Sugarbush’s Mt. Ellen to Open 100% On Friday, December 16th


Warren, VT (December 12, 2016) – Sugarbush Resort plans to open every trail at Mt. Ellen this Friday, December 16th, in large part thanks to the abundance of natural snow the Sugarbush has received to start the season.

Green Mountain Express will run 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and upper mountain lifts will run 9:00 AM to 3:45 PM. Mt. Ellen Base Lodge will be serving breakfast and lunch beginning at 7:30 AM, and the Green Mountain Lounge will be open for lunch and après beginning at 11:00 AM. The new bar at the Glen House, Walt’s, will have its grand opening on Friday serving gourmet grilled cheeses, soups, and a new bar.

The resort is also hopeful to open the remainder of its terrain at Lincoln Peak, making all of Sugarbush 100% open. The resort’s hiking/skinning policy will also be in effect on designated routes. For full details on the policy visit
