Snow Report

Status update for Wed, Mar 29

1:30 PM

After a cloudy start to the day, we are beginning to see some flurries in the air. The mountain has firmed up some with the temperature drop. We're expecting a bit of snow overnight, and sunshine by tomorrow afternoon with temps in the 30s. Friday's forecast is calling for several inches of snow.

We are back to 100% open with 11 scheduled lifts between both peaks. The best turns will be found on our 41 groomed trails, including Spring Fling and Ripcord. For freestyle fun, checkout Sugarbush Parks 19 snow hits on Slowpoke, 42 advance features on Riemergasse, & rowdy banked slalom course through Sugar Run. 

GMX is set to spin at 8 AM. All other lifts open at 9 AM, except Slide Brook Express, which operates 10 AM - 3:15 PM. The Mad Bus provides free shuttles between both base areas and throughout the Mad River Valley, until April 2nd. 

North Ridge Express will not reopen this season. Mt. Ellen passholders are invited to ski and ride at Lincoln Peak for the rest of the season. As we prepare for the addition of a new Village Quad for Winter 17/18, the Village Double is currently being disassembled. If you are not quite ready for Gate House, beginners should head to the Sunny D lift and Lower Crackerjack for longer, gentle runs.

This weekend is full of events to help celebrate the end of another great season at Mt. Ellen. Show off your long distance jumping skills on the Gelande. Enjoy live apres music & congratulate John Egan on his Hall of Fame induction at a party in Castlerock Pub. 

Get your 2017-2018 season passes now at the lowest prices of the year and enjoy lift access for the rest of the 2016-2017 season. Don't forget to use up those Quad Pack tickets before it's too late! 

Be better informed with the Sugarbush App for both Apple and Android devices. Uphill travel is permitted on designated routes. Review the Skier Responsibility code for a safe season of adventure.

Sugarbush ... be better here.

Wooded areas between open trails are not patrolled and have no skier/snowboarder services. If you ski/snowboard in wooded areas, you are solely responsible for yourself. Enter and exit only from marked open trails. You should be an expert skier/snowboarder. Do not ski/ride alone. Unmarked obstacles exist throughout.

If you ski/ride in areas other than open and designated trails, you are voluntarily accepting additional responsibility for injury or death. When you enter areas between or outside designated trails, you have entered the unknown. These areas are not maintained or patrolled. You are assuming risks that may include getting lost or suffering other harm or injury.
