    Thanksgiving Weekend in VT 
    Thurs-Sun, Nov 23-26

    Swiss Ski Club long-standing tradition - Thanksgiving weekend with friends and family in our cozy lodge, including a traditional turkey dinner.  Everybody is welcome!

    For all levels of skiers and snowboarders, Sugarbush should be open, and if skiing on natural snow is your thing, check the conditions at Mad River Glen, too. We've had some wonderful skiing fun this time of year.
