Six distinct peaks of unleashed potential. Two uncrowded mountain areas. And 2,000 acres of backcountry in the Slide Brook Basin. It’s no surprise Sugarbush was recently named “Best Ski Town in the East” by Outside Magazine.

At the heart of Sugarbush is Lincoln Peak—think quintessential Vermont meets modern slopeside living. Here you’ll find the majority of Sugarbush terrain with classic New England trails leading to the nascent Lincoln Peak Village which includes Clay Brook slopeside hotel and residences, a general store, casual and elegant dining, and the new Schoolhouse and Farmhouse. The Schoolhouse is home base for all children’s day ski-and-ride programs, and The Farmhouse hosts Sugarbush’s acclaimed Ski & Ride School which includes the first-timer-to-life-timerprogram, private and group lessons, backcountry tours, bumps clinics and more.

Map it!

The air felt cooler when we turned right off Route 100 and made our way up a dirt road in Rochester. After driving for 90 minutes with my 7-year-old daughter, Phoebe, we were eager to arrive at our destination, stretch our legs and settle in. With just a half-mile to go, I turned off the … Read More

Christmas may come at the beginning of ski season but last year my husband Matt had one thing on his mind: golf. He wanted our sons to learn play a game he himself enjoys in much the same way I love to ski. With great glee, he bought starter clubs for 15-year-old Tommy and 12-year-old Teddy, placed them … Read More

“Golf is boring. It’s something only grownups like.” Spoken with the true wisdom that only a 14-year-old boy possesses. And with the true wisdom that only the mom of a 14-year-old boy possesses, I suggested to my husband Matt that perhaps he was, shall we say, less than likely to persuade our son Tommy otherwise. Generally … Read More

It was always a scramble to find a lost ski mitten, layout long johns, and pack the ski bags. Living in Vermont, we were determined that our kids were going to learn ski because … Read More

Stay in One Vermont Valley and Ski Three Resorts

February 6, 2015

I love convenience as much as the next person, especially on a ski vacation. Staying slope side means parking and unpacking the car and then thinking only of what time you want to get up and catch the lift in the morning. But what about when the conditions aren’t great, limiting what is open at … Read More
