We had a great time. A friend told me that the conditions over Christmas were "epic". They were not epic last weekend, but they were very good. What I liked about Sugarbush was the terrain. There was something for all abilities and the fact that the mountain never seemed crowded enough though the parking lot was full. Everyone was really friendly, and it is evident that people really like working there and take pride in what they are doing. I met a local on the chair who told me how different the current owners are from prior ones and how they are out on the mountain all the time. He then pointed down and said, "there is one of them now."
After skiing on Saturday, we went into Timbers where we had a great lunch for apres ski, and there was a terrific jazz band from the Berklee school in Boston playing. That was a real treat.
We did get over to Mount Ellen on Sunday, and there are some really nice trails there as well. We will definitely be back.
