Gear Stolen From Sugarbush Employees After COVID-19 Closure

A group of employees from Sugarbush Resort in Warren, Vermont had their ski and snowboard equipment stolen this past week after the mountain shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to a report from Vermont Public Radio (VSP), the employees believe that the lift operations locker room was robbed sometime between this past Wednesday afternoon and Thursday night. Equipment from fourteen lift operators, as well as hand sanitizer from the guest service area, have been reported as missing.

"We have lost everything from snowboards and skis to boots [and] poles," lift operator Sarah Welch told VSP. "The thieves entered our lockers and stole helmets, goggles, gloves, coats," she said, "they pretty much pillaged the locker room."

The group has put together a list of the stolen equipment, which the group hopes will help identify and assist in getting the gear returned. Please, take a look at the list and if you do see any equipment being sold matching that which is described, please notify the Vermont State Police.

In the meantime, Vermont Ski + Ride Magazine has set up a Go Fund Me page in an attempt to raise the money needed to replace what was stolen from the Sugarbush employees.
