    WCAX at 3 PM today The storm will move in tonight just after midnight with snow, especially in the higher elevations, but the snow will mix with, and change to rain in the valleys by daybreak on Saturday. By Saturday afternoon, a surge of warmer air will move in aloft, changing the mountain...

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Don't confuse "open" with any depth of snow on natural trails. Slidebrook lift needs significant snow depth before it will run.

    Skiing..helping or hurting

    I have been at my place at Sugarbush since before Christmas and have not bothered to ski this season. I have been hiking 2-4 hours a day on many of the trails here in the Mad River Valley and it's a great way to get outdoors and avoid crowds and people. Sugarbush has limited terrain open and...

    The only bright spot in the upcoming week is that at Mad River Glen.... “Also, worth mentioning, we will be selling four-packs of Lawson's Finest Liquids "Still Single" IPA from the pub Wednesday and Thursday."

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Lift lines are going to be a worse than usual shit show on weekends at LP. Sugarbush has traditionally had a high percentage of skiers and riders that were passholders and Ikon is just going to put more people on the hill and in lift lines. Forget about the usual uphill capacity when you need...

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Yes that's reasonable. Sugarbush sold Quad Packs in November with the expectation that they would be used last season. You had from opening day on November 23rd to March 14th when the mountain closed to use the transferable, unrestricted tickets. It's a good gesture to extend the use of Quad...

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Looks like it's either move to VT or skip skiing this season: Visiting Sugarbush Resort ALL guests coming to ski at Sugarbush must sign a one-time attestation with the state of Vermont. *More information on how to do this is forthcoming*. Anyone entering the state of Vermont from another state...

    Jay Peak - Tips? e.g. for driving up with Teens (food, places?)

    I have driven from the Boston area to Sugarbush which is a 3+ hour drive for years. We quickly learned that unless it's a bio break or gas fill up then you don't need to stop. Eat dinner at home and get on the road after 6:30 to avoid traffic.

    What is the best green run in the East?

    Toughest green run - Walt's Trail at Mt Ellen. Natural snow, rarely groomed and lots of early season water bars to navigate. It's always funny to frequently see an orange "Advanced Skiers Only" warning sign for a green rated trail.

    Mostly stocked rainbows, some brook trout and for all the times I have fished in the Mad River I have only caught 2 brown trout.

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Went up this weekend and saw other MA and out of state plates driving around the MRV. Bottom line is that we packed everything we needed so no trips to the Mehuron's, Bisbees,or even take out food. I did go fishing in the Mad River early in the morning each day (15 trout!) and we hiked on the...

    Boot Flex

    Good luck finding a performance boot that fits without any issues for $300. Like just about everyone in his thread has told you - go to a shop with a real bootfitter and be prepared to spend north of $500 for the right boot for you.
