New USA Resort! Have you heard about Sugarbush?
With the snow starting to fall there already, it’s time for us to introduce to you Sugarbush, SkiBound’s most recent addition to the East Coast and one of New England’s largest ski areas. Made up of two magnificent mountains, Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen, it has three terrain parks, six peaks, abundant wooded areas and the 2,000-acre Slide Brook Basin. Groups with beginners can choose the Lincoln Peak area, a haven for those new to skiing with extensive easy terrain. Those who have skied before can venture up to Mt. Ellen (the third highest peak in Vermont!) which features more challenging slopes, snow parks, and lots of intermediate runs for students perfecting their carving turns. There is also Castlerock Peak, featuring steep winding trails giving the more seasoned skier a real challenge. Sugarbush is a fantastic choice for all skiing abilities and is well connected by chairlifts and a free shuttle for that easy access between slopes.
At the base of the mountain, Lincoln Peak Village offers a vibrant hub of activities with restaurants, shops and the ski school base. Sugarbush is also just a scenic 45-minute drive from Burlington which provides a unique experience unmatched by any other Vermont destinations. Here your group can enjoy a classic Vermont experience with local shopping, covered bridges, ice skating, cross country skiing, sledging, sleigh rides and plenty more. Fancy seeing one of the oldest cites in the US? Add a historical element to the trip and visit Boston, only a 3-hour bus journey away, an excellent way of exploring more of the East Coast.
A trip to Sugarbush is the chance for students to experience an independently owned and operated ski resort that remain true to its Vermont authenticity. It will offer your school ski groups that classic New England ski experience while having the chance to travel to a country renowned for its contrasting cities, languages and landscapes.
