Why choose this resort?
Providing the only above tree-line skiing on the east coast and the most continuous vertical in New England, Sugarloaf Resort mountains high standards to match its impressive statistics. Set in the heart of the Carrabassett Valley, Sugarloaf stretches out across 1,056 acres including Maine’s second highest peak. 161 runs provide long groomed trails supported by a 50% snowmaking capability and over 5 metres of average annual snowfall. With plenty of away-day alternatives, including shopping in Maine Mall and history tours in Boston, there’s plenty to look forward to both on and off the slopes.
On the slopes
Thanks to its enviable location at the centre of Maine’s Western Mountains, Sugarloaf promises plenty of skiing for everyone with an even distribution of slopes to suit all levels of ability. Those venturing onto the slopes for the first time will be mastering the fundamental skills in no time with a quarter of the slopes dedicated to beginners. Intermediates skiers will have the pick of the slopes with over 50 runs to choose and a whole host of blues dotted across Whiffletree. Experts will find almost half of the available runs offer up a challenge with trips to Skyline and Snowfields Summit providing some testing terrain. As all slopes are funnelled directly back to base, getting orientated is pretty straight forward too and skiing continues late into the season. Snowboarders aren’t left out either as there are 3 terrain parks and 2 half-pipes providing access to ramps, jibs, rails and Pipe Dreams’ Superpipe.
