Vermont Season Pass Deals

We have finally had our first hard frost and we woke up to snow in the higher elevations this morning! The foliage has been spectacular this fall, and as Stowe moves past peak it is time to start thinking SNOW and SKIING. There are still a few weeks left to take advantage of great deals on season passes and discount cards to area resorts and touring centers. 

Stowe Mountain Resort offers early season discounts on the traditional Gold and Silver passes but there are other cost saving options available as well. If you live or work in the area you may be eligible for The County Pass or the Stowe Area Association Pass. College Students, Young Adults and Seniors all are eligible for discount season passes and many of then also offer additional savings if purchased before 11/6/2016; so check out Stowe Mountain Resorts Pass Site for details.

Maybe you prefer one of Vermont's other fantastic resorts; or want to ski several different mountains this winter check out the  Ski Vermont website for discounts around the state. Want to leave the state this winter, ready to try skiing out West? You still don't need to pay rack rate, check out Snow.com for great deals on multi-resort passes in Colorado, Utah and others.

However you pay to play on the slopes or trails, just make sure you get out and enjoy this winter!

Read This Before Renting Your Home!

Stowe has seen condominium sales, and prices, rise significantly in the last two years. Much if this is attributed to the announcement of Vail Resorts purchasing Stowe. The popularity of websites such as Airbnb and VRBO have created a new market for condominium and single family home owners to rent properties when not in use, or make investments as income producing properties. If you are thinking about purchasing and renting, or are already doing so, there are some important things you should know to ensure your and your renters safety:

  • Make sure to contact your insurance agent to include extra coverage for renters
  • Make sure to have the proper smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed. In Vermont photoelectric smoke detectors are need to be in every sleeping room
  • A rental property falls under Vermont State safety requirements, so you will need to have a Fire and Safety inspection. For more information go to the State website here: http://firesafety.vermont.gov/

Please feel free to contact me any time regarding any questions you may have about anything that may relate to investing in properties, and/or renting.  The Town of Stowe is in the process of adopting some of these, and additional rules and regulations, so we can update you as well as guide you through this process, along with providing any key contacts to ensure your property is up to code and regulation.
