It’s been a busy offseason over at Sugarbush Resort, as they’re working on a variety of important projects. A new Reverse Traverse trail is being sculpted this summer to improve the ease of access and add snowmaking. One of their other major projects is an extreme makeover: hotel edition.
On Friday, Sugarbush revealed its first major offseason project: the renovation of The Lodge at Lincoln Peak. Formerly known as The Sugar Lodge, the hotel is undergoing a renovation of well over $1 million.
Ten rooms have been fully renovated and reopened on Friday, while the others will be finished in the next couple of weeks. When the renovation is complete, twenty-two rooms and two suites will be modernized. The Black Sheep Bar, which opened last winter, will reopen within the next few months.
The next offseason appears to be another big one for Sugarbush. The Valley Reporter discovered back in June that the Vermont ski resort is aiming to replace the Heaven’s Gate chairlift. Heaven’s Gate will become a modern fixed-grip quad chairlift. This project isn’t definitive yet, as Sugarbush will need to secure the necessary permits promptly.
Still though, all of this shows that one of the best ski resorts in New England keeps getting better.
