We've had a bittersweet week at Sugarbush, with some fresh snow early and then back into the freezer for the last few days. This pattern seems to be changing though, and the weekend promises comfortable temps and some accumulating snow. Don't look too closely at next week yet, unless you want to get really excited.
The turns have been great throughout this current winter phase, thanks mainly to our groomers and snowmakers. We are hoping Mother Nature will start to work a little harder, Castlerock and the off-piste are desperate for some company.
Groovy groomers this week.
The weather and snow weren't the only things that were bittersweet. Unfortunately, we lost two members of greater Mad River Valley community this week, too.
Not many people know that Pete Seeger was a skier or that he occasionally showed up at our neighbor's doorstep for some runs. With songs like "Turn Turn Turn" and "Snow, Snow", it may seem obvious in retrospect. Thankfully, he leaves a legacy that will likely last a long time.
Nice turns, Pete!
We also said goodbye to Greg Polanski, a long time Sugarbush skier with a heart of gold. He was a firefighter in Meridien, CT, who came up with his family and friends nearly every weekend. Be sure to make a turn turn turn for both of these amazing people. If the snow starts to dump in earnest now, you know who to thank, too.

The temps are tempering, the snow is moving towards us and the fun is all but guaranteed. See you on the mountain!
