Status update for Sat, Oct 13
We've received our first snowfall! An inch fell at the summits Saturday morning, with coverage down below mid-mountain and some flakes still in the air.
Happy 60th anniversary to Sugarbush and happy 70th to our neighbor, Mad River Glen! We are about 2 weeks away from the scheduled start of snowmaking and Opening Day at Lincoln Peak is set for Saturday, November 17th, weather permitting.
Fall foliage is currently peaking, with brilliant colors all over the Mad River Valley. The Sugarbush Resort Golf Club is open daily into late October from 9 AM - dusk and the pro shop is open 9 AM - 4 PM.The Sugarbush Health and Recreation Center is open daily including classes, fitness center and indoor pool, which is now salt water. Summer mountain activities have concluded for the season.
The Mad River Valley hiking and biking trail networks are 100% open and conditions are mostly dry and leaf-covered. The Riders' new Amenta's Way trail at Blueberry Lake is garnering rave reviews, especially with the incredible view of Granville Gulf and the Green Mountain spine. All the Blueberry Lake trails ride and hike great late into the fall.
Work has begun on the Evolution Phase II trail in Camel's Hump State Forest and the Hell Hill reroute at Eurich Pond too! Leaf clearing on existing trails will start in a couple weeks, to extend the season and get the trails ready for winter/spring runoffs. Check the Mad River Riders and Mad River Path for more info.
Sugarbush ... be better here.

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.
