Overall

4

Sugarloaf is the largest ski resort in Maine and the second largest in New England with over 1,240 ac of skiing trails, glades, and side country terrain. Sugarloaf is located on Maine’s second highest peak, 4,237 ft, with Maine’s tallest vertical of 2,820 ft. Sugarloaf is a cult phenomenon among passionate skiers, it’s hard to get to and hard to forget…a big beautiful mountain with a great base village full of loyal Loaf fans that like to party après ski. What’s unique about Sugarloaf, besides its remote location in the Carrabassett Valley, is the breathtaking views from the bold windblown summit, and the above tree line skiing from the summit, called Sugarloaf snowfields when the snow is good.

I had a phenomenal time at Sugarloaf, granted the resort is far away, the skiing culture and friendly atmosphere is unparalleled anywhere else i've been, even at a peak time of the season the slopes were still not that crowded. Their is plenty to do here that one can spend multiple if not weeks here and not get bored. Sugarloaf is arguably one of... More

Amazing terrain, excellent snow, plenty of lift capacity and Bullwinkles for refreshments. While it can get cold and there maybe the occasional lift wind hold the experience and the views are more than worth it. I've skied all over the country and in Europe and the Loaf is a beast of the skiing universe!... More

My home mountain the loaf. Awesome community, friendly people, and amazing snowboarding to be had. Remember to bring layers it can get cold up there, but with world class terrain it’s worth it. Warm up with the best pizza and beer I know and the bag. Going out go hit up the rack for some live music and drinks. Just as fun at the loaf in the summer... More

I can't explain why but I just don't get good vibes here. It's very crowded, lifts are crappy, parking sucks. Save your money and go to Sunday river instead. They also brag about lift serviced above tree line skiing, which is never open and not real above tree line.... More

Best terrain the entire east coast offers!! An absolute must for any serious/advanced skier on the east coast. Rarely crowded, the secluded resort of Sugarloaf offers a break from the long lift lines of other New England resorts. Beautiful scenery, unreal glades, great snow, fantastic dining, but bring layers because it can get cold.... More

While it not a very accessible resort requiring a minimum 4 hour drive from the nearest airport, that is what makes other aspects of this place worth it. Set in the Maine Wilderness, there is much terrain to explore and fun to be had. When conditions allow, the lift accessible above tree line snow fields is the only terrain of it's kind on the East...

I've been going to this resort for the past 5 years. It's a great mountain to learn and become very experienced. The resort staff is great and helpful. The resort can become packed during weekends but overall lifts lines can move quickly. ... More
