Sugarbush Acquires Blue Tooth and adds World Cup Freestyle Skier Babic

first_imgSugarbush Resort announced that it has acquired the Blue Tooth, a Warren restaurant and bar located on the Sugarbush Access Road.Formerly owned and operated by Hobs Moyer for more than 20 years, the Blue Tooth was built by Tom Storrs in 1963. Once named one of the top ten ski resort nightclubs in the country, the Blue Tooth has a rich history as part of the Mad River Valley apres-ski scene of the 1960’s through 1980’s.According to Sugarbush president and general manager Bob Ackland, the resort plans to add “new life” to the restaurant without making large changes in the immediate future. Sugarbush’s acquisition of the property is intended to provide more diversity for on-mountain entertainment.“We plan to make small but noticeable changes immediately,” said Ackland. “A new menu was created and we will continue with the tradition of casual dining. We’ll also continue with the apres-ski traditions that made the Blue Tooth famous—free popcorn and hot soup as well as live music.”Sugarbush Resort is also pleased to announce that it has added World Cup Freestyle Skier David Babic to its corps of Sugarbush Ambassadors. Babic, a native of Washington, Vermont, is a member of the 2003 U.S. Freestyle Ski Team. He appears in the new Warren Miller film, “Storm.” As a member of the Sugarbush Celebrity Ambassador Team, Babic will make appearances at Sugarbush between competitions in the U.S. and abroad.In his first World Cup competition of the season in Tignes, France, Babic placed sixth overall. He qualified for the event’s finals with a run that included an off-axis 720 on the bottom jump. In the finals, Babic was one of only two skiers to perform a newly allowed off-axis jump in competition. According to Babic, “I stomped the landing and the crowd erupted. This 6th place finish in my first competition of the season was a welcome result after intensive off-season preparation.” Babic now looks forward to competitions in Italy and Finland. “I am proud and thrilled to represent Sugarbush and Vermont as I compete on the World Cup Circuit,” Babic noted.“David Babic will be a wonderful addition to our already spectacular team of Ambassadors,” noted Sugarbush President Bob Ackland. “We look forward to his visits to the resort. David will present clinics which our guests can attend. He’ll also perform some of his stunning big air moves live for our guests. This harks back to Sugarbush’s glory days when Stein Eriksen would perform his trademark aerial somersaults right behind the base lodge.”last_img read more
