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-timer program, private and group lessons, backcountry tours, bumps clinics and more.

Map it!
