Grab both these 4,000' peaks on a long ridge above the Sugarbush Ski Resort with an optional ski descent. This is a fun ridge climb in winter or spring if you bring along a pair of skis for the descent. Once you climb up the ski slopes you'll be following the Long Trail over the ridge to get both Abraham and Ellen. You'll reach the top of Lincoln Peak first on your ascent above the highest chairlift at Sugarbush. You'll then follow the ridge south to the bare summit of Abraham then back north a long ways across the ridge to the wooded summit of Ellen above Mad River Glen ski resort. Don't go down these trails as you'll end up at the base of the wrong resort. Instead, trace your steps back along the ridge to POI #6 where you intersect the Sugarbush trails. Pick a trail from here, snap into your skis and head on down for a fun descent.
