Pre-Holiday Pattern - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Hello everyone,

People are starting to notice a pattern to this winter season. A few days before each holiday, we receive snow. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and now New Year's. If you haven't heard, a foot of new snow fell yesterday and last night. Meanwhile, Burlington saw an inch or two and it was sunny in Boston. There's more on the way too, with mostly snow in the forecast for the next 5-6 days.

Powder Paradise!

On Wednesday afternoon, it was snowing about as hard as it ever does at Sugarbush, truly d u m p i n g. A ton of new terrain opened today and tomorrow even more will be freed, including North Lynx, Valley House and Castlerock with hiking access from Heaven's Gate! Just a few days ago, we were limited to a few trails off main lifts, the mountain has since blossomed.

Looking great!

If the snow and trails aren't quite enough to get you excited, we still have a lot of fun holiday events to sweeten the season. Be sure to check out the Fireworks and Torchlight Parade, the Nimble Arts Circus Mayhem and our Second Annual Dog Parade!

Looking ahead, we have an USASA Slopestyle Comp and the Dynafit Tour De Moon on January 7th and the USSA B Mogul Comp on January 7th and 8th, all at Mount Ellen. Mount Ellen rocks!

The snow is falling, the turns are good, and there's a spot reserved  for you in the liftline ... better be here!
