    How would one get on the lift from Spring Fling, the Mall, etc. Ski around the Valley House? I would think what we see under the lift is not going to be skiable right there.

    I did not hike down as I was in shorts and didn't feel like bushwacking. Everything is well grown in along the LT and Paradise Woods. You can't tell where it is from the LT. I did get a good look via my binoculars from Allyn's Lodge. It looks to be about 10-15 yards wide and 50+ yards long and stripped down to dirt. There's probably a big debris pile at the bottom - I could not get a view as hiked down Jester. t's likely no secret that it's about 20+ yards to skiers left of a familar woods area up there.

    For any older gentlemen/women out there Sugarbush lowered their senior discount age from 70 to 65. I still have several years to go.

    After complaining about the $$ Treatment of Senior Skiers when the age was raised to 70, this reversal of philosophy by reducing the age back to 65 was welcomed with open arms last May by this 66 year old skier.

    Win Smith turned 65 this year, and I believe that may have prompted the age lowering. He wants more of his peeps on the hill with him.
    Sugarbush skier since 1985.........Think Snow!

    I think that there was a loss of Senior skiers to other lower priced senior pass mountains inVT and that with the success of the Boomer Mid Week pass and the $$ being spent on the VH chair, Win wants to put as many people as possible on the mountain, young, old , families, college age, , middle age, or whatever, it does not matter.
