Today Sugarbush is owned and operated by Summit Ventures NE, LLC, as partnership of a few individuals which is majority owned by Win Smith, Jr. All investors in Summit Ventures are skiers and riders and devoted to the long-term success of the Mad River Valley and Sugarbush. They have a vision for the Resort that is very much the way Damon & Sarah Gadd and Jack Murphy envisioned it nearly 49 years ago. They believe that life is truly better here in the Mad River Valley.
They are committed to making Sugarbush a better place, and they believe that guests can become better too at the things they love doing here. Since acquiring the Resort in 2001, the Castlerock and Green Mountain Express chairlifts were replaced, the snowmaking system continues to be upgraded each year, new grooming equipment has been purchased, the famed Robert Trent Jones Golf course has been significantly upgraded, and the new Gate House Lodge was completed in December 2006.
The Sugarbush Health & Racquet Club is a fully appointed year round sports and massage center located adjacent to the base area at Lincoln Peak. If you are looking to play, work out, have fun with the kids, or simply relax, the club will have an activity or service for you. We offer an indoor (year round) and outdoor (seasonal) pool, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, cardio and weight equipment plus free weights, squash, racquetball, and indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a rock-climbing gym, ping-pong, half-court basketball, fitness, yoga, and tennis classes throughout the week, a co-ed steam room, and complete locker rooms with a dry-heat sauna in each.
