OUTBACK & MEET-THE-MOUNTAIN TOURS
Take a guided ski, ride or snowshoe tour of the Slide Brook Basin, a remote 2,000-acre wilderness area between Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen. Or for those just getting to know Sugarbush, take one of the FREE Meet-the-Mountain Tours that leave daily from the Guest Services Desk at each mountain.
During the ski season a courtesy shuttle, known locally as the Mad Bus, operates a continuous loop between the two mountains at Sugarbush, as well as routes to locations within the Mad River Valley.
