Visitor Reviews of Sugarbush

Bob from United States writes:

Most of these reviews are outdated. Sugarbush has undergone a metamorphic change in the past few years, under the ever present watchful eye of its current owner and management. Sugarbush is surely the friendliest ski area in the east, if not of all ski areas. If you don't feel welcome here, well then you probably won't feel welcome anywhere. Sugarbush boast varied terrain for all types. The few negative comments about the Castlerock area are from those obviously missing what Sugarbush is all about. The lower capacity of that special lift prevents overcrowding, on those special natural snow filled trails that wind there way down amidst Vermont's forests, in what is clearly a mini Mad River Glenn area amongst one of Vermont's finest resorts. The lodges and facilities have all been upgraded in recent years, and new real estate construction is still currently underway. Sugarbush has some of the finest groomed trails, the best tree and glade skiing, surely the lowest lines with its vast lift capacity and terrain, and the best bump trails in the east. Try the others, if you wish, and then compare them to Sugarbush. You can ski anywhere, but you will feel you've come home at Sugarbush.
