The long awaited date is almost here ... Mt. Ellen opens tomorrow, December 20th! With a ton of new snow in the last two weeks, solid snowmaking temps and good old fashioned hard work, most of the mountain will be open. This includes unveiling the full Sunnyside Double terrain park.

The Sugarbush Parks team has been planning, prepping and building for several months and the results show. Powder, parks and pleasantry, the party starts at 9AM tomorrow. Better be here.

The snow has just kept falling, but this weekend looks a bit challenging. We are fairly certain that the texture of the snow is going to change. Cold returns early next week. Keep doing your snow dances.
