In 2001, Summit Ventures, a business enterprise between local residents Win Smith and Adam Greshin, purchased Sugarbush Resort. The resort includes two mountain areas, a fully appointed Health and Recreation Club, multiple lodging options, Sugarbush Resort Golf Club, an array of dining venues and more. Year-round, the resort staffs approximately 450 employees, and in the height of the winter season employees close to 1,000.
Both Win and Adam remain very involved in the community. Win has served as chair of the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce and is current vice-chair of the Vermont Business Roundtable. He also serves on the boards of the Vermont Ski Areas Association and Nation Ski Areas Association. Along with board memberships including the Warren School Board and, formerly, the Mad River Valley Health Center Board, Adam is the State Representative for Washington County, which includes Duxbury, Fayston, Moretown, Waitsfield and Warren.
Beginning in 2005, Sugarbush embarked on an ambitious revitalization project that saw the completion of Lincoln Peak Village. Clay Brook Hotel and Residences and the Gate House Lodge were completed in December of 2006. Two skier services buildings, the Farmhouse and Schoolhouse, were completed in December of 2010. The second phase of construction is now underway at Lincoln Peak Village. Rice Brook Residences, 15 whole ownership townhomes and condominiums were completed in 2013 to help tie together historic Sugarbush Village and the new Lincoln Peak Village. Gadd Brook Residences, another mix of private, slopeside two-,three-, and four-bedroom privately-owned condominiums is set to begin construction this summer.
Fantastic layout with terrain for all skill levels. I spent the day “getting lost” skiing, which means high up on the mountain away from it all. Highly recommend taking Heavens Gate chair to the top and climbing up to the summit...today I was able to stand on top of a mountain. Breathtaking views.
Fantastic ski resort! Voted 2nd best resort in the East by ski magazine, and for good reason. The ski area is huge, with terrain for all abilities and high speed lifts to get you there fast. Top-notch snow-making means great conditions even early in the season! Come by, check it out, and be better here :)
Spent 4 days skiing at Sugarbush. Only offer day skiing. Lots of trails of different difficulties suitable for anyone. Pretty good conditions of the slopes while I was there. On last day when it was -25°C one of the lifts was closed due to the weather.
I love this place! Great place for couples or families. Great restaurants in area and beautiful scenery. I love the skiing here.
We attended a fall wedding here. the setting was perfect on a mountain. we took the elevator up to the mountain for the ceremony. The resort people were nice. view from the mountain was nice. I am sure it will be much nicer in winter for skiing.
