Status update for Wed, Sep 28
The chilly mornings and emerging fall foliage have us dreaming about making turns. We usually get our first natural snowfall in a few weeks and we're a month or so away from the scheduled start of snowmaking. Our teams never stop preparing for winter and the mountain is looking ready for our fairest season.
With winter fast approaching, get your 2016-2017 season passes and sign up for our awesome seasonal programs now. Some programs have already sold out. Even with weather challenges last winter, we still had a continuous November to May season, virtually guaranteeing 150+ days of skiing and riding.
We have moved into our fall schedule and scenic lift rides, lift-served mountain biking, bungee trampoline, zipline and other mountain activities are now open on weekends only through Columbus Day. The Sugarbush Golf Club is still open daily and in great condition. Stay in touch with our Sugarbush Summer Report.
The foliage is starting to peak in the higher elevations and is coming along nicely down lower. Daytime temps are still warm and there are plenty of great events throughout the fall. The waves of fall foliage are emerging, upper elevations are ~20% changed. This is prime time for hiking and biking in the Mad River Valley.
We've got weekend gravity-fed lift-served hiking and biking off the Super Bravo Quad, which connects down to an extensive Valley trail network that's open all the time. Check madriverriders.com for details on their 45+ mile network for hiking and biking, including great beginner terrain at Blueberry Lake and a brand new intermediate trail called Evolution in Camel's Hump State Forest.
The Sugarbush Health and Recreation Center has plenty of fun to offer with our outdoor pool, tennis courts, fitness classes, hot tub and sauna, and more.
