Warren, VT (January 21, 2016) – Sugarbush Resort announced this past Tuesday that it is 100% open.  With 111 trails and 484 acres of skiable terrain, Sugarbush has the most open terrain in the East.                  

The resort has received a combination of steady snowfall and cold snow-making temperatures over the last few weeks which has allowed ropes to continue dropping. The resort received over a foot of natural snow in the last week alone.

Castlerock Chair at Lincoln Peak, which accesses an area offering all-natural snow terrain for experts only, began spinning for the public on Tuesday. And Slide Brook Express, the chairlift that connects Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen, will open to the public Friday, Jan. 22nd.  The opening of Castlerock and Slide Brook Express are emblematic of good natural snow conditions.

In addition to the 484 acres of skiable terrain at the resort, there are another 97 acres of wooded terrain available, as well as Slide Brook Basin--a 2,000 acre wilderness area located between Sugarbush’s two mountains.

The resort is offering an assortment of unique ski and ride experiences in the next few weeks, primed to take advantage of the conditions. Women’s Discovery Camp is a 2 ½ day camp for intermediate and advanced women, taking place January 29th-31st and again March 7th-9th.  Essential Elements programs are mini-seasonal programs for adults that take place over four consecutive Saturdays: Black Diamond Club is for expert alpine and telemark skiers, beginning Feb. 13th; and All-Mountain Riders, a program for advanced snowboarders, beginning February 6th.
