In 2001, Summit Ventures, a business enterprise between local residents Win Smith and Adam Greshin, purchased Sugarbush Resort. Located in Warren, Vermont, in the Mad River Valley, the resort boasts 2600' of vertical, 4000 acres, 111 trails, and more than 20 wooded areas on the trail maps. The resort includes two mountain areas, a fully appointed Health and Racquet Club, multiple lodging options, Sugarbush Resort Golf Club, an array of dining venues and more. Year-round, the resort staffs approximately 450 employees, and in the height of the winter season employees close to 1,000.
Beginning in 2005, Sugarbush embarked on an ambitious revitalization project that saw the completion of Lincoln Peak Village. Clay Brook Hotel and Residences and the Gate House Lodge were completed in December of 2006. Two skier services buildings, the Farmhouse and Schoolhouse, were completed in December of 2010. The second phase of construction is now underway at Lincoln Peak Village. The new Rice Brook Residences, 15 whole ownership townhomes and condominiums, tie together historic Sugarbush Village and the new Lincoln Peak Village and mark an important step in our long-term vision for Sugarbush Resort.
The Green Mountain State’s agricultural heritage, its steadfast citizens and diverse landscape have fostered a way of life that is very much alive today with vibrancy revealed in an innate respect for community, land and holding true to our character while also warmly welcoming innovation and new, friendly faces. Vermont still holds its cheesemakers, sugarmakers, dairymen and women, brewers and vintners in the highest regard. You’ll see this,especially during Harvest Season, when the ingredients are local, the producers are inspired and the food is internationally respected. Vermont entices with open exploration of its valleys – as they reveal a world of small farms, steepled villages, peaceful pastimes and outdoor pursuits: farmers’ markets, apple orchards and corn mazes await. Come to enjoy crisp mornings with warm cider next to fiery red and orange mountainsides. Come to rest, rejuvenate and play – and definitely, come hungry.
