VAIL – A cabane du sucre, or “sugar shack,” is a tradition featured prominently in Eastern Canada, but one that has now taken root at Four Seasons Resort Vail. Sugar shacks are small cabins where sap collected from sugar maple trees is boiled into maple syrup. Four Seasons Resort Vail brings a modern take to this classic tradition with its own version of cabane du sucre, located on the outdoor pool terrace. Instead of collecting syrup from trees, the resort collects fresh snow, and at the end of the 75-foot heated pool, situated by the roaring outdoor stone fireplace, the Sugar Shack station is set up.

Guests can warm up by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and the resort’s Sugar Shack lollipops. A wooden trough filled with Vail’s fresh snow is set in front of the fireplace. An attendant pours hot maple syrup onto the snow in crisp lines, and hand-rolls a maple syrup lollipop. Free hot chocolate also is provided. Servers wear winter jackets and white fur hats.

The Sugar Shack is offered poolside daily from 3-5 pm as a free service to Four Seasons Resort Vail guests.

VAIL – Four Seasons Resort Vail has a new program called the Epic Teen Apres Ski.

In addition to a separate teen center, which boasts games such as billiards, air hockey, Nintendo Wii, two computers and more, the Epic Teen program at Four Seasons Resort Vail provides teens with an opportunity to mix and mingle with each other, discuss their day on the slopes, enjoy some fun and games and perhaps even learn a thing or two.

The resort has a Teen Concierge who attends the scheduled Epic Teen Apres Ski mixers, typically held on Friday and Saturday nights from 4-6 p.m. The Teen Concierge offers tips and fun facts about the mountain trails, happenings around Vail, input on the latest snowboard gear and more, while teens enjoy treats such as hot chocolate, soda and popcorn.
