April 9, 2019 update:

Greetings Blazer Community!

Spring is having trouble catching on here in the Mad River Valley. We still have great cover and great skiing. There are plenty of spring related activities and events here at Sugarbush over the next several weekends. I am sure that many of you are enjoying spring sports with your kids down country in warmer weather. I know I have enjoyed a couple of days watching my kids play lacrosse in Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire in 60 degree temperatures already.

This past Blazer season was an utter pleasure for the coaches and me. The enthusiasm put forth from the kids and their families was tremendous. Many things go into a great season. The fact that we had a consistent snow pack this season gave the kids and coaches an opportunity to get into the woods, side country, and back country more often than normal during the course of a season. In a bad snow year, the onus is on the coach to create the various adventures without the help of the off-piste experiences. We challenge the coaches to provide that in that situation. We have much confidence in our staff here in this regard. We always will gladly accept consistent snow every season though!

We encourage you to purchase next season’s Blazers as soon as possible as space in these programs fills up quickly and are limited. Spring rates are available now through May 9, 2019. The Seasonal Programs here at Sugarbush are in high demand from new families looking to make Sugarbush their mountain of choice. Please reserve your child’s spot early this spring. When you consider signing your child up again, please remember that consistent attendance is the best way to ensure that their ability to progress accordingly along with the other kids in their group is critical. Moving a child to another group after several weeks of absence can be traumatizing to them. Kids that attend consistently in December have already upped their game and stamina for the rest of the season. Attend early and consistently and the chances for success increase tremendously.

The SkiMos for next season update:

So far, more than half of the current SkiMos have purchased their spot for next season. There are approximately 20 kids on the current waitlist. We anticipate that we won’t make any decisions about those on the waitlist any earlier than September.  If you are on the waitlist and definitely are interested in your spot in Adventure Blazers as well, we encourage you to sign up for Adventure Blazers now. We can upgrade to SkiMos as that develops.

Thank you all once again for an enjoyable season! We are looking forward to next season when  everyone returns to our mountain playground. I live close by year round. I hope to run into many of you when you visit during the “non-snow” season. Any spare time I have I’m on the golf course.

Thanks,

Mark Woolley
