Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah, everyone!

Winter is here. Sugarbush opened this week, once again dropping in top-to-bottom at Lincoln Peak. During this short span, we've gone through two park installations, two powder days and a flood watch rainstorm, with temps that have spanned from 40+ degrees to below zero. Gotta love VT.   

Happy Winter!
Happy Winter! Get your Quad Packs now. This deal ends on Saturday.

Despite the shifts in weather, the turns have been generally great. This is partly due to our snowmakers and groomers, but Mother Nature deserves some love too.

When yesterday's rain ended and the mercury begin to dive, it was looking like we were facing a skate and crampon day. But the new snow that fell overnight bonded pretty well with the older base and this morning's turns were among the best of the season, so far.

We opened new terrain on Super Bravo today and expect to crank up First Time and Easy Rider tomorrow. This means we will have trails for all abilities this weekend and lots more to come.

The upcoming weather looks good for snowmaking, with a few chances for natural snow too. We'll be opening trails as fast as possible. Stay tuned for updates. 

The sun is coming out for a few days. Join us for a great weekend of skiing and riding!
