Martin Luther King Weekend Events

Warren, VT (January 4, 2023) – A weekend full of events at Sugarbush for Martin Luther King Day from ice sculptures to live music and fireworks.

To kick off the weekend and continue with NSAA Safety Month, Shrediquette at Mt. Ellen will be from 11 AM – 12 PM. Meet the parks team and learn how to navigate the parks. Both skiers and riders will have the opportunity to practice while getting tips from the Ski & Ride team. Not to mention, swag will be given to all who participate. 

Saturday midday there will be an ice sculpture demonstration in the Lincoln Peak Courtyard. From 11 AM – 2 PM watch the transformation from ice to art, as the sculpturist works their magic. The end result will be a photo-worthy depiction of a moose. 

Events continue Saturday with the weekly Blizzard Boogie in the Lincoln Peak Courtyard. Gather around the firepits with DJ Patrick Quimby to party from 1 PM – 4 PM. With a family-friendly atmosphere, cool prizes, and giveaways, you’ll want to be there.
