Deep Pockets - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Last week was a busman's holiday for me, and I apologize for not getting a Stoke update out to you. We went searching for the "greatest snow on earth", but it turned out to be right here at Sugarbush. It is good to be home.

Winter Storm Ukko piled into the Mad River Valley with over 20 inches of snow in the last few days. While the sun has been shining today, we have a good chance for more snow starting tonight and running through Saturday.  This weekend might be the apex of the season.

On top of the snow, we have a full event schedule to round out the fun. Saturday is the 25th Annual Chez Henri Cup race in the morning and Dummy Big Air in the afternoon.

This is also the last weekend of the Seasonal Programs and there are group parties all over the place. Many thanks to all the families, friends and employees that make the programs possible. Even though the organized fun is wrapping up, I expect to see everyone's smiling faces for a few more weeks, at least. The turns are too tasty to stop now.

The mountains are coated, the temps are nearly perfect and we've got more snow coming.  Better be here. Now.
