Mountain Views: Fact, April is the Best Ski Month
I'll admit I'm a little behind Win on my ski days. I got distracted enjoying the Olympics too much and what a wild few Olympic weeks! My curling knowledge has increased exponentially, especially considering the U.S. snagged a gold medal in the team event. But as the Olympics fade from memory and the Paralympics begin, I'm reminded of all the great adaptive sports partners that we work with here at Sugarbush, all of whom will be quite active this month.

Mountain Views - Proudly Independent
When you stop and think about it, independence is a theme that makes a lot of sense not just for Sugarbush, but the Mad River Valley as well.
