Last week we saw all four seasons. After a fabulous sunny day on Friday, we returned to snow on Saturday. Then on Easter Sunday, we had warm temperatures and a mostly cloudy day with really nice soft corn snow. It was day 125 for me and my final run of the season was down Ripcord. It was a fitting end.
I say "final run" for me because business and pleasure are going to keep me away the next two weekends. But it won't be final for many of you because we are planning to reopen on Saturday, April 30th, for the weekend and we will see if conditions allow us to open the following weekend, too. Of course, I am hoping that we might have to open on the 14th when I am back so that I can get to 126 or 127 days. Skiing and golf on the same day could be a perfect way to enjoy Sugarbush.
In case I don't see you on the slopes again this spring, let me say thanks to all of you and to Team Sugarbush for a fabulous season.
Do remember that May 4th is the last day to get the cheapest season passes for next winter at Sugarbush.
So what would you expect a former Executive Vice President of Merrill Lynch to do when he retires? Lay low in the islands? Nope. He moves north and works seven days a week right here at Sugarbush. Check out what he's been thinking.
