Vaguely Vernal - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Happy Vernal Equinox everyone! Sugarbush greeted spring with 4" of new snow this morning and more likely coming in the next day or two. We've had temps below zero this week and probably one more cold snap, before things start to warm up for real.

The potential for more snow next week is strong too, especially at elevation. These wet spring storms sometimes deliver the biggest accumulations of the season, while the valleys are getting rain. Keep an eye on the snow report for up-to-date weather prognostication.

Sweet March!

Spring is also high time for events. Join us for a Nantucket Weekend this Saturday and Sunday, along with the finale of the Seasonal Programs and Sugarbush Patrol tryouts for 2014-2015.

While we have a ton of snow left, Mt. Ellen is getting close to her closing on March 30th. Be sure to get there for some park laps, groomer zooms and tree turns before the lifts stop. We plan to send off Mt. Ellen's 50th season with several fun events, including a Gelandesprung ski jump comp, fireworks and a torchlight parade on March 29th.  

Spring fun.
