Overview

Sugarloaf is the largest ski resort in New England and east of the Rockies for that matter, by acreage, with over 1,056 acres of skiing trails, glades, and side country terrain. Sugarloaf is located on Maine’s second highest peak, 4,237’, with Maine’s tallest vertical of 2,820.’ 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.

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... More

What an incredible place to ski. One of the steepest and most challenging resorts in the east. If you're lucky enough to ski the snowfields on a powder day, you would think you're in Utah
