Status update for Sun, Jan 22
Keep rocking your snow dances. We're in for a classic New England mixed storm cycle this week that may stay mainly frozen at our elevations. The turns should be buttery to start, with temps in the mid-30s, cooling this afternoon, accompanied by rising chance of precipitation. We are reportedly above the clouds at the summits again this morning.
Expect sweet early runs on 52 groomed trails for all abilities. Natural snow terrain will be variable, with well-traveled areas likely holding the best conditions. Be wary of hidden obstacles, thin cover and slick spots.
Sugarbush Parks has 77 progression-friendly freestyle features. Start with Easy Rider's 7 beginner boxes and Slow Poke's 9 snow hits. Tap into Sugar Run's 14 intermediate features and put the pedal to the metal on Riemergasse's 47 advanced skate-style sets. We are also hosting the Northern Vermont Series USASA freestyle rail jam on a competition feature garden behind the Mt. Ellen base lodge this morning.
GMX at Mt. Ellen, plus Super Bravo and Heaven's Gate at Lincoln Peak are scheduled at 8 AM. All other lifts start at 9 AM. Snow cover is too thin at the lowest elevations under Slide Brook lift to safely operate, although that may change by mid-week. The Mad Bus provides free daily shuttles between both base areas and around town.
Be better informed with the Sugarbush App for both Apple and Android. Our webcams are a great way to check lift lines & summit snowfall updates too. The summit snow stake is at ~3900 ft and cleared daily at 3:45 PM. 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.
