What's New at Sugarbush for 2010/11

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Opening WeekYou may have noticed some changes up here at Sugarbush lately. We unveiled a new look for our website several weeks ago. We began making snow with our upgraded snowmaking system, which includes over 2 miles of snowmaking pipe, 80 new high-efficiency mobile Ratnik nozzles, and as we work our way down the mountain, we'll debut our new high-efficient HKD guns on Spring Fling. These $2.5 million in snowmaking improvements will allow us to make 30-40% more snow at ideal temps with the same amount of energy. Next week we'll celebrate the official opening of our two new skier services buildings. And today, we're introducing a modification to our monthly Mountain Views letter. Sign up here  if you haven't already. I'll be sharing a few of my own thoughts with you in the introduction of Mountain Views, and then John Atkinson will step in to apprise you of what you have to look forward to for the upcoming month.

We've been open since Thanksgiving Day, I've already logged seven days of skiing on my season pass (that includes one pre-opening conditions check), and this weekend promises cold temperatures that will allow us to really ratched up our snowmaking.

Welcome to Winter!
