After a long stretch of productive winter weather, Sugarbush is ready for a bright sunny day. With Mt. Ellen opening yesterday, we now have 100% of our 111 legendary trails available. Temps are expected in the teens and 20's, top to bottom, with light wind.

Our grooming team buffed 30 trails and the snowmakers are storming 7 trails, mainly Gatehouse and GMX terrain. Sugarbush Parks is excited to share their newest creations in the Mt. Ellen Riemergasse Park, with 15 features and a couple floaty booters. The Hollywood Park at Lincoln Peak is still in play with 5 features.

Natural snow trails are in generally excellent condition, especially at Mt. Ellen. Take care in the off-piste, the base is thin, the gullies have flowing water and there are newly fallen limbs in many places. Please note, the only groomed route on Gate House is Pushover. The Inverness trail will be open for GMVS Race Training only from 11AM-4PM.

We plan to run 13 lifts today. Super Bravo, Heaven's Gate, and GMX spin at 8:00 AM, all other lifts start at 9:00 AM. Lower mountain lifts close at 4:00 PM and upper mountain lifts close at 3:45 PM. Slide Brook Express is expected to run for the first time this season 10:00AM - 3:30PM. Sunny D will be delayed, likely running 11:00AM-4:00PM. Until upgrades on North Ridge are finished, Mt. Ellen season passholders may ski and ride at Lincoln Peak.

All Mtn tickets are $91 for adults, $71 for juniors and seniors, kids 6 and under always ski and ride for free at Sugarbush. Mt. Ellen-only tickets are just $69 for adults and $59 for juniors and seniors. To save time, you can purchase etickets before arrival. To see our full pass office hours, click here.

Fine tune your skills for a great season with the Sugarbush Ski & Ride School. Private and group lessons are available for all abilities, with great learning terrain.

The free Mad Bus is running its full winter schedule, including new routes. Save some apres ski dancing energy for all the awesome live music this afternoon in Castlerock Pub, Wunderbar, and Green Mountain Lounge.
