Sugarbush Lift Tickets

This is one of the largest and most diverse ski mountains in Vermont. It features two main basins that are connected by a high-speed quad, and there is an abundance of expert terrain here. Tickets are priced in the high-end, but this is a place where you get your money’s worth for the price. All skiers and riders must purchase an RFID card ($5) and this allows you to buy discounted passes online in advance.
