Today I wanted to push myself physically, so I decided to run up Sugarbush to the Long Trail. I parked in front of Claybrook and started running up Racer's Edge to the top of Lincoln Peak. 40 minutes and 2600 vertical feet later, I was standing on top of the ridge of the Green Mountains looking down at the Mad River Valley. Below me were the trails of Sugarbush winding their way down the uneven terrain, all meeting at the base which looked tiny so far away. I thought about how lucky I am to live in Vermont and how adventure is literally right outside my door. The Green Mountains are a playground 365 days a year. Enjoy our Spotlight on how adventure comes alive in the summer at the Sugarbush Resort. I will be taking an ice bath resting my legs.
