It has just been announced that Arapahoe Basin, formerly part of the Epic Pass, will now be joining both the Mountain Collective and the Ikon Pass partnerships.

Keeping Cool

There are many reasons why I love and appreciate living here in the Mad River Valley but this past week when it was hot, hazy and humid it reminded me of several of them.  Growing up in New York City I remember my youthful days prior to air conditioning when we would open all the windows and hope that our fans would create enough breeze to cool things enough to get some sleep...

Staying Active With a Toddler

My daughter, Aspen – named for her Fanny Gran’s love of the tree, not the ski resort -- just turned two years old.  Or as she says, “I two. More pupcake, Mama.”  Meaning, she wants to eat more cupcakes.  Unlike last year’s first birthday experience in which she wanted nothing to do with her cake and candle, this birthday she gobbled it up...

A Busy July 4th

Was it because the Fourth of July fell on a Thursday or because the weather was spectacular that the Valley was rocking last week? Maybe it was both. More people parked their cars in our parking lot and rode the buses down to Warren. In fact, nearly 1,800 people hitched a ride on the bus on July 4th...

Rock and Rolls

Our July 4th Float

Ah, the Warren 4th of July Parade: a time of celebration, camaraderie, and a fair amount of political floats. It's a ton of fun for those of you who haven't been before, and for those of you that have you know that Sugarbush puts on a float every year. We've spanned a variety of themes in recent years, from Wizard of Oz to football to 60 years of history, but this year our theme is "Freedom to Explore"...

Summer Solstice

One of the most depressing days of the summer to some is this Friday, the summer solstice.  We eagerly await summer after the dark winter days and often wet and cool spring ones, and then it arrives with the longest day of the year.  So just after we get to 6/21, the daylight hours already start to get shorter...
