What a fantastic weekend we just had at Sugarbush. The weather and conditions set us up for total exploration and enjoyment. The Blazers were ripping it up out there!

Many of our groups enjoyed woods trails and tours into the Slide Brook Basin. Bear Claw, the Wedding Trail, Gangstas’ Grotto, Lew’s Line, and Egan’s Woods were just some of the fun places they found. We had three Outback Guides escorting groups into the Slide Brook Basin on Sunday and they were in high demand all day.

The main event of the weekend was the Castlerock Extreme Challenge on Saturday, and the marquis event of the Ski The East Freeride Tour didn’t disappoint. Several members of the Diamond Dogs Freestyle Team had a blast participating, including Head Coach Joey “Flat Spin” Normandeau, and all were excited to see former teammate S.J. Grundon win the women’s division. Way to go, S.J.!

Next weekend we will be offering our last snowboarding session for Snow and Adventure Blazers. We have been really excited about the interest in learning to ride and will be giving first priority to groups who have not yet had the chance to participate. Look for more snowboarding opportunities next season.

Speaking of next season, it is hard to believe that the Seasonal Programs are drawing to a close. The final weekend will be March 22nd and 23rd. We will be hosting a Blazer BBQ on Saturday, March 22nd at 3:00 PM. Groups will come off the mountain around 2:00 PM for awards and festivities. Times will vary slightly so please check with your child’s coach for details.

We are asking families to assist with the BBQ by bringing appetizers, sides, and desserts. Families with last names beginning A – M, please bring a covered side dish. Families with last names beginning N – Z, please bring an appetizer or dessert. Where possible, please use containers that can be recycled or thrown away and plan on a portion for approximately 15 to 20 people.

We will be providing burgers, hot dogs, buns, and fixings as well as water and soda. There will be a cash bar set up, weather permitting. If you have any questions about the BBQ, please contact me at jwilkinson@sugarbush.com.

We’ve picked up 5” of snow in the last 48 hours, and the forecast has got us all dancing as we anticipate 12 to 24” of snow Wednesday and Thursday. It is shaping up to be a great weekend. One you won’t want to miss.

Enjoy the rest of your week and we’ll see you in the powder real soon.
