Come ski the east with Saint Michael’s College!

No matter your skiing or snowboarding speed, you’ll find happy trails at the mountain run by skiers for skiers at Sugarbush Ski Resort, thanks to the St. Mike’s Ski and Ride Pass.

Just one hour from campus, Sugarbush is a world-class resort that boasts 111 trails, 28 wooded areas, 3 terrain parks and 2,600 feet of vertical! With two mountains to choose from – Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen – there are plenty of options for the experienced and new skiers and riders.

There are a few options for those interested in the Ski and Ride program.

The Value Pass is $115.00 and gets a student unlimited access to Mt. Ellen and access to Lincoln Peak mid-week for less than the cost of a one-day lift ticket. Value pass holders can also ski Lincoln Peak in the early and late season.

The Premium Pass is $200.00 and offers holders unlimited access to all the skiing and riding at Mt. Ellen and Lincoln Peak!

(Prices are valid for the 2023/24 season and do not include 6% Vermont sales tax. Season passes are non-refundable.)

In addition, Sugarbush and the College’s Adventure Sports Center have teamed up to offer a Learn to Ski/Ride Program! For $75.00 newcomers to the sport can take four lessons, which includes rentals and a ride to the mountain. After completing the two days of training, students will receive a Sugarbush season pass so that they can show off their new skills!

Our ski pass program encourages our students to stay active while exploring Vermont’s natural beauty. The Adventure Sports Center provides free transportation to Sugarbush on the weekends and a virtual ride board for those heading to the mountain midweek!

Sugarbush pass sales occur from October 1 – December 1 annually.  Students will receive information through their email and are encouraged to follow @smcadventure on Instagram, like Saint Michael’s College Adventure Sports Center on Facebook and subscribe to the Sugarbush email list through the SMC Portal for more information.
