I might be skiing Stowe this winter, most likely in Feb., how much harder is this trail in winter, with skis and boots?
A side trail as you start up the Cliff Trail, bear to your left at the first fork after you enter the Clff Trail from the service road below the Gondola House. Follow up to a large flake on the cliff wall. Scramble through the narrow slot. Snow is often in the bottom of the slot through July. Scramble out where it rejoins the Cliff Trail. A fun side bar.
