Party Time

Thursday, May 12, 2011

While the end of lift-served skiing and riding for Winter 2010-2011 was last Sunday, guess what is in the forecast ...

Snow! Yes, you heard right, this rain is turning into upslope snow above 2500' and accumulating, maybe 6-8 inches. May snows are fairly common in the high terrain of Green Mountains, but they always feel like a surprise.

Last weekend's warm sunshine and awesome turns were a great way to finish.

How about a collective electronic high five to celebrate one of the best seasons ever? Yeah!

Speaking of high fives, the skiing and riding may be done, but the fun never really stops at Sugarbush. On May, 11th at the The Big Picture in Waitsfield, the High Fives Foundation is hosting a free party and presentation.

Started by Valley skier and Vermont native Roy Tuscany, High Fives is a non-profit that supports winter sport athletes who have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dreams. Everybody loves a party!

Check out a new video ... spring is twice as nice.

Speaking of parties ... check out the upcoming Waitsfield Farmers' Market, Green Mountain Opera Brunch and the 1st Annual Solstice Brew-Grass Festival!

Be sure check the full listing of fun events here.

Snow is nice, but some folks think grass works fine too.

To all our supporters and guests, thanks for another great winter.

Even with the snow, spring is still springing. The multi-hued leaves are fairly jumping out of the end of the branches, raucous flowers bloom daily and the birds are already singing up a storm.

Fiddleheads are up.

Enjoy the change of seasons and we hope to see you soon!
