After three full days of kids’ camp at Smugglers’ Notch, we were ready for some family time by the time we arrived at the Stowe Mountain Lodge. Luckily, there were loads of activities located right on property that were perfect for our whole family.
On Saturday morning, we headed outside the lodge to Spruce Peak where there’s an activities park including alpine slide. Guests can either purchase a single ride pass, a four ride park, or a day pass to the activities. I found it to be similar to Attitash Mountain Resort, on a smaller scale. We had the day pass, so the kids visited the trampoline bungee, the climbing wall, and the obstacle course before we headed over to the alpine slide. Both kids loved the trampoline bungee and would have stayed on for much more time if they could.
To access the alpine slide, you take a ski lift to the top. Although my kids were old enough to ride alone, they weren’t tall enough, so we rode tandem. The kids could easily have spent the day there. It wasn’t crowded at all, so we were able to get several rides in easily. We loved the slides – the equipment was nice and new and it was so much fun.
The gondola to the top of the mountain is across the street (you have to drive), and the mountain road is down the road quite a bit. We decided to forgo both of those in lieu of more time at the gorgeous Stowe Mountain Lodge pool. If we’d had an extra day, we definitely would have checked them out.
