Sneak Peak - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, September 27, 2012

If anyone is wondering when is the best time to see the foliage this year, it is right now! Granted, not every single leaf has changed yet, but it is hard to argue against the incredible beauty covering the hills and mountains. Sometimes, you have to blink to make sure you're not dreaming.

Driving, biking, golfing and even hiking can actually be dangerous this time of year, based solely on the views. Unfortunately, it is very easy to get distracted with the electricolor trees, hyperwatt sunshine and killa-joule sky.

If confronted with an overwhelming vista, your best bet is to just stop and soak it up for a while. The only problem with this technique is you may not get very far, because around every corner is another arrestingly gorgeous view. 

We've still got a ton of fun to share this fall, but you better get on it. There are only two more weekends of lift-served biking and mountain activities, and the golf course will stay open later into October, weather-permitting. Be sure to join us for Community Day next weekend!

After what seemed like an endless summer, it feels a little strange to be rolling right into glorious fall and already thinking deeply about winter. Mmmm, deep winter. Has anyone started their snow dances yet? We've been jigging a little to get the mojo flowing, but will kick into full disco-mode as soon as the lifts stop on Columbus Day.

Sugarbush's projected winter Opening Day is only 51 sunrises away. If you haven't got your passes or programs yet, now is a good time to check these tasks off the list.

Before we get ahead of ourselves though, come enjoy the Mad River Valley's fall harvest bounty and sample some of the tastiest Green Mountain views. Peak autumn is a small window. If you miss it, you'll have to wait another whole year to catch it again.
