While Sugarbush Resort may shine in the wintertime, the Mad River Valley is the perfect vacation spot in every season. People travel from across the United States to visit our charming valley in the autumn, which is the perfect time to spot stunning New England foliage. Spring brings lush green back to our forests, as well as a bit of warm-weather skiing. But Sugarbush is also a sough-after destination for summer getaways. Visitors of all ages can find something they enjoy; here are a few of our favorites.
