LUXURY VACATION HOMES FOR THE SAVVY TRAVELER

The first hour of skiing in my life went like this: Futile snowplow attempt. Attain breakneck speed. Throw myself into the snow. Groan in agony. Limp around picking up gear. Repeat. Eventually, two rescue guys came along to sweep the trail. They stood above me and watched my ski technique for a while, their cackles growing louder every minute. “Dude,� one of them asked, “what are you doing?�

flashback The first Sugar Slalom was held on the Nose Dive trail in 1939, organized by the Mt. Mansfield Ski Club. Our flashback dates back 36 years, to 1980.

The annual two-day race is a celebration of both spring and Vermont’s famous maple syrup season, when racers and spectators enjoy sugar on snow, pickles, and doughnuts at the finish area. “One of the most recognized alpine races in America,” according to the ski club, the Sugar Slalom features a “Mardi Gras atmosphere complete with music, barbecue on the hill, fantastic ski racing, and festive costumes—from pink tutus to ape suits!” The race can attract up to 1,000 racers and as many as 600 spectators. Despite the carnival atmosphere, the Sugar Slalom is an official USSA race, open to registered USSA skiers ages 10 and up. This year’s race will be held April 8 – 9.

QUESTION & ANSWER

J A S O N G E R H A R T: Lead lifty of the crew at Stowe Mountain STORY / aw { Yw { PHOTO / ] { Yw w~w

Ski lift attendants—lifties—are frontline personnel. They interact with skiers and riders all day long, many of whom they can call out to by first name. When it comes to human behavior, lifties see the good, the bad, and the ugly—and sometimes the awesome. Jason Gerhart started as a lifty at Stowe Mountain Resort four years ago and worked his way up to lead operator, which he says is the best job on the mountain. He supervises other lift attendants, ensures that lift areas are set up and ready for operation each morning, provides breaks for other attendants, oversees the end-of-day shutdown, and generally troubleshoots Mother Nature and the staff.

STOWE’S STONE HUT

STORY / Tommy Gardner PHOTOGRAPH / Gordon Miller

Work began this fall to replace the historic Stone Hut near the top of Mount Mansfield, with a few modern-era touches. Purists need not worry; they’ll be all but invisible. “Listen to that,” Frank Spaulding said to one of the men using a whirring power drill to secure a frame corner. “They didn’t have that 80 years ago.” The Stone Hut, built in 1935, burned down last Christmas Eve, after some friends left wet logs leaning against the woodstove. The original structure would have turned 80 this year, and state forestry officials are excited that it’ll be

“There’s a lot of talk about narrative in art. When you get a really specific scenario and no

narrative, meaning you can’t see yourself within the world of the painting, you are forced to see the painting as an image.”

DINING AT THE MOUNTAIN THE CANTEEN in the NEW Adventure Center Integrated into our children’s programs during the day and available for casual family dining and takeout at night.

GREAT ROOM BAR & GRILL at Spruce Camp Base Lodge Don’t insult the Great Room Grill by calling it a cafeteria. Chefs at four cooking stations prepare gourmet breakfast, lunch and après-ski fare to order. The Great Room Grill is recognized as one of the premier on-mountain cafés in North America.

THE CLIFF HOUSE

HOURGLASS in Stowe Mountain Lodge

The Cliff House dining room is at the top of the Mount Mansfield Gondola and looks out on a stunning panorama of the surrounding alpine peaks. Not to be outdone by the view, our Chefs serve award-winning American cuisine with a rustic Vermont flair, using the freshest seasonal ingredients. On select Saturdays, the restaurant hosts its famous Summit Series—a gondola ride and six-course candlelit dinner and periodic ala carte dining by reservation. Check stowe.com for Summit Series calendar. Available for business and social events. 802.253.3665 cliffhouse@stowe.com

The seasonal cocktails, extraordinary wine cellar and regional microbrews, including the Lodge’s signature Hourglass Ale, will get you in the door. But the contemporary and classic New England-inspired menu offerings might keep you around all night. Lunch, après-ski, dinner. 802.760.4735

SOLSTICE in Stowe Mountain Lodge Elegant without being stuffy, Solstice features local artisan-inspired cuisine using farm-totable produce, Vermont cheeses and all-natural meats. Private wine tastings and a dining room for up to 16 guests are also available. Serving breakfast and dinner daily. Call for dinner reservations: 802.760.4735

THE DEN at the Mansfield Base Lodge Every mountain needs a dive bar. This has been ours for over 50 years. Full bar and local beer. Live music on weekends. Open daily 11am to 6pm. MANSFIELD CAFE at the Mansfield Base Lodge

800.253.4SKI | stowe.com

Your traditional lunch break and group meet-up spot. Hearty soups, great burgers and grilled sandwiches are a focus at this classic café. Breakfast, lunch, snacks from 7:30am to 4pm daily.


