With an increasing number of ski areas offering lift served mountain biking, Stowe Mountain Resort applied for a Vermont Act 250 permit on September 14, 2015.
The filing proposes the construction of a 3.85 mile beginner trail and a 2.55 mile advanced trail. The new trails would generally be located in wooded areas with a few ski trail crossings and would be serviced by the 1,170 vertical foot Mountain Triple Chairlift.
The two trails, which could debut in 2016, would be the first phase in a larger mountain bike project.
Stowe previously offered lift served mountain biking on Spruce Peak from circa 1998 through 2000.
Killington, Okemo, Q Burke, Mount Snow, and Sugarbush currently offer lift served mountain biking in Vermont.
