Spruce Peak at Stowe Mountain Resort Master Plan & Design

Stowe, VT

Stowe Mountain Resort is a world-class, family-friendly destination in Vermont nestled between Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak. As one of New England’s premier winter resorts, Stowe Mountain has become a first-rate vacation spot for skiers and snowboarders, but it also offers year-round activities including rock climbing, ice skating, zip-lining, and entertainment at the Performing Arts Center. Creating a comfortable, upscale, four-season community within a tough, mountainous terrain is no easy task. Members of VHB have been involved in the planning, design, and creation of Spruce Peak Realty’s luxury development, the Village Plaza, and the resort’s most desirable amenities.

Since 2003, our planning and design professionals have helped shape Stowe Mountain Resort by supporting the vision, master planning, and detailed design of the transformational $400-million Spruce Peak at the base of Stowe. A premiere location for a residential development, Spruce Peak’s homes offer both pedestrian street access and desirable snow fronts with ski-in-ski-out access. A village green and ice rink, which form the heart of the village, were constructed over a 200-car parking structure to make efficient use of valuable real estate. The Over Easy Gondola, located at the head of the Village, provides a direct skier connection to the Mount Mansfield lifts and trails over a scenic highway of statewide significance. Most recently, VHB supported the development of The Stowe Mountain Lodge Wedding Venue and The Village at Spruce Peak Entry Gateway Study.
