STOWE, VT - August 2008 - The Vermont Ski Museum proudly announces the inauguration of the Paul Robbins Ski Journalism Award. This award is given in memory of Paul Robbins, of Perkinsville, Vermont, who dedicated his life to promoting the sport of skiing through writing. The Museum will present Stu Campbell with the Award in September.
This New England village offers first-rate lodging, from luxurious to laidback.
After a day on the slopes at Ascutney, Killington or Okemo, the timeless village of Woodstock, settled by railroad and banking barons in 1768, remains one of New England's most charming retreats. Though not slopeside—the ski resorts are 10, 17 and 25 miles away, respectively—Woodstock's architecturally rich main street, flanking a central square known as the Village Green, offers a historic twist on a Vermont ski and stay. Settle into one of the vintage brick homes or restored Victorians converted into cozy hotels and B&Bs.
Stowe's considerable charm is about to become more charming. A $220 million expansion plan is moving ahead. Among other things, it includes additional lifts, snowmaking and terrain, along with a "hamlet" at the base of Spruce Peak.
