Winter 2017-2018 is off to a very fresh start and only looks to improve, at least in the near term. Between today's new snow, tomorrow's winter weather advisory and continuing chances for wintery accumulations next week, we're building natural and snowmaking bases to record levels for this time of year.
Gnome man's land.
While the cold has kept some folks off the mountain, with the proper attitude and clothing, the turns are very tasty. In fact, the traffic levels have left quiet places like Castlerock and Lower FIS in remarkably great condition for days on end. Speaking of Lower FIS, tomorrow January 4th is the 1st $30 Thursday of the season at Mt. Ellen.
Low angle clean woods are getting good too. Still some powder hiding out there and more on the way.

Happy New Year from Sugarbush!
Tour De Moon at Walt's last weekend was super fun.
For those who aren't familiar, Tour De Moon is a night time hike/skin to Walt's for a moon lit party. We started it 10 years ago and it has built into quite a popular after-hours event. Walt's was packed on Saturday evening and the ski down was magical under the supermoon. Join us for the next Tour De Moon on February 3rd.
Saturday, holiday week, uncrowded and still fresh, just have to know where to go.
Sammy always nails the most important turn of the day.
She's pretty good with the other turns too. Shining on Morning Star.
Heading out for a shoe at Lincoln Peak. We have lots of guided snowshoe tours too.
Apres superstars at the Wunderbar!
Thank you for 14 years of fun and food at Sugarbush, Gary!
We're in the middle of one of the best beginnings winter has ever shown us at Sugarbush. The "winter hurricane" forecast for next few days may make things challenging for lifts and exposed skin, but the snow is only piling up and the turns are just getting sweeter. Better be here.
