Sweet Slide

Thursday, August 25, 2011

From the golf course to the bike trails, momentum is a huge part of many of the sports that we play. Momentum is generally measured as mass times velocity, so the bigger you are or faster you go, the more you have.

(re)Building momentum. Sharing bridge repairs between the Catamount Trail, Mad River Path and Mad River Riders. Location: Catamount Trail, between Sugar Run and German Flats Rd.

After many years of slower growth, trail collaborations around the Valley and the region have begun to yield big results. For instance, the US Forest Service recently announced a plan to build five miles of beginner and intermediate bike trails with the Mad River Riders/VMBA around Warren's Blueberry Lake in the Green Mountain National Forest. The project is set to start in spring of 2012!

One of the extra benefits of trail building, first dibs on junk!

As summer turns to fall, the Valley's trails also experience a peak. From river edge to mountain ridge, there is no better way to check out foliage than to visit one of our awesome trails.

Remember to clean up after the pooch!

The bright party of late summer and early autumn has already started, and every passing day inches us closer to winter.

Many thanks to our summer coaches! Staff party at Egan's Terrain Park.

Speaking of winter, it is time to start planning for it in earnest. While the days are plenty warm and it is comfortable to sleep with the windows open still, we usually get our first snow about six weeks from now.

Keep the momentum flowing ... get your 2011-2012 season passes and programs now!

Just a dusting overnight.

Sugarbush has developed a new pass this year, designed to keep 20 somethings in the game. This age group shows a tremendous drop-off in ski/ride participation and our ForTwenties pass for $299 is already making great headway in retaining these folks just starting careers and families.

Want to make some turns? Egan leads the way.

Come celebrate the slow sweet slide out of summer this weekend. We hope to see you soon!
