When’s the last time Stowe finished 17th on any list of the top ski resorts in the East?
That’s where the storied property lands in Ski Magazine’s 2022 Reader Resort Survey, an annual roundup that has always had Stowe in its upper echelon. This year, Smugglers’ Notch takes the top slot of a list highlighted by smaller resorts. Behemoth Killington is at No. 3, but Mad River Glen makes perhaps its highest-ever appearance at No. 5.
Jay Peak, Cannon, Sugarloaf, and Sugarbush are the other New England ski areas in the top 10.
Sunday River, also normally in the higher rankings, finished 14th. Heck, Wachusett finished two spots higher than Stowe this year.
