Sugarbush vs. Smuggs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
For the past 2 years RIT (my college) has had a trip to Smuggs in late January. It's been good, and worth the cost.

This year they are going to Sugarbush, and the cost has risen to $150. This should (I haven't verified yet) include bus transportation, 2 lift tickets and meals. Last year the meal quality was poor @ Smuggs..

Worth it? Discuss.

SB has some really awesome terrain and is bigger and has more variety than Smuggs. You should go.

What about lodging?

if that includes lodging, yes, it is worth it.

Not to hijack this thread, but -- I was considering taking my son to either Sugarbush or Sugarloaf for his Spring break (latter part of March). Which is better? I haven't been to either one, but have been to SN.

Yeah, I push Smuggs a lot, but their meal isn't why.

Bigger yes. But, better variety, I entirely disagree. You don't know what you're talking about. If you say different, then I withdraw my objection.

Well here's some more info about the trip:

They are going to Smuggs again. Signup started at 10am today, and they had 2 tour buses worth of space. I made it in to the office at 11:45, and there were 20 spots open.

I've kind of seen enough of Smuggs, and after last years poor meals (think spaghetti dinner and frozen/fried breakfasts, complete with instant eggs) plus the clique atmosphere of this whole trip, i elected to pass.

I can't speak for the food or the atmosphere on your trip, but unless you've been toured around by locals for about a week or so I can safely bet that you haven't "seen enough of Smuggs." There is A LOT of killer terrain on that mountain, and most of it isn't on the map!

JPH is absolutely correct!

Let me qualify, their Top of the Notch concession stand setup has some pretty good prewrapped item. Other than that, pretty run of the mill.

sounds like a good deal at the bush.
