Terrain Parks - Sugarbush

Rider's Guide

Sugarbush has become somewhat of a haven for snowboarders in the area. SKI magazine has awarded Sugarbush the #1 spot for terrain variety in the East and boarders can expect to find over 500 acres of land at the resort, as well as 111 trails of varying degrees of difficulty. 16 separate lifts take visitors up through some 2,600 feet of vertical to some of the most challenging runs in the state, including the Heaven’s Gate Triple and the Northway.

Parks and Pipes

Mount Ellen, one of the 6 mountains of the resort provides the terrain park for Sugarbush. The park is massive and even has its own completely dedicated lift. The park has 50 different features and is growing every year. One recent feature is a sweet 3' flat to 28' down 4" round street rail from Guru and more features are being added all the time. Sugarbush’s dedicated staff are working non-stop to make the park even more legendary than it already is. They also offer private one on one lessons with pro park riders with an emphasis on style, progression and safety, no matter the experience level.

Out of Bounds

The Sugarbush Sports Center has exercise facilities and there is shopping, dining and drinking also located at the resort. Those who want more outdoor activities can take a sleigh ride, ice skate, snowcat or skijor all within a mile or so of the mountain.

Hangout & Hookup

Sugarbush’s slope side has some wonderful après ski spots like The Castlerock Pub, The Green Mountain Lounge and Wunderbar. Just around the corner in neighboring Warren visitors will find The Common Man and the Pitcher Inn, each provide local, seasonal cuisine and an impressive array of wines and microbrews. General Stark’s Pub and Hyde Away are two additional spots that are popular with locals and offer a lively après ski environment. Accommodation can be found slopeside or a few miles away in Warren and Waitsfield. Lodging ranges from budget hotels, romantic bed and breakfasts, and historic inns to beautifully converted Vermont farmhouses.
