The Stowe Tour de Snow is designed to showcase the best of what Stowe has to offer winter visitors, locals and neighbors alike. The idea is both simple and genius. On the 5.3 mile Stowe Recreation Path, families and friends ski, walk, snowshoe or run and participate in fun-filled activities grouped into stations each sponsored, organized, and staffed by local and area businesses and organizations.
The seven large stations include a combination of warm up exercises, yoga intro sessions, Nordic terrain park, "Learn to Ski and Snowshoe" clinics, dunk tank, biathlon and laser rifle target shooting, hockey puck shooting, sled-pulling contest, slalom ski course competition, snow disc golf, environmentally friendly winter arts & crafts, winter survival station, food and drinks, family bootcamp, and other games and contests on skis and snowshoes. The Stowe Tour de Snow finishes at the heart of Stowe Village, in the Helen day Art Center on Pond Street where participants are treated to more festivities, prizes, raffles, food and contests.
The Stowe Tour de Snow is a guaranteed success for families and individuals eager to try new snow experiences and enjoy a full day of activities on the Stowe Rec Path. Free Nordic ski equipment and lessons are offered to all registered children, as well as adaptive Nordic equipment for disabled athletes participating in this fun all inclusive accessible event! All proceeds from the Tour contribute to the enhancement of the winter use of the Stowe Rec Path and the greatly successful S.K.I.S. (Skiing Kids in Schools) program providing cross country ski equipment and professional instructions to Stowe School students grades 3-8.
