As someone who has worked at Sugarbush for a year now, one of my favorite things about the Mad River Valley is that I still continue to learn new things about the mountain. The people that make this a special place, and the hidden terrain gems that are spread across both mountains. The newly created Visitors Guide, located on our website, is the perfect way to learn about Sugarbush. Discover what both the mountain and the Mad River Valley have in store for your next visit.
When looking at a map of Sugarbush, you can immediately tell that it’s a pretty big place: tall and wide enough to serve anyone enough terrain while still being pretty easy to navigate. Whether scenic and mellow cruisers are your type of perfect run or tight trees engulfed in waist deep powder, chances are you’ll find it here. While I’m sure you’ve heard one of our employees tell you, “There’s a little bit of something for everyone!” as far as terrain goes and as someone that is still fairly new to the mountain, I recognize that it’s a little hard to know where to start. Sugarbush offers so much, even more than what sometimes meets the eye. I know if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to miss any part of what the locals experience or what makes certain places so special.
Sugarbush has lots of employees and residents that have lived here for years so we’ve channeled those resources into one spot where folks can check out some of the most important things about the mountain and the Mad River Valley. Not just for first time visitors, but for people that are ready to get the full experience of being both on and off the mountain. Maybe you’ve been to Sugarbush before but you want to dig a little deeper into the places that surround it, are looking for insider tips to avoiding lift lines, or maybe you are exploring the idea of taking a family vacation to Vermont and want to see what makes Sugarbush different from other resorts. No matter your story, we know that our Visitors Guide is a resource that can be used for beginners and experts alike.
In the Visitors Guide you’ll find an introduction to the basics like where to stay overnight when you’re here or where to take a midday break and rest those legs. It even goes into detail about how to construct the perfect day at Sugarbush based on your needs and ability level. But we also know that a trip to the mountain isn’t just about skiing and riding, which is why there’s a whole section on local favorites for après as well as some of our favorite bites all over the mountain depending on what you’re in the mood for.
So, whether you’re still in the planning stages of your Vermont getaway or you’ve been visiting Sugarbush for years and are looking for new ways to enjoy the mountain, the Visitors Guide is a great resource to check out and keep in your back pocket.
