Weekly Dawn Patrol Uphill Resort Skin - Advanced

Skiers and riders will meet at either Sugarbush or Mad River Glen in the wee hours of the morning to rise and rip!

See our Difficulty Rating System ( to determine if MRVBC’s tours are the right fit for you.  This will be an intermediate uphill pace, not a race!  The downhill could be advanced terrain depending on conditions and route.  Come prepared with knowledge of your own gear as this is not instruction, but it is a great way to meet people, get some amazing exercise and fresh air views, and swap BC stories! 

Participation Limit: none
