Thrilled to be able to highlight Sugarbush Resort today, one of the more popular eastern resorts located in the Mad River Valley in Warren, Vermont. If you took a look at yesterday’s Sugarbush jobs and want to know a little more about what sets Sugarbush Resort apart …
* Cat Skiing in the east!
Sugarbush bought a 12-passenger Pisten Bully cabin cat last year. The “Lincoln Limo”, as it has come to be known, transports guests up to the mid-mountain Allyn’s Lodge for specialty dinners and full-moon skiing and snowshoeing.
“But the real fun comes on powder days when the first 12 people to show up at Guest Services by 6:45 a.m. (or who call the night before) get to own the mountain until the lifts spin. The Lincoln Limo also makes us the only resort in the East to have cat skiing.”
* Expanded Terrain
75 acres of new wooded terrain at both Mt. Ellen and Lincoln Peak, creating new challenges and experiences for guests as well as removing the “fear factor” from wooded skiing and riding.
* SugarTube Video Sharing Platform, Ski and Ride School
Instructors will video lessons and then post the clips on private personal accounts created for guests of the Ski and Ride School. Using telestrating tools (think NFL instant replay) and voice over, instructors will analyze the lessons and offer tips on improvement. Skiers and riders will then receive video postcards of their lessons and have access to the on-line tools, and can ask the instructor questions via webcam or e-mail.
- The National Ski Areas Association honored Sugarbush with its national award for delivering the “Best Guest Service.”
- OnTheSnow.com – one of the most widely viewed ski & ride web sites – gives annual awards based on customer reviews. There, Sugarbush was voted “Favorite Overall Resort in the Northeast.”
- The Vermont Chamber of Commerce has named Sugarbush Chef Gerry Nooney Chef of the Year. The award recognizes Nooney’s history of supporting Vermont’s agricultural economy through the use of local food and products. The Vermont Hospitality Council, the tourism division of the VCC that oversees the state’s hospitality awards, will officially honor Nooney at its gala dinner on Wednesday, September 16 at The Essex, Vermont’s Culinary Resort & Spa.
Although I spent plenty of time in Vermont throughout my childhood, I hadn’t discovered the Mad River Valley until the spring of last year. As you can tell from my experience there, I more than enjoyed myself and when I checked the Mad River Valley website today, felt this was well worth repeating,
“…an authentic ski town flair – breathtaking and easy-going all at once, yet rich with diversions for every taste. Best of all, we’ve got an uncanny ability to make you feel welcome, no matter where you turn. The Mad River Valley – our vibe is hard to define, and impossible to forget.”
Authentic …. our vibe hard to define, and impossible to forget, so true.
