Vermont’s Stowe Mountain Resort saw a foot of fresh powder this week—a welcome treat for Eastern folk who’ve been roughing rain and 60 degree temperatures this season, while the western side of the nation hogs all the goods.

The crew in this film, shot last season, show us how to make the most of the rowdy Vermont resort.
