We’re sorry, but the days have been just too cold for foresters to collect any sap; the sugarhouse will not be open on Saturday. There’s still a chance for Sunday, though. Call the forestry office (860-542-5422) and listen to their Sunday-morning recording to find out if they’ll be boiling on Sunday afternoon. You can also check out our Last-Minute Updates page for the latest on this and other events.
Mother Nature permitting, here’s a chance to visit the Great Mountain Forest sugarhouse and see how sap is boiled down to make maple syrup…you might even get a sample! The season has to cooperate and the times often change, so check back here for updates or call the forestry office (860-542-5422) before going; they will have a message giving status and hours. Even if it is not open, you can enjoy skiing or hiking the forest trails that start near the sugarhouse whatever the weather.