Artisanal ingredients and chef-driven seasonal dishes —at Stowe eating isn’t just something you do between activities, it’s one of the main attractions. MIDWAY CAFE, BAR & BBQ at Midway Lodge If you’re skiing or riding off the Gondola, take a mid-morning break for some coffee and pastries or grab hand-tossed pizzas, deli sandwiches and soups. Don’t miss out on the slopeside Bar & BBQ featuring house-made BBQ specialties. Live entertainment on Saturdays. Café breakfast, lunch, snacks from 8:30am to 4pm daily. OCTAGON CAFE at the top of the FourRunner Quad Enjoy famous grilled flatbread sandwiches, soups, salads, chef-prepared daily specials and an amazing collection of local art on display. Serving light breakfast and lunch 8:30am to 2:30pm daily. Beer and wine service available. WAFFLE CABIN at the Gondola Summit and Gondola Base Hand-warmers are overrated. Enjoy secret-recipe Belgian sugar waffles, hot apple cider, hot cocoa, fresh-brewed coffee and snacks. Wednesday-Sunday and daily during holiday periods.

SKINNY PANCAKE at Spruce Peak Plaza Serving crepes and other locally inspired and sourced cuisine.

THE PANTRY An upscale Vermont country market showcasing an abundance of local and regional food products.

Thanks for a Great Summer! Many thanks friends and guests for supporting us through our very best summer ever! In May we took a chance and built a brick patio to offer outdoor dining with pastoral and mountain views. We had no idea it could become so popular! Chef Gary’s winter selections include his delicious slow roasted duck with red cabbage and spiced apples, smoked Grafton Cheddar chicken with sherry cream sauce and the much-loved seafood stew. Our grilled romaine salad with blue cheese and bacon was so popular this summer we just have to keep it on the menu. Mark’s home-made fettuccine continues to be a crowd pleaser and will be served with an alfredo sauce this winter. Things have been a bit different around here with Harry (18) off to Edinburgh University for his freshman year. Our apartment above the restaurant is just a little bit quieter without him and we’re anxious for his holiday return visit. Carter (6) keeps asking how long until Christmas – not as much for Santa but so he can see Harry. Hamish (14) is a now a freshman in high school and continues his pursuit of basketball. Linda and I are excited for a snowy winter and look forward to reconnecting with our old winter friends. We’re hoping to make new “old friends� this season and share our bistro with everyone.

Cheers! Mark, Linda and the boys

MEET THE ALCHEMISTS The inside story of how John and Jen Kimmich spun hops and hard work into liquid gold



MEET THE ALCHEMISTS

IT’S

just before 9:30 and the Alchemist Brewery won’t open for another hour and a half, but that doesn’t stop carful after carful of beer-thirsty customers, or “hopheads” as some describe themselves, from trying to pull into the company’s still-closed parking lot off Cottage Club Road. “Sorry,” says Alchemist employee Shane Rumrill, as he patiently explains to yet another driver that the parking lot won’t open until 10 o’clock on this sunny Saturday morning. “We will open in a half hour. Could you please come back then. And it would be great if you wouldn’t park on the roadside. It bothers our neighbors.”

Over the next 15 minutes Rumrill repeats the same mantra to drivers of more than a dozen cars, many of which sport outof-state license plates. All of these beer lovers, including a “beercationing” couple from Iowa (“Hi, we’re Tim and Julie Carlisle-Kane from Elkader, Iowa”), have descended on the Stowe brewery for the same reason: The chance to buy a case of Heady Topper, the ultra-hoppy Alchemist brew that’s been rated “Best in the World” and is available only in Vermont. The brewery is fast becoming the craft beer lovers’ Mecca. As yet another driver tries to sneakily pull into the parking lot, Rumrill, sounding slightly exasperated, repeats his request. Pointing to several cars that have parked up the road and are waiting—or hovering—for the lot to open, he tells me, “It’s nutty. It’s almost always like this on weekends. People go a little bit crazy for our beer!” Make that “a lot crazy” as I will discover time and time again during the week I spend investigating the story behind the beer that’s turned the craft brewing industry on its head and made a young, hardworking Stowe couple, John and Jen Kimmich, successful—and rich—beyond their wildest dreams.

a glorious collaboration

magine a newly built home where the owner smiles

and sighs, “I loved coming up here every day to hang out with the crew—Vermonters care about what they do”; where the builder enthuses, “The house was a joy to build!”; and where the architect adds, “I have a vision but the outcome is all of us. It’s not just me. It is us.”

That, friends, is sublime.

The house is cedar-shingled, set high on a hillside on the edge of Stowe. In summer, stately maples give shade and seclusion. Its winter views sweep east to the Worcester Range, and to the south and west are long vistas of the Mad River Valley and beyond. Its style is both contemporary and timeless, with deep echoes of the Shingle style and great Adirondack lodges, yet with modern treatments of space and dimension.
