Scot Baraw
Vice President of Sales, Family Owner

As native of Stowe and having grown up at Stoweflake, no one has learned the ins and outs of the resort like Scot. After graduating from Trinity College and gaining experience in the hospitality industry, he rejoined his family at Stoweflake on the Sales Team in 1995. Scot’s upmost professionalism and outgoing nature has crafted him to become the most useful resource in leading his talented Sales and Conference Team. As for his favorite thing about Stowe: the fantastic outdoor opportunities for every season. Talk to him in person and he will likely get to talking about his talented two kids or his next outdoor sports adventure involving trail running or backcountry skiing down unchartered paths. (Trust us when we say he knows it all, we’re still trying to keep up with him.)

Travel is no stranger to Diane, however, when you ask her why she loves Stowe, Vermont in particular, her answer is the people, the mountains, the views and winter!
