The Lamoille Valley is a scenic area in north-central Vermont traversed by the broad Lamoille River Valley. Offering a unique combination of farming, recreation, commerce and industry, the area is most renowned for its two major ski areas: Stowe and Smugglers' Notch.
Stowe is host to arts and crafts shows, a balloon festival, and many other special events. The weekend-long British Invasion event is held annually in Stowe during the third week of September. The Stowe Theater Guild, along with Hyde Park Opera House, and the Waterbury Festival Players, combine to offer theatrical productions each summer.
At 4,393 feet, Mount Mansfield is Vermont's highest mountain and is a ski area with terrain suitable for intermediate to expert skiers. The famous "Front Four" trails (National, Lift Line, Starr and Goat) are the most challenging. The lower altitude Spruce Peak is suitable for beginners and intermediates.
There are many hiking trails on and around Mount Mansfield and Smugglers' Notch State Park, such as a portion of the Long Trail, all of which are maintained by the Green Mountain Club. There are also rock climbing and ice climbing activities. There is also mountain biking in the area. Besides public trails, there are private trails at the Trapp Family Lodge.
The Lamoille River Valley is located in the heart of northern Vermont. The Lamoille River's headwaters begin in the wilds of Vermont's famed Northeast Kingdom, and flows steadily west to its delta in Lake Champlain (which, after the Great Lakes, is the largest body of fresh water in the U.S.).
