Located just seven minutes from campus at Sugarbush Resort’s Mt. Ellen, the Kelly Brush Race Arena provides an unparalleled training venue for Gumbies of all ages and abilities.

Inverness and Brambles, two of the most highly coveted trails on Mt. Ellen, are almost always closed to the general public and used almost exclusively for GMVS training or racing. Private lift access to two dedicated U.S. Ski & Snowboard and FIS homologated training trails (Inverness and Brambles) provides athletes with innumerable training permutations — from full length GS to slalom drill courses on either steeps or flats. With its challenging terrain and extensive snowmaking capacity, KBRA often hosts U.S. Ski & Snowboard regional projects and several top NCAA collegiate teams. In 2017, the Sugarbush Resort was designated as a U.S. Ski & Snowboard High Performance Development Site.

Additional Features of the Kelly Brush Race Arena:

  • Warming buildings at the top and mid-run with a clubhouse conveniently located at the base

  • Dedicated snow making ensures great early season training
  • Strong relationship with Sugarbush Resort, a U.S. Ski & Snowboard High Performance Development Site
  • Phenomenal freeskiing opportunities at Mt. Ellen, Lincoln Peak, and Mad River Glen
