Vermont Business Magazine Thanks to the hard work of Sugarbush’s snowmaking team and a little cooperation from Mother Nature, Sugarbush Resort is opening a day early this season on Friday, November 17th.
The resort will be operating the Gate House Quad from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM providing access to a groomed Pushover, Slowpoke, Lower Pushover, and Sugarbear Road. The first 200 guests to show up will receive a limited-edition Opening Day hat, as well as a free breakfast sandwich.
Given the time of year, early season conditions are to be expected. Starting Friday, Sugarbush will begin operating seven days a week for the 2023/24 winter season.
On Saturday, the resort will host its annual kickoff party, The Big Kicker, from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. There will be live music from the Party Crashers, a bonfire, rail jam, food and drink, and community partners including High Fives, VASS, US Forest Service, Mad River Riders, Mad River Valley Backcountry Coalition, Long Trail, Catamount Trail Association, Flyin’ Ryan, and the Kelly Brush Foundation.
Sugarbush plans to continue expanding terrain as snowmaking temps allow and is currently focused on making snow on the Heaven's Gate pod before eventually connecting it down to the base. The snow report will continue to post the latest operational updates.
The resort also asks that guests refrain from uphill travel for the time being, as mountain operations continue around both mountains. Sugarbush will announce when uphill travel will be allowed.
