In its first year of polling the 2300-member group, the members nominated 25 ski resorts from around the globe. From there, voting opened to all members. The final tally revealed a top 5 list of the best summer ski resorts in North America with Stowe earning the top spot.

Stowe has long been a favorite of adventure travelers and those wanting to head to the mountains to escape the humidity and heat. Ski Moms Fun members said, ”Stowe has multiple lakes within a short drive, mountains to hike, the best bike/run path, Main Street, farmers market, coffee shops, restaurants, swimming holes, tubing and the Ben and Jerry’s factory- 20 min away.”

Families have been flocking to Vermont to beat the heat for decades. “People are drawn to Stowe during our summer and fall months for inspiration, natural beauty and the adventures we offer on Vermont’s highest peak. There is an historical energy that animates our mountains and entire unique community,” said Bobby Murphy, general manager and vice president of Stowe Mountain Resort.
