Snow Report

Status update for Thu, Mar 30

1:38 PM

Join us for the last $30 Thursday of the season at Mt. Ellen. Temps are warming into the 20s and 30s under sunny skies. Start making plans now to call in sick Friday. Better be here to enjoy the 8-12" predicted for tomorrow through Saturday. 

Sugarbush's 111 legendary trails are 100% open, served by 11 scheduled lifts. The best turns have been on groomed lower mountain south-facing areas like Gatehouse, North Lynx, Inverness and Sunny D. 

The groomers are ramping up for the weekend, with 47 trails on the list for tonight, including Rim Run and Birdland. For freestyle fun, check out Sugarbush Parks 19 snow hits on Slowpoke, 42 advance features on Riemergasse, & a banked slalom track on Sugar Run. The off-piste should be firm today, but begin to soften as new snow falls tomorrow.

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

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. North Ridge Express will not re-open before Sunday, Mt. Ellen passholders are invited to ski and ride for the rest of the 16/17 season at Lincoln Peak. 

The spring event season is in high gear. Raise a toast at John Egan's US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame induction celebration on Saturday in the Castlerock Pub. This is Mt. Ellen's final weekend of lift operations. Show off your long distance jumping skills on Saturday at the Gelandesprung and rock out at Sunday's apres celebration in the Green Mountain Lounge, hosted by the mighty Detonators.

Get the lowest prices on your 2017-2018 season passes now and enjoy lift access for the rest of the 2016-2017 season. Daily lift operations run through April 23rd at Lincoln Peak, with the potential for another weekend to May 1st, remember to use your 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.
