Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa Announces East Wing / Spa & Sports Club Grand Opening

In the heart of the Ski Capital of the East, the Stoweflake Resort & Conference Center celebrates the Grand Opening of the newly constructed East Wing and Spa & Sports Club with a spectacular celebration to take place on Friday June 12, 1998, 3:00-7:00 p.m. (rain or shine). The new East Wing houses 40 luxury guest rooms and suites, all new Spa & Sports Club, Copley Hospital Sports Medicine Center, and significantly expanded conference/meeting facilities. This new wing is dedicated to Beatrice and Stuart Baraw, the Stoweflake`s founders.

Guests from various parts of the Northeast will be on hand for this festive event to experience sample spa treatments, tours of the facilities, a vendor “mini-trade show,” Spirit of Stoweflake tethered hot air balloon rides, local artist exhibit and the ribbon cutting by Governor Howard Dean and members of the Baraw family between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. There will also be entertainment and refreshments.

With this expansion, the 1998 Pinnacle Award-winning Stoweflake Conference Center now has 15,000 square feet of flexible meeting space that comfortably accommodates small and large groups in as many as 12 meeting rooms. The resort now includes 96 guestrooms, and 25 luxury townhouses. The 40 new guestrooms and suites feature fireplaces, sitting/work areas with multi-line phones with data ports, wet bars, and microwaves, with suites also offering oversized Jacuzzi baths and balconies with breathtaking views of Mount Mansfield.

The new Spa & Sports Club features the latest in work-out equipment - Cybex weight circuit, cardiovascular equipment and a racquetball/squash court in addition to the existing indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Luxury spa and salon treatments include over 30 types of massage techniques, wraps and energy work, as well as sports medicine, physical therapy, and personal training.

This grand opening is an exciting event for the entire Stowe community, as the new facility will be able to service large conferences, weddings and groups indoors that previously would have had to look to Burlington to handle their numbers, thereby attracting more year-round business to the town. The Baraw Family is very pleased to be celebrating this event during their 35th anniversary year with members of the Vermont community.
