So much can change in two and a half years, and now with our enhancements, so have we.
Stowe Mountain Resort is officially open for the 2011/2012 winter season. The centerpiece of Stowe Mountain Resort is undoubtedly the four-diamond, ski-in ski-out Stowe Mountain Lodge located at the heart of the resort. A multitude of new additions including the South Wing of Stowe Mountain Lodge, Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, new menu launch in both of Stowe Mountain Lodge's dining options, KidSpa and additional meeting space nearly simultaneously opened December 2010.
Stowe Mountain Lodge opened an additional 173 guest rooms on December 10, 2010 more than doubling the capacity of the lodge and bringing the total room count to 312. The South Wing of Stowe Mountain Lodge features the same lavishly appointed accommodations as the 2-year old North Wing and also features a new type of guest room that did not exist previously: the Alpine View room. The Alpine View room type are rooms located on the fifth floor of the South Wing and boast panoramic views of Mount Mansfield, undisputedly the best views in Stowe.
The culinary team at Stowe Mountain Lodge launched a new menu for the signature restaurant Solstice, and après-ski lounge Hourglass. Keeping the lodge's farm-to-table culinary philosophy at the forefront of the creations, menus were announced just in time for ski-season.
With its grand opening on December 27, Stowe Mountain Resort is also home to the 420-seat state-of-the-art Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center. Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center is located just a few yards from the South Wing of Stowe Mountain Lodge, and hosts a variety of music, dance and cinema performances. The first two opening weeks were jam packed with performances from a variety of famous artists and performers. The intimate theater space allows the audience to experience exclusive performances in close proximity to the performers.
The Spa and Wellness Center at Stowe Mountain Lodge launched a KidSpa in December 2010, dedicated to providing fun and simplistic spa services to children of all ages. The KidSpa was developed as a response by guests who requested their children be incorporated into their spa experience. Offering services including kid nail painting and temporary tattoos, the KidSpa not only provides parents with additional children entertainment options, but it also allows kids to stop, breathe and re-sensitize to their surroundings. These services, or "Kid Rituals", are provided to children ages 5-14 year old and last between 45-60 minutes. All elements of their treatment will be available for sale at the KidSpa so parents can recreate the treatments at home.
Boasting over 56,000 square-feet of flexible meetings space, Stowe Mountain Resort is now the largest meetings venue in Vermont. With options varying from 12,000 square feet of indoor meeting space at Stowe Mountain Lodge to the airy and spacious Spruce Peak Base Camp, Stowe Mountain Resort accommodates a diverse spectrum of groups.
