Stowe Winter Carnival

I went up to the Stowe, Vermont Winter Carnival today.  This ice scupture has a ram in the center and an Austrian beer stein at the top.  Notice the beautiful sky and the mountains in the distance.

The Trapp Family is the family depicted in the movie "The Sound of Music", thus the heavy Austrian influence.

A small view of the lodge.  There are many, many buildings.  I've been fortunate enough to experience dining here.  The ambiance cannot be beat.  A harpist provided the music for guests.

Sleigh Horses!

Just a few of the many ski trails in the area.

The trams actually go over the roadway as they proceed up the mountain to drop off skiiers.

Did you think I'd forget about yarn while on this little venture?

Happy Knitting!


  1. Thanks for sharing the photos. Very nice. Do we need to ask if you made any purchases at the yarn shop?

  2. Love all the beautiful pictures. I've seen this place on the Travel network.

  3. How beautiful....Looks like it was a great day to be there....I see your pics and I can remember being there...It's always a great place to visit...

  4. Oh Joansie! You are so blessed to live in such a breath taking environment! Even with all the snow, it still is beautiful, unlike Ohio. The months of Jan.- Mar. are ALWAYS gray and dingy.The sun rarely shows it's rays and the trees are barren and brown (no evergreens)and the snow,when there is any, usually is dingy after a few days.
    Thanks for sharing your photos! Love the mittens by the way!!

  5. And I thought the ice sculpture said "Lace" at first.

  6. I enjoyed this post very much. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures!

  7. Wow, how gorgeous and wonderful! Good for you that you went. I was hoping for a peek inside the shop, though! LOL
