Sugarbush’s 60th anniversary continues with historic spring events

WARREN, Vt. – In celebration of its 60th anniversary, Sugarbush is bringing back a number of old historic events from the “March Madness” days of the resort.

On Sunday, March 10, Sugarbush is bringing back the Snow Golf Classic. This event takes place from 10 a.m. to noon at the top of the Gate House Quad. Competitors will test their driving range golf skills, aiming for hoops each worth varying amounts of points.

The Waiter Challenge makes its return Tuesday, March 12 at 3 p.m. Servers from around the valley will compete to carry trays full of water through an obstacle course in ski boots at the bottom of the Super Bravo Quad.

Sunday, March 31 brings Dummy Big Air back to Sugarbush after a several year hiatus. Competitors are encouraged to build dummies with skis to see whose will fly the furthest off a jump built at the bottom of Mt. Ellen. Following the event will be live music by The Detonators, from 3-6 p.m.

Finally, the longest continuously operating Pond Skimming event in North America returns Saturday, April 6 at Lincoln Peak. Registration for the event is from 9–11 a.m. in the Castlerock Pub with a cash only entry fee. The event is limited to the first 110 competitors.
