Seasonal Programs Family Page
Greetings from Sugarbush! We hope you don’t mind interrupting your summer for a little preview of the upcoming winter season. We’d like to fill you in on some changes we’re making to our seasonal kids programs that are designed to enable us to deliver better, more consistent learning experiences for all of our participants.
With our seasonal program kids improving rapidly and gaining access to more and more of Sugarbush’s legendary terrain, the distinction between some of our programs has become blurred, making your choices as parents more difficult. With this in mind, for the 2014-15 season we’ve reengineered our seasonal offerings to make the choices simpler and clearer for you and your family.
The biggest change you’ll find this August is that we’ve combined Snow Blazers and Adventure Blazers and there is now one price applicable for the newly-merged Adventure Blazers, Mini-Blazers, and the Diamond Dogs Development Team. Micro Blazers now includes all 4-year-olds (previously in Mini Blazers) and is based out of the Schoolhouse, and Mini Blazers no longer includes a half-day option.
The new single rate for Adventure Blazers, Mini Blazers, and Diamond Dogs Development Team is $1399 if purchased between August 4 and September 10, 2014 and $1599 if purchased thereafter. The full day rate for Micro Blazers is $1499 and includes lunch. The half day rate for Micro Blazers is $1139 through September 10, 2014 and $1699 and $1339 thereafter.
New for 2014-15, we will be introducing a heavily discounted 18-day pre-purchase option for our Schoolhouse programs for kids ages 5 and older with no date restrictions. Available for sale only August 4th through October 31st, the cost of the 18-day Schoolhouse pass is $1399 and includes lunch. For those of you who aren’t able to take advantage of as many days of Blazers as you’d like and prefer to have the flexibility of including some holiday weekdays, the 18-day Schoolhouse package will be a terrific option.
We are also offering a 18-day pre-purchase option for Micro Bears at the same rate as the full and half day options for Micro Blazers.
In another exciting addition, we are expanding the optional sessions for Adventure Blazers that were introduced last season. This year, you will have the opportunity to register your child for racing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and cross country clinics as part of their Adventure Blazer experience. These clinics are offered at no additional charge (with the exception of cross country) and we have discounted rates on any required rental equipment.
In order to bring Mountaineering Blazers up to date with the explosion of interest in backcountry skiing nationwide, we are changing the name of the program to “Sugarbush Ski Mountaineers”. The program will begin on the same date as our other programs, December 13, 2014, and the early purchase rate remains at $2009 for the season.
The Sugarbush Resort Golf Club is in full swing, our summer camp and mountain biking programs are rolling, and though everyone is enjoying a fun summer of outdoor activity here in the Mad River Valley, we’re all looking forward to sharing the mountains of Sugarbush with you again this winter. All of our programs will officially be on sale August 4, but don't hesitate to reach out with any questions before then.
We look forward to hearing from you and to seeing you back at Sugarbush. And now, back to summer!
