More from the Archives….”Won’t you become a familiar face here with us?”

Another Saturday for memories… rain down country, snow here, Snowmaking starts up tonight for the duration w/ Opening next weekend! Many thanks to Brud Folger for the footage from late sixties? Old Valley Crossing look familiar?? Parker’s narration is still spot on. From the stretch pants, to Harry & Martha Baxter & John Christie’s skiing […]

An interview with Amos Winter! Priceless though brief. And more early skiing, love the cruising down Sluice … so much to love about this old footage. The area businesses from Kingfield to Eustis all presented together as part of the offerings to attract visitors here more than 50 years ago. The more things change, the […]

We finally got the 16 mm projector set up to have a look at the footage ChipChop had stored in his barn in Kingfield. We are happy to share with our viewers both Channel 17 & world wide. Love the comment about John Christie, who was indeed one of the best/prettiest skiers this mountain has […]

Upper Winter’s Way in the early 1980s……

Homecoming means catching up with friends, tall tales of old are told, memories shared of past snow adventures with hopes for the ones to come to be as Epic as ever! Here’s some fairly old footage from Spillway cross-cut & summit to 5-side.. I think most of these guys still ski here, I know one […]

Local talent in old White White World Week Bartenders’ Race

Can’t resist sharing this from WSKI’s Archives. Once upon a time, W4 was a week of shear determination & endurance, & I don’t mean in the same way as the Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge.

While we dream of a new lift sooner than later, …

Stub spoke with WSKI a few years back

Stub Taylor cut trails on Sugarloaf Mtn. as a teenager under the direction of Amos Winter, & went on to be the head of the Ski Patrol for the better part of a half century.

Homage to the demise of the long time Sugarloaf tradition of an Easter Parade…

Homage to the demise of the long time Sugarloaf tradition of an Easter Parade…

Used to be a big part of the Easter Holiday’s huge celebration at the Mtn. over the decades; from the adults who started with epic efforts 50 years ago, to the hundreds, probably thousands of kids who participated in the Annual Easter Parade as part of the Mountain Magic activities over the decades…. very sad […]

Wind Holds. Ski areas’ most hated conditions report!

Wind Holds. Ski areas’ most hated conditions report!

Here’s an old video on what the process entails before any lifts have to be shut down, something no ski area ever wants to do, but most have to from time to time, including us: at 4237 feet, our big mountain is often a big target for breezes, too! Safety may seem too overblown, but […]
