Seasonal Programs Bulletin
Stay current on all seasonal programs communications from Mark Woolley, our Seasonal Programs Supervisor.
February 14, 2019 update:
Last weekend was firm and fast. Like we told the coaches, the groomed trails will get icier throughout the day. The natural snow trails will get better with traffic. Fortunately, on Tuesday night we received a foot of dense snow that has added to the fun factor. We received several more inches during the day on Wednesday. We are expecting a few inches Thursday and Friday as well. I will be exploring the woods, side country, and back country today and tomorrow to provide guidance to the coaches for the coming weekend.
If you are here during President’s week and are looking for something for the kids to be a part of, please consider our Advanced Kids Camp or our Holiday Race Camp. The information can be found on the Sugarbush website/Lessons and camps.
We would like to make you parents aware of a great opportunity for your own improvement on skis. The Women’s Ski Discovery Camps. The specific content is custom tailored to the needs of each participant and each group, and our team has an impeccable touch for creating learning experiences with the perfect blend of fun, learning, sharing and lots of skiing and riding. Whether you're a skier who is currently wedge turning on green terrain, or an accomplished skier looking for trees and steeps, our Women’s Discovery Camps create a wonderful community for all of us, participants and coaches alike!
The next camp is a weekday camp from March 4-6 (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). It will include video analysis, group meals, après ski parties and optional ski demos all included in the cost of the program. It's open to women age 18+ and cost is $575.
At Sugarbush, we understand that one of the biggest obstacles to participation in camps like Women's Discovery is wondering what the rest of the family will do while you are having a ball looking after yourself. This year we're answering that question for you. For each day of the program, each Women's Discovery Camp participant receives either a half-price full-day kids program in The Schoolhouse children's center or a half-price companion all-mountain lift pass
For information call 888.651.4827 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
Mt. Ellen Blazers:
Conditions are looking to be much improved for the weekend and the skiing should be great. Coaches are looking forward to doing some exploring. It will be very busy so any help finding lunch space would be appreciated. We are hoping to see everyone on Sunday.
This weekend is leading into President’s week. If you have your child signed up for midweek lessons but don't know what color level they should be in, please ask me and I will help. I want them to get the most out of their week of skiing.
I am hoping to film the kids skiing this weekend for our end of the year video. If this is or is not okay with you, let me know. Every year, I make a video of our kids throughout the season so you all can have those memories and see their.
We would like to thank Stella Goyette and her parents for allowing us to provide this instructional pictorial of how to dress for the cold in northern New England winters. Stella skis with Blazer coach Emily Preston.
Lost RFID card problem continues. A great solution is the goggle strap card holders that can be purchased in the Adventure Gear Shop at the Mountain. Otherwise, please make sure your child has a $5 bill in their pocket and the coach knows where it is so we can resolve the situation as quickly as possible. This issue continues to take time away from the rest of the group.
Seven Points to Your Responsibility Code
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
- You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
- Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
- Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
