Game On - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, December 27, 2012

In the course of the last week or so, we have gone from being less than half open to 100% at both Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen. The snow just keeps dumping and it's become hard to differentiate between all the storms.

We certainly won't have any problems remembering the one we are in the middle of right now, though. Winter Storm Euclid has already dumped 15" - 20" in less than 24 hours and is supposed to crank for a good while longer. Today has been really sweet. Tomorrow might even be better.

Over 100 inches this season!
Over 100" this season so far and we are in the middle of a blizzard!

We often remember to thank the groomers, lifties, patrol and all the mountain workers who help make our ski and ride days so much fun. But on days like this, the road crews deserve a special show of gratitude too. Not many of us could get here without them.

If you can believe it, we are already over 100" for the season and it's not even New Year's yet. At this rate, we could be in for a record winter. Keep the snow dances going!

Castlerock lift opened today, although we have been hiking over there for several days. The turns have been excellent on this storied peak, but watch out for the big bull moose who is prowling the Castlerock/ North Lynx areas.

Even if we didn't get any snow this week, it has been a great stretch of skiing and riding at Sugarbush. Between the snowmaking and sunshine, how could you have a bad day on the mountain? Throw in multiple storms, and we are smiling a mile wide.

The holiday week is full of great events and alternate fun, the mountain is in prime condition and tomorrow is another powder day. We are only missing one thing, you. 

Better be here.
