Sugar Slalom, held annually at Stowe since 1940.
A celebration of Spring on skis.
The Stowe Sugar Slalom is one of the most recognized alpine races in America. The two-day event can attract over 1,000 avid racers and up to 600 spectators. All participants are invited to dress up in costumes best representing our theme, a Spring Celebration.
Originating as a celebration of the arrival of Spring and the tapping of maple trees, the Sugar Slalom is held in a Mardi Gras atmosphere complete with music, barbecue on the hill, fantastic ski racing and festive costumes. To top it all, the race also features a unique Vermont treat, maple syrup on snow, donuts and pickles at the finish.
Open to USSA licensed racers ages 10 and up, this race attracts some of the best talent in the East and is a great opportunity to lower USSA points late in the season.
