Glen Ellen Retro Events Day at Sugarbush

March 30, 2024

Sugarbush’s Mount Ellen is celebrating its 60th anniversary this winter and celebrating with a series of events, including this one for a trip down memory lane. Take the family out to watch some good old fashioned sloshwicking (racing up the mountain with one snowshoe, one ski, and a broom) and the gelandesprung (ski jumping). 


Golden Watermelon Hunt at Stratton

March 31, 2024

I have to admit, I remember this one from when I was a kid. Clues will be released every hour online or collected from Guest Services until the watermelon is found. So grab the kids and hit the slopes on the hunt for the Golden Watermelon. The lucky skier or rider who finds it hidden around the slopes can win a seasons pass for the ‘24-’25 winter season and enjoy a few slices of watermelon.

The Snowmelt: Slush Cup and Spring Fling at Okemo

April 6, 2024

Okemo celebrates the arrival of spring at The Snowmelt. And what better way to celebrate than with the annual spring tradition of skiing or riding across a giant puddle. Will you sink or will you swim? Not ready to go for a dip? A pond skim is an excellent spectator sport.

Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge at Killington

April 6, 2024

The Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge is a personal favorite. If you have an affinity for spring bump skiing enter this amateur event and participate in one of the greatest spring competitions on snow. If moguls aren’t your thing, watching them should be because some skiers break out the retro gear and go big in the bumps.
