Embrace the winter weather when you take a family vacation in Stowe, Vermont this winter. Take time to chase the snowflakes, and get cozy as you nestle in the mountains.

At the Brass Lantern Inn, we are here to help you plan the perfect winter getaway for you and your family.
Here are four things you should consider:
When to plan your winter vacation to Stowe, Vermont?
Whether you are traveling with a small or large group, we recommend making your reservation as soon as you know your family’s availability. Holiday vacations in Stowe, Vermont are popular. Lodging options will book up quickly, which is why it is important to not wait until the last minute to make your arrangements.

What to pack for your winter vacation in Stowe, Vermont?
Before you begin packing, research the area and find out what the weather will look like during your time here. A great place to look is AccuWeather as this will give you an idea of the average temperature and precipitation.
Now, you will be able to plan ahead and pack the attire that fits the weather. You will want to bring layers of clothes that you can add or remove to match the temperature and level of exertion for whatever activity you are performing.
If you plan to partake in winter sports, special clothing or gear requirements will need to be considered. Your best bet is to stick to synthetic materials, like fleece, for most layers with a down or synthetic down jacket for the extra-warm layer. A waterproof outer shell jacket and pants will round out your clothing selections.
If you do not own your own equipment and you will need to rent upon arrival, consider calling ahead of time to check pricing and availability. Keep in mind that renting equipment can take the hassle out of traveling with bulky gear.
