    Conditions today were absolutely prime on the manmade trails. Not bad on the natural trails with more coverage such as Spills and OG but Snowball to Fling was superstar carving material. Pushover was also excellent.

    You never know if you don't go. Hardly any rain at all.
    I’m more talking about tomorrow. Most if not all of the natural trails closed, and it is forecasted to be very warm. Shame.

    I'd simply call and ask but hopefully Win sees this and it's brought to his attention his walk-up prices are tough to find.
    If you do the math they are $139 holiday and $129 regular.

    Being such a large independent resort, having such high ticket prices is nescessary. Once Alterra owns it though, I think tickets at these prices will just be too much. $139 is really only worth it on a weekend like President’s when all trails and lifts (including Slide Brook are open). Never would I visit Sugarbush at a time like Presidents and only ski Lincoln. I would feel the need to ski both mountains to get my money’s worth.

    Also lol at anyone that actually pays walk up rates...if someone hasn’t discovered the internet by now, there’s not much hope for them.

    Although oddly enough I know many people that have no problem paying $100+ for concert or sporting event tickets for just a few hours of entertainment. (I personally won’t)

    HG was open first thing Sunday morning. Rode it twice & thought it probably should go on windhold, with the way the chairs were swinging.

    Yesterday was very nice. I agree that the man made were excellent. The whales on lower og were fun too. The natural snow on lower domino and upper og was great as well.

    Today’s a different story. Substantially firmer than I was expecting in many spots. Some definite damage was done by Mother Nature last night.

    The sugar bash is this Saturday but no Grift. Does anyone know why? They have been playing the sugar bash for as long as I remember.

    I know it says no grooming. But it seems like they did make a quick pass this morning on a few trails. There’s no way that much cord is still showing from yesterday. And if you follow those paths you’re finding the softest snow today.
