was at sugarbush this weekend, nice hill in need of some lift upgrades, wow i loved the trails, i was flashing back to my recent trip at smuggler's notch. i dont get these so-called "resorts" where it 's all condos all the time. my suggestion is infrastructure, bring the hill up to spec then do the condo's. they closed castlerock peak around 1:00pm due to wind, they closed lincoln peak even earlier around 11:00 am. i only got to do organgrinder(great bumps) and spillsville before they closed it. so here's what i got to do in those short hours rumble(definitely the best run at sugarbush)/castlerock run/middle earth...then lift closed!. so at 2:00pm the only lift opened was called the valleyhouse double, ok no problem so i hit stein's run, great moguls on the left side; lexi twist, again nice mogul run, eden's woods which were a blast, as was the mall. what i don't understand is why they closed the lifts so earlier when the wind was not an issue by today's standards, but again with lifts from the 70's and 80's, obviously it was an issue. without being too negative, i loved the trails totally disliked old and slow moving lifts. i think a few high speed quad's are in order then build the condo's.
