As a resort we continue to look for ways to improve the guest experience. Here’s what’s new at Sugarbush for the 2018/19 winter season.
60th Anniversary Celebration:
This season Sugarbush is celebrating its 60th anniversary since Damon and Sarah Gadd, along with Jack Murphy, first started spinning the lifts on December 25th, 1958. Expect a full calendar of events and activities celebrating the rich history of Sugarbush from its old “Mascara Mountain” days to now including Six Decades of Sugarbush Music, Employee Alumni and Legends Weekend, Gondola Design Contest, Sugarbush Memorabilia Expo, 60th Anniversary Film Fest Weekend, and much more.
Sugarbush has joined the new Ikon Pass for the 2018/19 season, connecting the most iconic mountains in North America and delivering authentic, memorable snow adventures. The Ikon Pass provides unlimited access to 12 destinations plus seven days combined at 13 other destinations, including Sugarbush, with zero blackout dates. There’s also an Ikon Base Pass option with unlimited access to 10 destinations and five days of access at 15 destinations, with blackouts.
The resort has invested in a number of other projects to improve the guest experience. These include: new snowmaking pipe on Mt. Ellen’s Straight Shot, new snowmaking pump house at Mt. Ellen, new roofs on the Valley House and Glen House, new drive system, brakes, and communications line for the North Lynx Triple, and relocation of the beginner First Time carpet lift for more convenient access.
