Grin Spin - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, June 6, 2013

After a hot weekend, late spring delivered some absolutely perfect days this week, with bright sunshine, low humidity and comfortable temps. The fields, forests and mountains seemed to glow with clean freshness, you just couldn't help smiling.

Even without the great weather, reasons for grinning were quite ample.

Summer isn't even here yet and the Valley is already buzzing with sunny fun. Next up is a huge weekend of bikes and beers.

The BrewGrass Festival and the Eastern States Cup Super D/DH are June 15-16. Tickets are going fast for the fest and there are cash purses for the races. Get your gravity on, then soothe your sore muscles with a huge selection of great beer. Even if you don't win the race, this is a win-win situation.

The golf course is in great shape and this is likely the last week for this extra special price. Be sure to get in a few rounds before the price starts to climb into peak season.

The Mad River Valley's natural beauty is also ramping up to peak season, with a literal jungle erupting around us. The stark contrast from winter's austerity to summer's abundance is always awe-inspiring.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Saturday looks partly damp, but Sunday is supposed to be another perfect day. Better be here!
