A Wrap on Winter

Monday, May 18, 2015

After 158 days, our ski season finally ended with two great weekend days.  Several thousand guests enjoyed our seventeen open trails, including Stein's.  We also were able to open all 18 holes at the golf course, sufficiently dried out to even allow carts.  While our neighbor to the South is still skiing, the remaining three other resorts in Vermont and Maine ended the same week we did.  It really was a great season and all of us at Sugarbush thank you for your continued support and loyalty.

A Bittersweet Spring

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

As I have said before, spring, for me, is bittersweet. The skiing has been really good, but the forecast is looking warmer, and the sun will begin stripping the slopes and greening up the golf course.

Friday, April 3, 2015

The end of March is always a bittersweet time for me, and it is symbolized by our annual pond skimming.  It is sweet if you get over, and bitter if you do not. I was fortunate to get across this year, with room to spare.

Reckless Skiing

Thursday, March 26, 2015

In recent weeks, we have received complaints from first-time as well as veteran skiers about reckless skiers and riders. Some have complained of near-misses, and others of being hit by another skier or boarder. The vast majority of our skiers and riders adhere to the Skier Responsibility Code. And over the years, we have had very few reported collision injuries. This winter is no different. However, the complaints from guests are more frequent, and we are taking them seriously.
