In 2001, Summit Ventures, a business enterprise between local residents Win Smith and Adam Greshin, purchased Sugarbush Resort. The resort includes two mountain areas, a fully appointed Health and Recreation 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.
Both Win and Adam remain very involved in the community. Win has served as chair of the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce and is current vice-chair of the Vermont Business Roundtable. He also serves on the boards of the Vermont Ski Areas Association and Nation Ski Areas Association. Along with board memberships including the Warren School Board and, formerly, the Mad River Valley Health Center Board, Adam is the State Representative for Washington County, which includes Duxbury, Fayston, Moretown, Waitsfield and Warren.
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. Rice Brook Residences, 15 whole ownership townhomes and condominiums were completed in 2013 to help tie together historic Sugarbush Village and the new Lincoln Peak Village. Gadd Brook Residences, another mix of private, slopeside two-,three-, and four-bedroom privately-owned condominiums is set to begin construction this summer.
We attended a fall wedding here. the setting was perfect on a mountain. we took the elevator up to the mountain for the ceremony. The resort people were nice. view from the mountain was nice. I am sure it will be much nicer in winter for skiing.
I just had the worst experience possible at this resort. I wanted to purchase Season Passes for the upcoming ski season. I called with a few general questions before I spend over $2,500, I wanted to know projected opening date and a few other general questions. The front desk receptionist was completely rude, his name was Allen at the Clay Brook Front Desk. Allen told me he was busy and had no time to answer my questions and hung the phone on me. I called back and said I understood he is busy and asked if he could please call me back if I give him my phone number. Allen informed me he did not have time. So I asked for the contact information to his boss which he informed me that he doesn't answer to anyone. After arguing with Allen for a few minutes he finally transferred me to his manager and I left a message. I would rather spend the extra $1,000 to ski at Stowe or Killington before I ever give any money to this resort. I have been skiing for the last 30 years all over the country and I have never had an experience like this before. Truly horrible!!!!

Breathtaking mountain top views from the chairlift. Hike up or down or ride up or down. Here come the fall leaves. The lift operators were very attentive to our comings and goings! Wonderful experience on a beautiful early fall day.
Sugarbush is definitely my favorite Eastern resort. Everyone is really friendly, the ticket prices are lower than many places, you have two whole mountains to ski on, the terrain is exciting for the East, and the tree skiing is great! The lodge is nice and après gets fun here!
I was at Sugarbush for the annual pond skimming event and it was awesome. It was very well organized and extremely fun, I would recommend this to anybody.
