    I’ve skied all of the major ski areas in New England, and many of the non-majors, as well as having skied out West, in Europe, and even heli-skied in New Zealand. For me, Sugarbush is unquestionably the best ski area in New England. It has the combination of the best terrain, reliably good conditions, super nice staff, and great restaurants. The fact that it doesn’t have the mega crowded conditions of many other areas results in more time spent on the slopes, not in lift lines, and just adds to the overall experience.

    After a VERY long car ride back home I had time to think about this review… To start I am an avid extreme hiker who’s summited the N.H. 4,000 footers and completed the AMC and threshold NH summits. After that I perused Vermont and I’ve successfully hiked all but Mt. Ellen & Abraham. As a Senior at Plymouth State University majoring in Business administration and minoring in Professional communications I was shocked and appalled at how they treated me. Discussing this trip with fellow AMC members and past hikers who’ve hiked these summits claim its possible to climb up from the ski lodge at Sugarbush. I was directed to the north side were a man acted as those he didn’t know why I was there. I would have hiked the Lincoln gap or the Appalachian gap but due to the winter conditions they were closed. Coming from Plymouth NH, there is no other way to summit these two unless. You drive 1+ hr each way around the peaks. I politely asked two gentlemen at both lodges and apparently after 3+ hours of driving EACH WAY I was forced to turn back. I was told by the director of the AMC himself I COULD hike the lower F.I.S trail to the summit IF I gave the staff notice and stayed close to the edge of the trail. When I talked to the person in charge they said the trail was closed to the public and id have to pay a $68 fee to CLIMB the peak! He said due to the liability of the mountain…. understandable to a point. But making me pay $68 fee to climb the peak regardless of me getting sock, lost, etc. That’s my own fault and that wouldn’t benefit the mountain any (besides putting the money in their pockets). Regardless of this I was mistreated two times by staff and once by a resort clear… After wasting $200+ on gas, food, and other expenses I am offended by sugarbush policies and I advise people reading to know I don’t get upset easy, and this is not a joke! Ive summited 198 peak throughout New England 22 of those being ski mountains, I’ve never been rejected in my 5 years of climbing. So in conclusion I advise the reader to not go to sugarbush but to a much nice mountain were people treat you better!

    I just wanted to say how amazing the staff is at Sugarbush. My first day with my wife and she had never skied before. This year I bought her a seasons pass and decided she needed to become a full fledged Vermonter. Imagine my surprise when after the first day, an ambassador came up to me and told me to go to the seasons pass office to exchange her current pass for one that was cheaper and came with 3 free lessons! Not only did I walk out $90 richer but my wife also got to learn from a professional. I’ve been to other local mountains and once they have your money its over, its so refreshing to see this level of service.

    On a good day, Sugarbush is a great ski resort. The layout is pretty good, and the trails are generally well maintained. The major drawbacks are that the lifts seem to break down more often than at other resorts of the same size and they don’t make snow all that often. I’ve had good and bad days here this season, but do not plan on renewing my season pass next year.

    The mountains are good but the service and resort experience was awful.Staff were very rude throughout our experience and we were given a dirty room upon arrival, which they did not apologize for or switch.I’m amazed that there are so many positive reviews but I suppose this is the fact of being from out of state. We were treated rude, unfairly, and stigmatized by racist bigots.I would never recommend this resort to anyone for there are many more in the area that you can get the exact same experience from.We planned on returning at another time prior to the experience but now we would never dream of doing so.
