Carrabassett Valley Academy’s Kate Webber Punderson remembers when we had these races at Sugarloaf when she was a kid; now this next generation can see it, too, except not here.. down country next weekend.

Look who we ran into at the Pines!?! Sandy & her wicked cute FRIENDS from Tea Pond!

Another of our Region’s real gems. As if the food, drinks, atmosphere & friendly people weren’t enough, this adorable Golden family alone is worth the wee ride out to Tea Pond’s “Off the Beaten Path” Restaurant & Pub!! Bonus time open as long as we can keep spring at bay; as long as the snow […]

Carrabassett Valley Bike… not too early to think about the MTB season ahead here in the capitol of Maine MTB scene!

How We Do It. From the grassroots growth of MTBing in CV… no years of planning around a table, no Gov’t Ec Development instigation, indeed, the many locals like Bob Ash who worked to make it possible to share their passion for MTBing with others, have subsequently created a whole new dynamic for economic opportunity […]

Carrabassett Valley’s Town Meeting Wed. Mar. 13, 2019

The purest form of democracy! Most of our town’s property owners are not actually residents, so we record our Town Meetings for taxpayers to know what the money is going towards in CV! Not a bad showing of locals in a Town of 781! Never seen Dave blush so much as when we all sang […]

It’s almost spring, & that means it’s time for Snowmakers’ Ball at Sugarloaf

If you’re inclined to be easily offended, skip this one… all bets are off for the shinanigans we used to get up to create our videos for the most important social event of the year, for the Mtn’s Ops crew at the end of every season since 1983. This video is from ’85. This is […]

Update on CV matters w/ Town Meeting coming up on March 13

Carrabassett Valley is unique in so many ways with its incorporation coming after the Mountain became a ski area; so we tend to look at things differently than the average NE Town even tho that most prized of representations of true democracy, the good old fashioned New England Town Meetings which are part of the […]
