    • In Season, Winter 2018-19

      As four-time Olympian Larry Damon famously said, Stowe's annual Race to the Cabin is "a pretty easy race; there's only one hill." Yes, but that hill entails a 1,000-foot elevation gain in just five kilometers. Racers tackle the uphill course, climbing deep into the woods to the finish line at Trapp Family Lodge's Slayton Pasture Cabin, where hot soup, sandwiches and a toasty fire await. The record race time? Seventeen minutes. For visitors who'd like to take things slower, the cabin is open daily in winter, and the lodge's 2,500 acres include 37 miles of groomed trails and 62 miles of backcountry trails for cross-country skiers of all levels.
