One of the things that makes Stowe a unique destination is it is truly a mountain environment.   Vermont’s highest peak is not afraid to challenge you with it’s weather while you are out trying to enjoy it’s splendor.

Here’s some of our favorite items to enjoy a day on the slopes.  

Arc’Teryx Kappa Hoody

Whether Down or Synthetic, a puffy jacket is a good friend on a cold day. Make sure to pick oe with a durable outer shell for those days you duck in the trees. If it's cold enough to wear a puffy, you probably don't need Gore-Tex.

A pair of good Gore-Tex 2L (Two-Layer) pants are must haves. Gore-Tex helps keep a wet chairlift at bay, while the extra mesh hung lining keeps the drafts away.   These also have a wallet pocket, which for some reason a bunch of brands skip ~we keep our season pass in our wallet, so we always have it.

The warmest gloves? Mittens.  With mittens your whole hand shares the warmth.   These aren’t the thickest mittens, which adds some versatility for warmer days, but what we love about these is how easy on & off they are when you do need some extra dexterity.
