Sugarbush is a great place to increase your skills or even just learn how to ski, hence their slogan "Be Better Here". The Adventure Learning Center is packed with knowledgeable staff eager to help you learn how to ski or ride. Sure, the bunny slope may be a bit short, but it is the perfect place to make your first turns. The terrain parks and halfpipe are awesome, any freestyle skier/rider should check them out. There are numerous intermediate trails great for pushing yourself to the next level. Good selection of terrain off each express quad, from green circles to double black diamonds. The new base lodge at Lincoln Peak is amazing, along with Clay Brook (the new slopeside hotel) and Timbers (the new 'upscale' restaurant- slopeside). My only complaint: The lift that connects the two areas, Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen, only runs on select weekends and holidays. Overall Sugarbush is the best place in the east to ski or snowboard.
