Good morning! Get ready for another good day at Sugarbush. The summit was treated with a 1/2 inch dusting overnight! Today's forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies with temps in the mid 30's at the base and high 20's at the summit. Winds may affect lifts today, stay posted for updates on windholds.

The groomers smoothed out 40 trails last night, including Ripcord, Birch Run, Snowball, and Spring Fling. The summits will likely stay crisper, with progressively more forgiving snow at lower elevations. Conditions should be easiest early, then softening and piling up later in the day.

Snowmaking trails have excellent cover, while natural snow terrain is thinner. If you head to places like Castlerock or Exterminator, be sure to ski light and aim for the white. We have trails available for all abilities, including first timers. Snowmakers are setting up for the cold spell coming up this week. They were making snow on 6 trails last night and are ready and waiting for temps to drop at lower elevations.

Head to Mt. Ellen's Riemergasse Park for 13 creative features and a sweet jump, or show off your skills in Lincoln Peak's Hollywood Park, outside Valley House Lodge.

We are nearly 100% open, with 106 of 111 trails. We are scheduled to run all 16 lifts today. GMX, Super Bravo, and Heaven's Gate are scheduled to open at 8:00AM. Other lower mountain lifts spin 9:00AM - 4:00PM, upper mountain lifts load 9:00AM-3:45PM, and Slide Brook runs 10:00AM-3:15PM. The North Ridge Express is down for maintenance. Mountain ops is confident about repairs and anticipates a 9:00AM opening.

All Mountain holiday and weekend 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 $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.
