**7/23/16 4:30 PM due to Thunder & Lightning Summer Operations are closed for the day**
The big story this week is the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival, hosted by the Mad River Riders, the Vermont Mountain Bike Association and Sugarbush, July 22nd - 24th at Mt. Ellen! To kick off the Fest in style on Friday evening, Long Trail has created 2 casks of Double Galaxy Limbo IPA just for the event, plus there will be a fun corn hole tournament. We'll have guided rides for all abilities throughout the Valley, tons of awesome demos and vendors, a tasty bbq and the Big Basin Band on Saturday, a brand new intermediate flow trail in Camel's Hump State Forest that opens Friday, the free Nooney Hillclimb Comp and shuttle buses on Friday and Saturday to get you to the best trailheads and back to the fest site.
In summer mountain operations, Sugarbush Parks master Trevor Borelli has been using his shaping knowledge to help clean up favorite routes like Grand Stand and Big Birch. We've got 33 trails of lift-served biking on Super Bravo, which connects down to an extensive Valley trail network. Check out madriverriders.com for details on their 45+ mile network for hiking and biking.
The Sugarbush Golf Club is in great shape. This season, the greens crew completed extensive improvements on #2 and #17, and upgraded the cart paths throughout the course. According to those in the know (aka Sheldon), "the course is in the best condition it's ever been."
We have great events throughout the summer including the upcoming Vermont Music Fest. Check out $30 Thursdays for our best golf deal and there are tasty weekly food specials like 50% off food at Timbers on Mondays, Toss 'Em Tuesdays, Raw Bar & Crab Shack Wednesdays, 50% off wine at Timbers on Thursdays, Rib Night at Hogan's on Fridays and Wood Fired Pizza at Hogan's on Saturdays.
The Sugarbush Health and Recreation Center also has plenty of fun to offer with their outdoor pool, tennis courts, fitness classes, hot tub and sauna, and more.
Sign up for our famous summer kids' camps, including Mini-Adventure Camp, Junior Golf and Tennis Camps and Mountain Bike Adventure Camp.
Please note that the Route 100 bridge by American Flatbread will be closed June 19th - July 24th. You can detour via Sugarbush Access Road, German Flats Road and Route 17. Guests who are traveling to Sugarbush via exit 10 in Waterbury, please be advised there will be traffic delays in the Stowe Street area through Wednesday, July 20th.
