Wooded areas are like normal pistes but they are managed differently.
At Sugarbush, wooded areas are patrolled and maintained by the resort and are put on the map like normal trails.
But they are not opened or closed, the skier decides if it is skiable.
This means wooded areas may have unmarked obstacles and snow conditions may be variable without warning.
Skiers need to be prepared for anything when entering.
Graduation Woods are fairly easy, lower mountain hardwood glades.
They are extremely short, ending not far from where they started on Graduation.
This makes them a good place to learn to tree ski.
These woods can be variable in late season, since they are at low elevation.
