Vermont Adventures

Part of what makes Sugarbush so special is the people that live and play here.

Experience Sugarbush like the locals do, because you are one! Now more than ever we could all use a change of scenery. Make the Mad River Valley your home away from home this winter and enjoy perks and discounts just for Vermonters! 

As a Green Mountain State resident, you know that our state has a lot more to offer than just craft beer and maple syrup, although those things are delicious. A lot of what there is to love about Vermont can be experienced right here at the mountain. Wide open spaces, gorgeous mountain views, legendary terrain, and plenty of fresh air are just the beginning of what's in store during a trip to Sugarbush. It's time to plan your Vermont staycation!

First Timer to Life Timer Program

It's a great time for new hobbies! If you or someone you know is interested in learning to ski or ride, the First Timer to Life Timer Program is a great opportunity to not only learn to ski, but making skiing/riding a lifelong passion. This program features four, two-hour long private lessons to take you from fitting and getting comfortable with the equipment, to sliding on snow for the first time, to making your first turns and using lifts! Plus, for participants who are new to snow sports, the program includes a FREE pair of Elan Skis or a Rome Snowboard with bindings. 

Value Pass

Value Passes are still on sale for as low as $429. Enjoy daily access to Mt. Ellen throughout the winter season, midweek non-holiday access to Lincoln Peak, and early/late season access to Lincoln Peak when Mt. Ellen is not open. Get the best value on a winter full of adventure! We like to consider this pass a local's secret. 

Mt. Ellen

Mt. Ellen know for its old school vibe, vertical and the award winning Riemergasse Terrain Park. It is one of Vermont's four thousand footers and is a good 100 feet taller than Lincoln Peak. The Green Mountain Express Quad opens at 8 AM daily, providing first of the first tracks on the mountain. Mt. Ellen has over 2600 feet of lift serviced vertical, and is very popular with our locals. Ski and ride like a true local with a Mt. Ellen-only ticket - plenty of terrain for everyone for less!
