Revisiting Stowe, Vermont

The snowless winter has ended here in South Florida and the snowbirds have flown north. I have missed seeing snow and so I pulled out photos from a trip to Stowe, Vermont to revisit. I can still clearly remember the wind in my face, my hair gently blown back, as we raced across the snow in our one horse open sleigh.

We stayed in a 2 room suite at Topnotch Resort in Stowe. Our room had hand painted furniture with wide picture windows to take in the mountain vistas and the snowfall. The ski runs lined the mountains in the distance.

The trip was a business trip, an achievement bonus. The President’s Club dinner and award ceremony was held at Nonna’s, the on site restaurant. Here is Jeff receiving his award.

We toured the little town’s attractions. Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory is located nearby just outside of Stowe in Waterbury. We took the tour with the group.

We also strolled through downtown Stowe stopping at Shaw’s landmark store for a visit.

Another fun tour was the Cold Hollow Cider Mill where they make fresh pressed apple cider and donuts. Perfect companions to the crisp cool Vermont weather.

And this was the last time I played in the snow…
