WARREN, Vt. – Sugarbush Resort is hosting a series of uphill travel events and parties at Mt. Ellen through the rest of the 2018/19 winter season.
The events include Tour de Moon and Mt. Ellen After Dark, each scheduled on the following Saturdays: Feb. 16, March 2, and March 16. Events are free and open to the public with food and drink available for purchase.
Each Tour de Moon consists of a moonlit skin or snowshoe up Mt. Ellen to Walt’s at the Glen House. Walt’s will be serving gourmet grilled cheese, local craft beers, and drinks until 8 p.m., at which point guests can ski down on designated routes. Guests can choose to skin or snowshoe themselves, but a guided hike will leave the base of Mt. Ellen at 4 p.m. Alpine touring equipment is available through VT North Ski Shop and Clearwater Sports and snowshoe rentals are available through Sugarbush.
Mt. Ellen After Dark occurs after each Tour de Moon with a party from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. in the Green Mountain Lounge at the base of Mt. Ellen. The bar will be open and serving along with free pizza, swag raffles, and music provided by DJ Chris Logan.
