Summer Activities are Up and Running

Monday, June 30, 2014

Well, summer is officially here and the good or bad news is that the days start getting shorter. I enjoy the early morning light, so I can wake up to a view of the Sugarbush ridgeline from my home in East Warren. And I definitely enjoy the light well after 9:00 PM. With summer here, all of our summer activities at Sugarbush are up and running. Summer in the mountains doesn't last that long, so you definitely want to take advantage of July and August here in the Valley. Right after Labor Day the leaves begin to show their color, if not prior, and before too long our thoughts will be on another ski season.

Exploring Culture in the Valley

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

When I first visited the Mad River Valley, I came entirely to ski (and maybe to apres ski, as well).  I later learned there were many more recreational opportunities in the summer, and I began playing the golf course and sampling the many hiking trails.

Two Final Days of a Great Season

Thursday, May 1, 2014

As the annual National Ski Area Association convention is this week, Lili and I enjoyed our final day on the slopes last Friday and took one beautiful final run down Spring Fling.  It was amazing to see the depth of the snow that we still had here in late April.  While we closed for the last week of April, we will reopen this weekend for two final runs of the season at Sugarbush.

Sunday Was One of the Best

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

I hope that all of you enjoyed the Passover and Easter holidays. Lili and I were thrilled to have three of our children with us for the weekend as well as a few of their friends from Boston. We enjoyed some great skiing and riding on the slopes as well as a delicious Easter buffet at Timbers. I think that Sunday was one of the nicest spring skiing days that I have ever enjoyed here at Sugarbush. It began with a ride up Bravo in time to get to "Rev's" annual non-denominational Easter service at Allyn's Lodge.
