Serious Fun - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, July 31, 2014

We talk a lot about the fun to be had at Sugarbush, but we have a serious side, too. Serious fun, that is. From working with local schools and businesses to supporting a vast array of non-profit partners, community is very important to us and being good citizens is part of our identity. 

Welcome back, High Fives!
Welcome back, High Fives! Their soldout golf tourney returns to the Sugarbush Golf Club on Aug 22nd. 

We are excited to be hosting the 2nd Annual East Coast High Fives Golf Tournament and look forward to sharing some time with local hero turned international philanthropist, Roy Tuscany. Roy grew up in Waterbury and was one of the original Diamond Dog freestyle skiers at Sugarbush, before moving to California. While the event is only in its second year, it has already set a high bar for serious Sugarbush fun.

Join us at the Ride for Ryan Bike Fest next weekend.

We are also supporting another former Diamond Dog's non-profit organization, sponsoring an all ages team of riders for the Ride For Ryan Mountain Bike Fest at Catamount Outdoor Center on August 9th. The Flyin Ryan Foundation has given scholarships to a few recent Diamond Dogs, too. Paying it forward means good things for everyone.

Non-serious summer fun continues to ripen in the bright Green Mountain sunshine. Summer camps and activities have hit their stride, and the local foraging and farm harvests are quite impressive this year. Looking for a little "us" time this weekend? We are hosting one of our famous Kids Pizza and Movie Nights this Saturday, only $25 for food and fun.

While summer is rolling along nicely, fall colors are already starting to appear. These timely reminders to enjoy the season at hand should be taken seriously. The dog days are here, but fleeting.
