    Funny part is every other mountain I went to on the VT 4 pass that has RFID was happy to include the RFID fee as part of the pass. But of course friendly ol' Smuggs made damn sure they got that 5 dollars and change from you. Worth it though

    It might have to do with maintenance. I guess there was some badly needed maintenance on the Bravo lift and that is why they closed the lift early causing the need to keep reverse traverse open. They were saying they needed a certain amount of time to complete the work in time for summer activities. I guess that means they also needed to delay summer activities also if you say it is a later start. They started taking off all the chairs last week.

    We always close Bravo at this date. The difference this year is that we stayed open every days a week longer. Last year we closed and then reopened two final weekends This is just routine maintenance to get prepared for the summer. We also have to get the state to inspect it. Our summer activities normally start the weekend before the fourth. It all gets done and we can get the lift inspected we will begin summer activities on the 22nd.

    Sugarbush is having their Brewgrass festival this weekend. Really good time if you like Vermont Beer. 23 Breweries in attendance:

    • 14th Star • Citizen Cider • Collaborative Brewing • Cousins Brewing • Drop In • Farnham Ale & Lager • Fiddlehead • Frost Beer Works • Goodwater • Halyard • Harpoon • Hermit Thrush • Lawson’s Finest Liquids • Long Trail • Magic Hat • Otter Creek • Prohibition Pig • Shed • Stone Corral • Switchback • Upper Pass • Von Trapp • Zero Gravity •

    We have a big ride planned for the morning and lots of beer for the afternoon. I think Sunday is going to hurt.

    They posted some pictures on Facebook a week or so ago showing some of the widening. And I believe I read somewhere that pipe is now being laid
