SPRUCE PEAK AT STOWE MOUNTAIN RESORT, MORE THAN A WINTER HAVEN
Think Vermont and picture iconic scenery, the Green Mountains, year-round recreation and tempting food and drink like locally sourced cheeses, maple syrups and spirits. But always unparalleled are winter skiing and boarding.
Over the years, Stowe Mountain Resort has evolved as a leading, family-centric vacation destination.
The Lodge at Spruce Peak
Families can enjoy a winter 2020 vacation at Spruce Peak, located at the base of Stowe Mountain Resort, despite the challenges posed by COVID-19. The Resort is committed to a multilayered program of protocols to ensure the safety of visitors and staff alike. Spruce Peak is accredited by the Global Bio-risk Advisory Council, and is now partnering with Hyatt Hotels on a Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment for an even greater layer of precaution.
Spruce Peak is a year-round, full service resort. The Village Center sweeps around an impressive ice-skating rink; boasts a 400-seat Performing Arts Center, a 21,000 square foot spa, a spacious fitness center, shopping, restaurants, a $90-million Adventure Center, and the Alpine Clubhouse, all linked by heated sidewalks.

Spruce Peak has cultivated close ties with the local growers, dairy-farmers, roasters, distilleries and breweries to bring guests authentic local palates. A favorite place for après ski is the WhistlePig Pavilion. The rustic eatery serves fire-baked raclette cheese, local cider, Vermont craft beer and artisanal WhistlePig cocktails. With sharing dishes aplenty and a side of live music, it’s the perfect stop fresh off the slopes. Inside The Lodge, the farm-to-table Solstice Restaurant rivals any prominent New York City restaurant for locavore dishes and impeccable service. The Chef’s Table offers an unforgettable nightly tasting menu with sophisticated wine pairings. Sushi lovers can find the Lounge for freshly assembled sushi rolls with fish directly flown in from Boston’s premium markets. Come nightfall, adults can head to the LineHouse Speakeasy. Or, grab the kids, strap on ice-skates and carve circles on the ice, play a round of ice curling or embark on a starlit snowshoeing adventure.

Currently under construction and slated to open for the 2021 ski season, is Spruce Peak’s premium ownership opportunity, One Spruce Peak. Nestled between the slopes and the village, One Spruce Peak features 27 private ski-in, ski-out residences, townhomes and penthouses with square footage and amenities galore.

When the snow melts, families can head to the Mountain Course, named by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 10 new courses in the US.” Ownership at One Spruce Peak provides an opportunity to create family memories, be it summertime hiking, biking, fishing and golfing, or winter thrills shredding the slopes. Whether it’s fireside s’mores or horse drawn carriage rides, one thing is certain, a great time will be had by all.
