Autumn Arrives - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Welcome to the official beginning of autumn! Alright, it doesn't really start until Sunday, but there is no harm in starting this party a little early. The colors of fall never last long enough anyway. Better get'em while they're hot.

We had some frost last night and while the day time temps can still rival summer, the corner has been turned. The Mad River Valley's high ridgelines commonly see their first snow by the middle of October, only a few weeks from now. Snowmaking isn't very far behind and projected winter opening day is November 17th.

But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Fall fun is about to peak!

The slanted sunshine of autumn lights the hills and mountains in a warm glow, the foliage hues and sky blues sparkle from the ground up, and the best golf, hiking, riding and lift rides of the year kick into gear. If you can't make it for a visit in the next two weeks, be sure to join us for Community Day on October 6th. This date is usually ideal to hit the middle of autumn's apex.

Come enjoy fall's finest with us soon. If you wait too long, it'll be winter before you know it.
