Hello Seasonal Program participants and families:
We've had a few beautiful spring days this week with plenty more to come. The sun feels warm but the air has that frosty bite that both invigorates and refreshes. As I look at the mountain, I shake my head in disbelief that our seasonal programs have concluded for the year. Our final weekend felt like mid-January and with 4-6 inches of fresh powder on Sunday morning; conditions could not have been better.
I would like to thank all of you for a super successful season and it was wonderful to see so many of you at the BBQ lunch on Sunday. The side dishes and desserts were outstanding and showed a lot of creativity! Roasted veggie salad, strawberry and spinach salad, yummy cookies, ice cream and even Sugarbush Moose cupcakes! Thank you for supporting your kids and coaches so wholeheartedly.
We had 60+ kids and parents participate in the fun race. Thank you again for being so sporting about joining in. Kids love to race against their parents! Unfortunately, the race department encountered a damaged cable that took the timing system offline that morning. Because we were unable to determine a winning team by time, we instead drew participant names from a hat to award prizes. We will notify those winners individually, but congratulations to all who participated and let their skis fly across the finish line!
Our SkiMos participated in the Mad River Valley Mountaineering race on Sunday, making excellent improvements over last year and turning in some impressive times. The group was recently featured in the February issue of Back Country Magazine, so pick up a copy and check out the 'New-School Ski Mountaineers' if you haven't already done so.
We are already turning our thoughts to next season and we will make program information available as soon as possible. We will also be sending you a brief survey to fill out on your experience later this week. All feedback is appreciated. In the meantime, we hope you will join us for Pond Skimming and Easter Weekend celebrations. There is still plenty of skiing and riding to be enjoyed at Sugarbush!
With best wishes for a healthy and happy spring and summer,
Seasonal Programs Manager
