Sugarbush Offers Free Skiing to Furloughed Federal Employees


Warren, VT (January 22, 2019) – Sugarbush Resort is offering federal employees affected by the government shutdown free skiing and riding while the government remains shut down. Any federal employee furloughed or working without pay may show their federal ID and an official letter stating that they are not getting paid in exchange for a free Adult All Mountain lift ticket (does not include $5 RFID). The deal extends to a federal employee’s immediate family.

“Not receiving a paycheck for nearly four weeks is a huge burden for families,” said Win Smith, President of Sugarbush Resort. “We certainly hope that our representatives in Washington can reach a compromise soon and get everyone back to work. In the meantime, we wanted to offer those on furlough and their families an opportunity to enjoy the camaraderie of skiing and riding especially when conditions are so nice.”

In addition to Sugarbush, Mad River Glen is also offering free midweek tickets to furloughed federal employees, giving those employees skiing options at both resorts in the Mad River Valley.

This offer expires when the federal government shutdown ends and is not valid on holidays. There are no refunds for previously purchased products. For more information visit or call 1-800-53-SUGAR.
