No. 20 Topnotch at Stowe Resort & Spa, VT

2 of 22

Opened in 1959 as the first full resort at Stowe, Topnotch
secured a choice location at the base of Vermont’s tallest peak, enclosed by
maples and pines. The après-ski gets as much attention as the actual schussing
here—and a hot-stone massage in the 30,000-square-foot megaspa is most welcome
after a day on the slopes. But winter isn’t the only time worthy of a visit. In
the summer or in leaf-peeping season, you can hike the hillside trails and shop
for cheese and crafts in the white-steepled town.
