It's a winter wonderland here at Sugarbush as we enjoy half a foot of fresh snow. With stormy skies above our torchlight parade and fireworks tonight, we're stoked about the potential for more freshies. The forecast is looking spectacular as we await a possible 4-7" Sunday thru Monday.

Wooded areas between open trails are not patrolled and have no skier/snowboarder services. If you ski/snowboard in wooded areas, you are solely responsible for yourself. Enter and exit only from marked open trails. You should be an expert skier/snowboarder. Do not ski/ride alone. Unmarked obstacles exist throughout.

If you ski/ride in areas other than open and designated trails, you are voluntarily accepting additional responsibility for injury or death. When you enter areas between or outside designated trails, you have entered the unknown. These areas are not maintained or patrolled. You are assuming risks that may include getting lost or suffering other harm or injury.
