Stratton Mountain, VT (December 15, 2008) — There are only a few days left until the holidays, shopping still needs to be done, and individuals throughout the region may prefer spending their time skiing or snowboarding Stratton has the solution.

The Stratton Village located at the base of the mountain has always provided a convenient outlet for resort guests, but how about as a shopping destination in and of itself? With the recent additions of the North Face Summit Shop, Burton at Stratton, and Life is Good stores, coupled with tried and true favorites such as Bogner, Von Bargen’s Jewelery, Syd & Dusty’s, Moutainside Photo, and many more, holiday shoppers may find everything they need at the base of the mountain.

Who says holiday shopping needs to be stressful and involve crowded malls? Theoretically, Tony Micelli could take a top to bottom run down Stratton favorite Upper and Lower Spruce and then purchase a beautiful wine rack, set of 4 Riedel glasses, and a couple of nice bottles Purgatory Pinot Noir at Domaine Wine Bar and Bottle Shop for his lovely girlfriend Angela Bower, before he heads back up for an afternoon cruise on a perfectly groomed Kidderbrook trail. The convenience allows shoppers and snow riders to enjoy the leisurely Vermont pace and be the boss of their shopping experience.

After an exciting day learning to snowboard in Stratton’s Learn to Ride program, Phillip Drummond can head to First Run Ski Shop and buy a new pair of snowshoes for his son Willis before heading to the Spa at Stratton and purchasing a gift certificate for an 85 minute, Total Transformation massage for his nanny, Mrs. Garrett who’s been working hard all year. He appreciates the variety because as they say, different strokes for different folks.

Whether up for a day of hassle free shopping or looking to squeeze some gift purchasing in between runs, The Stratton Village Square is the perfect one stop holiday destination.

Additional Stratton products such as the X2 card (free day of skiing or snowboarding and discounts every day), Resort Gift Cards, and Season Passes make excellent gifts as well for any skiing or snowboarding enthusiast.
