I skied Sugarbush yesterday after the rain Tuesday it was locked up really good. What was groomed was ok but they only had basically one route groomed from each lift so the skiing was really limited and it was not marked which trails what were groomed and what was not. We got on one blue from hell that was not groomed and we had to ride it out to the bottom. We all were really shaken up literally from that.
I was there for the Volkl shop and pro rep demo day. The skiing was only ok at best but we had a good time skiing with the MDV crew. Found a really fun ski I will order in the fall the Code S and short turning carver with a waist in the mid to low 70's. It rocked the hard pack and would be a good WF ski.

Warren, VT (November 7, 2017) – Sugarbush Resort began snowmaking for the 2017-18 winter season late last night and plans to continue through the week with a string of cold temps in the forecast. The resort is currently making snow on Jester, Organgrinder, Downspout, and Allyn’s Traverse at Lincoln Peak and Rim Run, Elbow and Looking Good at Mt. Ellen.
The forecast also calls for a chance of snow on Thursday night or Friday. Sugarbush’s projected Opening Day is Saturday, November 18th, weather permitting.

Just want to let people on here know (much like my MRG post), if you were thinking about hitting Sugarbush this year, it's prime time right now. Was there today and it was amazing. Lots of locals agreed far and away everything is skiing the best of the season, and even within the last few years
Trees are loaded, bumps are soft with no icy troughs, and coverage is outstanding.
Went here on Wednesday - IKON pass trip. Cold and somewhat firm conditions. Last time I was here (a million years ago) there was a gondola that ran all of the way to the summit - I guess part of it burned down and they chose not to replace it. Not sure why not because it gave access to a decent 2400' vertical. Would like to come back here after a good snow storm.
Sugar is skiing great so far this long weekend. Nice power stashes on the sides of the upper mountain trails. The old timers don't like us here on a weekday, crowding the trails they have themselves during the week.
