Good news! Last night we received 1" of new snow across higher elevations, which will help out what are already great conditions out on the mountain. We are skiing and riding on 100% of our 111 trails making Sugarbush one of the select few resorts in the country that can make this claim. The forecast today is calling for light mixed precipitation. With some colder temps and a bit of luck it may fall entirely as snow especially across higher elevations. Groomers resurfaced 41 trails last night with fresh corduroy for your enjoyment this morning. The North Lynx Triple will close for a couple of days this week in order for snow makers to build a stronger base. Hoses will need to be stretched across both Birch and Sunrise making those trails unskiable. The plan is to have North Lynx reopened for the weekend and with a little help from new snow accumulation this week our intent is to open the Castlerock Double and Slide Brook Express for the weekend bringing us back up to 100%. The park features at the base of Mt. Ellen and Lincoln Peak have been removed to make way for snowmaking at these locations. The Riemergasse Terrain Park remains open. Be advised that thin cover does exist on natural snow terrain so please use caution. Patroller’s picks of the day are Organgrinder at Lincoln Peak and Inverness at Mt. Ellen.
