Spring made a brief appearance last Saturday and Sunday at Sugarbush – what a weekend! Blue skies, great snow and lots of happy, smiling people making the most of it reminded all of us what a gift skiing and riding in the Spring can be.
It didn’t last for long though, as we’re now reminded of the gift of SNOW! 8” of fresh flakes today marked winter’s return, and it looks like the cool air will stick around at least through the weekend, with Saturday’s forecast being for partly sunny skies with base highs in the mid 20s and summit highs in the low teens. Sunday’s temps look about the same with a few more clouds. For the latest on the weather, click here.
The highlight of last weekend was the Castlerock Extreme. Our legendary double-diamond terrain definitely bared its teeth for the 100 participants - huge bumps, big drops, and big air were the order of the day on Saturday. With play-by-play provided by our own John Egan, the festive atmosphere and a well-organized and expertly-judged event was a blast for all involved. Several Blazer kids and parents participated alongside local devotees, big mountain pros and freestyle teams from around the Northeast, including our own Diamond Dogs from Sugarbush, and teams from other local resorts. Congratulations to all participants! Click here for full results.
Last weekend was also the most adventurous weekend of the year so far for our Blazers. A number of Adventure Blazers took the Long Trail all the way out to the Saddle and skied down the Notch – a rare treat for any die-hard Sugarbush skier. We also had groups below the Church and all the way out into Bear Claw and Paradise Chutes. Everyone definitely earned his or her turns this weekend!
The Blazer BBQ will be on Saturday, March 23 at 3:00 PM. We’ll wrap up our skiing at 2:00 PM, with groups beginning their awards then. Our coaches will be able to tell you specific times and places for you children(s) awards and festivities, please connect with them.
As we’ve done in the past, we’re asking you to assist with the BBQ by bringing sides, desserts or appetizers. Families whose last name begins with a letter from A-M, please bring a covered dish of either an appetizer or a desert. Families whose last name begins with a letter from N-Z, please bring a side dish of choice. If possible, use containers that can be recycled or thrown away, and plan on a portion for approximately 20 people. Please contact Mickey Stone with any questions: email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you this weekend.
Your friends at Sugarbush.
