  • John Egan is more than a famous Warren Miller film star, he is a gifted coach and an exceptional mountain guide, and his Bush Pilots is the best way to get access to the goods on our mountain. Bush Pilot coaches under Egan’s leadership include the members of the VT North Pro Team, a remarkable group of international big mountain pros who proudly to call the Mad River Valley home, verifying Egan’s credo that "If you can ski here, you can ski anywhere". With a program that takes full advantage of Sugarbush's incomparable big-mountain terrain, even the most world-traveled expert skiers enjoy using Bush Pilots to get ready for their next skiing adventure, whether it's across the Valley or across the globe.

    Bush Pilots participants must be expert skiers of 18+ years in good physical condition who ski aggressively on black diamond or double black diamond terrain. This group is fast-paced and demanding, with lift-rides often being the only reprieve. Bush Pilots must have a Sugarbush All Mountain Pass and are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible so as not to miss out on any adventures or guest coaches.

    As group interest dictates, additional early morning or late afternoon adventures may be planned. Participants should be well equipped with fat skis, good bindings (alpine, AT, or telemark) and should seriously consider backpacks with food, water, backcountry gear, and extra layers.

    Maximum 28 participants.
