May Be Sweet - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, May 3, 2012

Usually, the late spring message features a few closing carves on the mountain and the promise of summer fun to come. This year, we've been enjoying biking, hiking and golf for several weeks already and only random little patches of snow currently dot the ski trails. The winter was weirder than normal, but we haven't let it cramp our adventures.

At least with a shortened season, we will be probably have nice clean roads and trails from the upcoming Mad Triathlon on May 12th! We hope the 34th annual running will be more fun than ever.

If you haven't had a chance to train hard, don't worry. This is a fun-based race with shorter distances and lots of team options. Most folks with decent baseline fitness, i.e. skiers and riders, can handle them. Our Kid's Triathlon is really fun too, complete with a cool obstacle course and bike park section. Be sure to bring your young athletes.

The Mad Triathlon is benefit for the Mad River Path Association and we are looking for volunteers to help with the race. To sign up, please send an email to path@madriverpath.com. Support the Path, support the Valley!

While the spring green-up continues apace, winter threw us another (final?) party late last week. There are people who get annoyed when snow falls "out-of-season", but these are some of the most beautiful storms. Aside from the pretty vistas, May accumulations also hold unseen benefits.

Last snow? Maybe. Nice, free fertilizer.

Check out some fresh video from Egan!  More fertilizer. ;)

May can be sweet, you just have to be ready for fleeting fun. Have a great weekend.
