Status update for Sat, Dec 10

Better be here today. Sugarbush is riding the snow train, with 9" more at summits in the last 24 hours and 21" in the last 3 days. Expect temps in the single digits to teens, top to bottom, with partial clearing in the afternoon. More snow is forecast to arrive tomorrow.

The groomers rolled Organgrinder, Jester, Downspout, Lower Downspout, Lower Jester and Coffee Run for your carving pleasure. A light fresh coat of new snow should be covering the corduroy too. Sugarbush Parks has 5 flowy freestyle features on Allyn's Traverse.

Most of the Valley House area is set to open this morning, with early powder turns on favorites like The Mall, Twist, Moonshine, and possibly Stein's. Snowmakers are hard at work on Snowball, Spring Fling, and Valley House Traverse. Conditions will likely be challenging on the Valley House trails, snow cover is still thin on low elevation natural snow trails, and the snowmaking trails will not be groomed today.

We plan to have 52 trails open at Lincoln Peak, including beginner terrain on First Time served by the Welcome Mat from 9 AM - 4 PM. Super Bravo is scheduled 8 AM - 4 PM, Heaven's Gate from 8 AM - 3:45 PM and Valley House Quad from 9 AM - 4 PM, serving advanced skiing and riding only.

All trails at Castlerock are open from 10 AM - 2 PM and are accessible via hiking the ridgeline from Paradise. The 7 trails at Mt Ellen will be reserved for GMVS race training. Projected Mt. Ellen Opening Day is next Friday, December 16th.

Sign up for Valley Ski Week for a fun friendly season-starting skills booster and book your holiday adventures now with Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame 2016 inductee, John Egan! We're wishing our neighbors, Mad River Glen, a great first day tomorrow. Community is better in the Valley.

Uphill travel at Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen is not permitted at this time, except to access Castlerock from Paradise. Check the Winter Trail Use Policy for details on uphill access and review the Skier Responsibility Code for a safe fun season.

Check our webcams for lift line and snow fall updates. The snow stake is cleared daily at 3:45 PM.

Sugarbush ... Be better here.
