"Which month is it?" A smiling skier asked me as he came off the hill yesterday. After 20 feet of snow and hardly a melt, the depth on the mountain is still incredible and this weekend we enjoyed sunny skies and temperatures reaching into the 50s.

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.

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.

It is really exciting to see a moose, and we have seen our share of them at Sugarbush in the past few years. As fun as it is to see one, please remember that they are huge animals and can be dangerous. It is important to give them a wide berth and never come between a calf and a mother.

When I attended Deerfield Academy, our Headmaster, Frank Boyden, drilled into us to never pass by litter without picking it up. I have always been appalled by littering, especially when it comes to our beautiful mountain. I have historically seen a lot less litter here at Sugarbush than at many mountains, and I think that is due to the respect that most people have for this Valley.
