Sugarbush Snowmaking Slated to Begin Thursday


Warren, VT (November 1, 2016) – Sugarbush Resort plans begin snowmaking for the 2016-17 winter season at the end of this week. The mountain operations team will make the decision to begin on Thursday night or Friday morning, depending on temperatures. The resort will aim to cover a top-to-bottom route that includes Jester, Downspout, Lower Downspout, Lower Jester, and Coffee Run. Additional trails may be added for Opening Day on Saturday, November 19th.

In addition to its snowmaking plan, Sugarbush has installed a snow stake webcam near the summit of Lincoln Peak to measure snowfall throughout the season. The resort has already seen 20” of natural snow since October. The webcam can be accessed at, and on the Sugarbush App, available for free on both the Apple and Google Play stores.
