I am one of a lucky few who live on the route of the Sherwood Shuttle. I took advantage of the shuttle today and walked out of my house in ski boots and hopped on the 9 am shuttle as it went past my house. The shuttle runs on Saturdays and Sundays and leaves from the parking lot across the street from Sunnyside Resort. Anyone can ride it and they even sell tickets on the bus. It drops you off right at the Sherwood lift and is a hassle free way to start and finish your day on the slopes. It runs up the hill at 9 and 10 am, and runs down the hill at 2, 3,and 4 pm. While I may live on the route, there’s nothing to stop you from enjoying this free service, especially if you are staying on the west shore.
On a side note, the snow at Alpine is fantastic. The storms just keep on coming…. Here are a few clips from today, Sunday 2/6/2010. I found some great snow in the lesser traveled nooks and crannies and enjoyed a shuttle ride right to my house. It doesn’t get any better.
