I just planned a trip to Sugarbush for MLK weekend and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do it and also ski Mad River. It's 2 skiers, 2 boarders and none of us have ever been to either resort. How should we do it?
1. What should we ski at Sugarbush if we like bumps and trees? I understand Castlerock and Ellen are must skis, anything else?
2. How bad will the lift lines be at MRG? We're planning on skiing Saturday, Sunday, & Monday. I REALLY want to ski MRG but I've read that the single chair lines can reach 1 hour on holidays. Is this true? Anyone with experience there on MLK weekend?
3. What is the real story with the frozen waterfall on Paradise? I've watched a few youtube videos of the run and at no point do I see the waterfall. I can't tell whether it's mandatory and/or how high it actually is.
4. Final question - recently sold my skis and I'll want to rent demos for the trip. Any recommendations on where to do it? Does the rental place at Sugarbush base have a decent selection? Yes, I know base rentals are most expensive but since we're traveling as a group with one car I don't know how much flexibility I'll have. Anything good on the access road (staying at a hotel there)?
