Seasonal Programs Family Page
Greetings from Sugarbush! With Memorial Day weekend behind us and summer officially kicked-off here in the Mad River Valley, we thought we’d fill you in on all that’s happening around the resort – and there’s a lot going on!
We’re very pleased to announce that Ben Crosby has been appointed the Summer Recreation Programs Coordinator. Many of you know Ben from this past winter in The Schoolhouse, where he was the Mini Bear supervisor. Ben’s got a real gift for helping kids and their families have a blast. Mountain biking for all levels with great coaches, traditional summer camps based at The Schoolhouse, disc golf, hiking, and a wide range of other fun stuff will all be at Ben’s disposal to help you and your family make the most of your summertime adventures here at Sugarbush.
The Sugarbush Resort Golf Club is now in full swing. Even the local moose have been seen snooping around the fairways to see what all the fuss is about on our legendary 60-year-old Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed course. The Club is staffed by many people you’ll recognize from our winter operations, and the smiles on their faces makes clear just how happy they now that it’s so warm and sunny here in the Valley.
New England Tennis Holidays is back at the resort this summer, our mountain bike program is unrivaled among Eastern resorts, the Euro Bungy and Zip Line provide an awesome (albeit fast-moving) view of the surrounding area, the Sugarbush Health and Racquet Club continues to provide top-level training for all of us, and the outdoor pool and hot tub is slated to open there on June 21st. Our farm-to-table vegetable gardens at Timbers are budding already, and the lineup of great events each weekend provides enough variety for every member of the family to have a blast here at Sugarbush.
All of our excitement for the green grass under our feet and warm weather hasn’t stopped the Ski & Ride School from planning for next winter. We’ll be adding some exciting new opportunities for our guests and all of our favorite programs will be largely unchanged. On that note, after four years of dedicated service to the resort, Mickey Stone will no longer be coordinating Blazers for us. We all are grateful to Mickey for his substantial contributions to the Ski & Ride School and wish him well in all of his future endeavors. The Blazer program coaches, Chief Recreation Officer John Egan and Ski & Ride School Director Russ Kauff will be working overtime to make sure that we can pick up for the 2013-14 season right where we left off this year.
We’re all looking forward to sharing the mountains of Sugarbush with you this summer.
