Up and Down - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, December 6, 2012

This week has been a bit of a weather roller coaster, with cold temps and fresh snow sandwiching a few warm days. We had a full reset on natural snow, but as you can see from the pictures today, we got a nice coating last night. The guns are running full throttle too, and the turns were really silky, deep and fun this morning.

Frankly, the change wrought by mother nature and our mountain ops team is dramatic. Yesterday, we were carving corn snow and hopping over patches. Today, we are skiing and riding fresh powdery machine-made, with great cover in most places. 

The weekend outlook is on the edge for snowmaking temps, but we are likely to see soft surfaces all over the mountain. Plus, this Saturday is the Sugarbash, our annual birthday celebration, complete with retro outfits, live music from The Grift, great prizes and more. Help us ring in our 54th season!

If you around on Monday, be sure to check out the Taste of Timber's for a free preview of our winter menu. Food and fun? Sounds like a plan.

Winter may be up and down, but the fun never stops here at Sugarbush. We hope to see you soon.
