It was good. I liked it. There was snow and outdoor food. Covid safe. Short lines most days, only long twice all season. Definitely mogul happy terrain. So much to explore!

Resort run by kids
Feb 2021 • Family
Resort run by kids. Bought a weekend ski pass for the 5 of us and a two night stay at the clay Brooke lodge. Firstly after spending an hour online registering all of us with their website about a month before our trip they called us up two nights before our planned arrival at 9pm to say they had lost our information and needed all of it again. Upon arrival nobody could find our ski passes so that was fun walking all around talking to kids who were clueless. Asked for a blender the night before arrival; then again at check in then again after check in. Reserved a table at rumble for dinner and was told we could only have the table for 1.5 hrs because of “covid” whatever that means. Whoever made the reservation has to download the menu and we have to order only through their phone! Thank goodness the skiing is good because their service sucks.

Does not honor previously purchased tickets
Feb 2020
I purchased 4 single day lift tickets in advance last year and the mountain closed a week before our vacation due to COVID. They refuse to honor our tickets this season. They are the only mountain that will not honor last years passes. It is completely unreasonable and I will not be spending any more money with them. I tried calling their customer service over 10 times and the line never goes through. It just hangs up on me.

Good skiing on Sugarbush in Vermont
Jan 2021
We stayed as family twice this season, around Christmas and one long weekend in January. Skiing was good overall, with many more trails open in January and good quality of snow. Surprisingly we enjoyed Mt. Ellen even more than Lincoln, due to better variety of blue runs that my children liked. Lincoln Peak needs to increase blue runs quantity in my view. Food is good at Lincoln Peak - we liked Rumble's a lot, good service, very good food, although very pricey. Stay away from Waltz Pub

Sugarbush - too much money for what you get!
Jan 2021 • Family
Bought 3 day passes for $169 each and 3 of the major lifts were closed denying access to a good portion of the mountain. I was told we could walk up to one of the peaks if we wanted to access it so conditions were not the issue. Same with the other 2 chairs. If these closures were due to mechanical issues then don’t charge a premium. What we did ski on was good but Trails were a little short.

Doesn't treat is client base fairly
Feb 2020
Sugarbush has been our go-to resort for a few years now but I am sorely disappointed in their approach to COVID and the Alterra merger. First, I have a number of quad passes left over from last year that could not be used when the resort closed. Apparently they all need to be used by 12/24 or they will expire. Second, Sugarbush excludes adults from purchasing the local Sugarbush Premium pass. Why would anyone want to purchase an EPIC pass (and pay for the privilege) this ski season when travel is shut down? I hope Sugarbush addresses both of these really bad decisions.

Nice ski resort
Mar 2020
I've been to Sugarbush twice recently. The terrain is quite good. They have a good number of trails and variety of trails. The vertical drop is quite good as well. I think it is one of the best places in New England to ski.

Goodbye from a lifelong fan
Mar 2020
This season (2019/'20) my wife and I spent $1269 for our passes. Next year the only comparable pass available to us (Ikon) will cost $2,117. That is a 67% price increase - not coincidental that the 2020/'21 season will be the first under Alterra ownership.

Please don't insult our intelligence by offering the rebuttal that the Ikon roster has all this value. It's a dirty trick to eliminate a Sugarbush-only pass, plain and simple. This is the kind of corporate greed that has no place in Vermont or in our valley. Shame on you.

Down to earth resort; great instructors!
Mar 2020 • Couples
We loved our time at Sugarbush. Smaller resort but still had a wide variety of runs. Parking was completely manageable despite going on a crowded weekend. I had ski lessons on both Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen and loved my instructors (Marijke on the former and Norm on the latter).

Great skiing. Lodgings and facilities so-so.
Feb 2020 • Family
We spent Presidents Week at Sugarbush as a family of 5, with all kids under 10.

The mountain (Lincoln) was great, varied runs, excellent parks, trees and moguls. Runs to suit abilities from competent to advanced (beginners might be better at Mt Ellen). Lots of parking and the lifts ran smoothly and quickly.

Snow camp and ski school were superb. Everyone we met was lovely, friendly and cheerful.

5/5 for the mountain

We booked a lodge at Club Sugarbush, because we wanted quick access to the mountain and for the kids to be able to have a swim after skiing. This was not so good.

The lodge (#33) was a little tired, with chipped paint, cigarette burns on the sofa, ripped upholstery and stained bedding in the closets. The size and layout was great: large master suite with sitting area and two upstairs bedrooms. All en suite. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining room was cozy and family-friendly.

3/5 for the lodgings

The ‘Health Center’ swimming pool and gym was pretty bad. The saltwater pool was so cloudy you could not see the bottom. Paint was flaking off the walls and the family changing room was like an old scout hut. We went once, left quickly and didn’t go back. You’ll be paying an extra $50 per night for these ‘facilities’.

1/5 for the facilities

I wish we’d stayed at a nearby hotel and driven 20 minutes to the mountain. Staying on-resort at Club Sugarbush saved us 15 minutes, but cost a lot and there’s no benefit in resort facilities that are too horrible to use.
