Warren, VT (October 4, 2016) – Sugarbush Resort has been ramping up its commitment to employee health and wellness in recent years. Two years ago, the resort established a Health and Wellness Committee, inviting employees to have a voice in increasing the company’s commitment to personal health and wellness and environmental awareness. The resort has also taken a lead in encouraging and supporting athletic events that promote employee personal wellness.

Here’s a recent look at resort employee athletic endeavors:

Sugarbush sent 42 employees to participate in the Corporate Cup 5k Challenge on May 12th in Montpelier to benefit the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.
