Status update for Sun, Jan 24
Join us for a blue-bird day on all 111 of our trails. A 3-day total of 7" of pow has kept our mountain fresh, and we're keeping our eyes peeled for some potential snow on Wednesday and possible storms next Monday. There's always more snow on the horizon here at Sugarbush!
Our groomers wove fresh stripes on 55 of our runs, with smooth terrain for all abilities. Temps are expected to be just below zero and in the single digits, giving our snowmakers ample opportunity to blow fluff on 5 trails, including Hot Shot and Riemergasse. Our parks crew has got huge plans for their Riemergasse build once snowmaking is done, but for now they've got 21 features on Slowpoke and 30 in the exceptional Sugar Run park.
Please use the GMT shuttle to access the base of Slide Brook Road on German Flats. There is no public parking permitted here as it is a private driveway for the Slide Brook residents.
GMX, Super Bravo, and Heaven's Gate are scheduled to start loading at 8AM. All other lifts (except Slide Brook) spin at 9 AM. Slide Brook Express runs from 10AM - 3:15PM. Upper mountain lifts spin until 3:45PM, base lifts run until 4PM. Winds and low temps may affect lift operations.
Please check the Uphill Travel Information page for all the details before starting your ascent. Uphill travel is open at Lincoln Peak from 4AM - 7AM on Racer's Edge>Lower Snowball>Snowball and 5PM-10PM on Easy Rider>Lower Pushover>Pushover>Birch Run. Mt. Ellen is open for uphill travel from 4AM - 7AM and 5PM - 10PM on the same morning/evening route - Easy Does It>Straight Shot>Cruiser>Lower Rim Run>Rim Run.

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.
