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.
Watt’s Woods starts to skiers right of Watt’s Trail and winds through the woods, before reconnecting to Watt’s Trail.
The terrain is very easy as you would expect from a glade starting and ending on a green run.
Due to its low elevation, this can be variable in late season.
Watt’s Woods is not long or difficult enough to be a “destination run” on powder days, so it generally stays fresh.
