John Egan's Bush Pilots (ages 18+)
Meeting every Saturday from December 21, 2019 to March 14, 2020 from 9:45 AM to 2:00 PM, Bush Pilots is a seasonal program unique on the American ski scene. Take the incomparable big-mountain and wilderness terrain available at Sugarbush, sprinkle in fresh snow, add Egan and his team of the finest Sugarbush pros, and you end up thigh deep in the best expert coaching this side of Chamonix.
Bush Pilots participants must be expert skiers of 18+ years in good physical condition who ski aggressively on black diamond or double black diamond terrain. This group is fast-paced and demanding, with lift-rides often being the only reprieve. Bush Pilots must have a Sugarbush Premium Pass and are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible so as not to miss out on any adventures or guest coaches.
As group interest dictates, additional early morning or late afternoon adventures may be planned. Participants should be well equipped with fat skis, good bindings (alpine, AT, or telemark) and should seriously consider backpacks with food, water, backcountry gear, and extra layers.
The Bush Pilots program is fully booked for the 2019/2020 season.
