Sugarbush Hosts Island Weekend and The Grift


Warren, VT (March 8, 2016) – Sugarbush Resort hosts Island Weekend this Friday, March 11th – Sunday, March 13th.  Island fever takes over Sugarbush as spring skiing conditions arrive with beach music, food specials, and mountain activities.

Saturday features a Beach Party in the Lincoln Peak Courtyard from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. The party includes a live DJ with beach-themed music like Jimmy Buffet and various reggae artists. Volleyball, snowcastles (weather permitting), pink flamingos, and palm trees will dot the courtyard along with a Tiki Bar. The Tiki Bar will feature wood-fired pizza, an island-inspired cocktail, and Narraganset beer.

Saturday night is highlighted by the Nantucket Dining Experience at Allyn’s Lodge. Guests can ride the Cabin Cat to the top of Gadd Peak for a candle-lit gourmet feast in Allyn’s Lodge, as Chef Jim Dinan prepares a Nantucket-inspired dinner paired with wines chosen by Nantucket Wine Festival. Those wishing to make the strenuous hour plus skin or snowshoe trip up to Allyn’s Lodge instead of taking the cabin cat can do that as well. The event is $200 per person. Also on Saturday night, Castlerock Pub is hosting The Grift, from 9:00 PM – midnight.

Dining specials will be available throughout the weekend (while supplies last), offering flavors like mango and jerk seasonings, and fresh clam pizza. Castlerock Pub is serving Cape Cod oysters during Friday Night Raw Bar, accompanied by a special firkin of beer for Firkin Friday.
