Stone Hut Updates & Alerts
- Due to the continued impacts from the Covid-19 pandemic we will not be operating the Stone Hut for the 2021 winter season. Please sign up for the Stone Hut Newsletter below for updates for next season.
Take Rt 100 North into the village of Stowe (about 10 miles). In Stowe, turn left onto Rt. 108 (also called the Mountain rd.). Continue for 7 miles. The Vermont State Ski Dorm will be on your right.
The historic Stone Hut was originally built as a warming hut in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). These same crews cut some of the original ski trails on Mt. Mansfield. Once a home away from home for the ski pioneers of Vermont, it is now operated as a public lodging facility with a unique partnership between the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation and the Stowe Mountain Resort (Mt. Mansfield Company) between Mid-November and Mid-April.
Amenities / Policies
The hut sleeps up to twelve people with wood platforms. The only heat is by a wood stove. Firewood is provided in a woodshed outside of the Hut. Kindling is not provided. Guests must furnish all cooking, lighting and sleeping gear and be prepared for winter camping. The Stone Hut operates on a carry in - carry out policy. The Hut is an historic building located in a fragile mountain ecosystem. Please keep the area in and around the Hut clean.
