History

Alpine skiing came to Vermont when the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) cut the first trails on Mount Mansfield in 1933.[3] The National Ski Patrol was based on the Mount Mansfield Ski Patrol,[4] the oldest in the nation founded in 1934. With $37 million in revenue during Winter 2007-08, Stowe placed second to Killington Ski Resort's $37.3 million in Vermont.[5] Ahead of the 2011–2012 season, Stowe replaced the FourRunner high-speed quad with a new high-speed quad, constructed by Doppelmayr.[6]
