Peak Season - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, August 16, 2012

While August is ripe with the harvests of summer, and blessed with an ideal blend of sun, rain and comfortable temps, the signs of change are evident. Even as we relax by the river, roll down the trail or enjoy a picture-perfect round at the golf course, back-to-school preparations are in full swing, the upper elevation leaves are changing and we are starting to talk about the coming winter in earnest. 

Blueberry Lake trails!

So here we are, standing at the peak of summer and looking down the other side. The long range forecasts are starting to come out (it's too early to believe them, but they look really good) and both Powder's and Backcountry's first issues have shown up on the newsstands.

If you are a warm weather fan, don't worry, winter doesn't start tomorrow. But it is definitely time to soak up all of the summer goodness that you can before it's gone.

The cricket crescendo is upon us, but like all the other seasonal peaks, it's only here for a short period. We hope to see you soon.
