Into Our New Courtyard

This weekend is our 9th annual Brew-Grass Festival featuring over 20 Vermont craft beers, some good local food, and entertainment. This will be the first major event in our newly renovated Lincoln Peak Courtyard. While it is not finished entirely, one will be able to get a great feel for what it will be. There are now so many different events that we can have here throughout the year. We’ve installed a new gas firepit near Castlerock Pub and are getting two new mobile wood firepits as well. The redone center garden and wall will be a great place to sit après and soak in the sun. And the good news is that this weekend is the perfect chance to do just that, as it looks warm and sunny for a change. Tickets for Brew-Grass are limited but we do have a few remaining, so don’t procrastinate much longer or you may miss out on this fun summer event.
This week is the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Our Culinary Director, Gerry Nooney, will be missing Brew-Fest this weekend in order to attend the celebration at Normandy because his son Christian, who is still active duty in the army, has been selected to participate by parachuting from one of the vintage planes. It is quite an honor and hopefully Gerry will be sending some good photos back.
With the weather finally changing for the better, our golf course will be playing very well, and this weekend should be a nice time to get out for a round or two. I certainly plan to. Up on the mountain our team is also preparing to get all summer activities in full swing for opening weekend on June 22nd. They are currently very busy with summer maintenance and while our focus has turned to warmer activities, they are already prepping for next winter.
This past week we signed a contract on another Gadd Brook home, so now only 4 three-bedroom homes remain, and these will likely be the last new ski-in and ski-out homes to be built at Lincoln Peak. If you have an interest, Kyle Neyer at Sugarbush Real Estate is the person to contact at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-496-4000.
While our ski season came to an end on the 5th of May, it was great to see our neighbor to the South, Killington, ski into June. But I am amazed to see how many Western resorts are still open and planning to be until mid-July and even August. I may just have to hop a plane for a quick day or two of skiing to reach my goal of 150 days. I am two days short. That is something I guess I may decide after a beer or two this weekend.
