Culinary Delights at Sugarbush

  • Timbers Restaurant is the signature dining establishment of Sugarbush Resort in Warren, VT. The menu focuses on showcasing local farms and includes dishes like Wood Mountain Fish Seared Ahi, Fried Misty Knoll Chicken Caesar Salad, Vermont Family Farm Pork Cut, and Kohlrabi and Artichoke Salad, in addition to a selection of dry-aged steaks. The restaurant was fashioned after a 19th-century round dairy barn with post and beam construction and is just steps away from the chairlift.

    Castlerock Pub is the perfect place to take a break during a day of skiing and warm up with one of the best beer selections a ski resort can offer. Beers on tap include local favorites like Heady Topper, Fiddlehead, 14th Star, and many others. The better-than-bar-food menu features Vermont Farm-Raised Burgers with Cabot cheddar cheese, Kale Caesar Salads, and Spicy Catfish Tacos.

    Hogan's Pub at the Sugarbush Resort Golf Club boasts some of the best views of Lincoln Peak and the Mad River Valley. Diners can enjoy sandwiches, burgers, and apps on in the pub or on the deck, as well as a selection of craft beers and wines.

Sugarbush Resort Golf Club

  • Sugarbush's par-71 Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed golf course offers breathtaking vistas of Sugarbush and the surrounding Mad River Valley. PGA professionals RJ Austin and Paul Meunier offer in-depth lessons for golfers. One-on-one instruction, group clinics, camps for kids, and custom club fitting are all available.

    The Sugarbush Golf Club hosts a number of events throughout the summer and into the fall including the 4th Annual Mad River Valley Rotary Club Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 20th, Member/Guest Tournament on Saturday, July 25th, High Fives Foundation Benefit Golf Tournament on Friday, August 14th, and the Sugarbush Ryder Cup on Saturday, September 12th.

Downhill Mountain Biking

  • What do we do when we close the skiing trails for the winter? Reshape them into mountain bike trails of course. Sugarbush boasts over 20 miles of lift-served mountain bike terrain spanning across 37 trails. From easier, wide open trails to steep and narrow glade runs, we have downhill mountain bike terrain for everyone. For kids, Mountain Bike Adventure Camp is a great way to improve riding skills and take advantage of Sugarbush's skilled coaching staff. Private lessons and group sessions are also available for both children and adults looking to get out on the hill. For those that haven't ever downhill mountain biked before but want to get started, the First-Timer to Life-Timer Skills for the Hills Program makes it easy. Take three mountain bike lessons and earn a complimentary season pass at the end of the program. If lift-served mountain biking doesn't interest you, the Vermont Mountain Bike Assosciation has connected nearly sixty miles of mapped cross country trails to ours. Combined, that's over 3,000 feet of vertical descending into the villages of Warren, Waitsfield, Fayston, and Moretown.

    Sugarbush hosts the third and final stop in the Eastern States Cup East Coast Showdown series featuring enduro and downhill mountain bike races with a combined cash and prize purse of $14,000.

Environmental Initiatives

  • Sugarbush is an active member of the NSAA's Climate Challenge, an intricate carbon-footprint measuring system that assists resort's in meeting their green goals. Over the past five years, the resort has invested over $5 million in energy-efficient snowmaking including $1.8 million for the upcoming season to purchase 351 Snowlogic, HKD, and Ratnik snowguns. This capital project won a Green Mountain Award through VSAA for Best Efficiency Snowmaking Upgrade last season. All off-road vehicles (including groomers) run on a biodiesel blend. Sugarbush also works closely with the Mad Bus, the Mad River Valley's free seasonal bus service, to provide free public transportation during the winter for guests and employees.

    The resort annually recycles on average more than 112 tons of recyclable materials and currently composts over 13 tons of food waste per year with significant increases since 2010. Sugarbush purchases 100% post-consumer recycled paper products, eco-friendly cleaning supplies in bulk, and uses non-toxic parts for the vehicle and lift maintenance shops. Timbers Restaurant, Sugarbush's signature dining establishment, is a member of 1% For the Planet and donated over $10,000 to the Vermont Land Trust's Bragg Farm project. In 2012, the resort received the Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence for developing and implementing one of the first successful water quality remediation plans in Vermont to correct stormwater runoff issues, and continues with its water quality remediation efforts around the resort.

Partnership with Mad River Glen

  • Sugarbush continues to partner with neighboring ski resort Mad River Glen on a variety of offerings. The Threesome College Pass provides skiers with access to both Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen at Sugarbush as well as Mad River Glen. For an additional $80, For20s pass holders at Sugarbush can gain access to Mad River Glen midweek. Throughout the season the two ski areas also host events together including the Big Kicker in November and the Warren Fourth of July Parade. The three mountains are spread out over the same 9 miles of ridgeline with very short drives separating their base areas; Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen are connected by the Slide Brook Express chairlift.
