Gauge headwall pre winch cats….

Some of Sugarloaf’s finest red jackets among the skiers in this vintage (1980?) clip from the headwall of Narrow Gauge WAY before Cribworks was cut to skier’s left. This is in pretty good shape compared to some days when VW sized moguls with ice troughs made things interesting w/ my old 215s…. A good skier […]

Stub in action… sort of!

Stub in action… sort of!

I am knocking on wood that this was/will be the one & only Tobo ride I ever take! Skip my bad acting & watch Stub doing what he did better than anyone else! & head first, Nicko’s smooth driving down that hump on Comp Hill, was a hoot….. I wonder how many injured skiers experienced […]

Stub Taylor

Stub Taylor

Few of us have the chance to know & work with people who are game-changers, yet super humble, serious about their work, but never taking themselves too seriously. Stub faced any & every challenge with grit & determination, yet a softness that was of such comfort to the injured skiers whose aide he came to, […]

“Sugarloaf: The Experience” from the archives

Brud Folger’s film “Sugarloaf: The Experience” is one of several gems in our archives that we are privileged to share, which he produced with various people in the ’60s.

Taken at the legendary Dump Party up the Carriage Rd. from the Red Stallion, a few of these faces can still be […]

Old Golf Course Propaganda… multi-generation video copy ‘cuz Master is LONG gone…

Old Golf Course Propaganda… multi-generation video copy ‘cuz Master is LONG gone…

This was one of the early golf course promotion videos produced when we (WSKI) were employees of the Sugarloaf Marketing Dept.. Too bad quality is so poor, but still of interest as we look back at the development of Sugarloaf as a year round destination…. & WSKI’s part in bringing this Mtn’s assets to light […]

Founders’ Night at the Inn long ago…..

Founders’ Night at the Inn long ago…..

Seems appropriate that on the closing weekend of a stellar season, we give a nod to the Founders of our Mtn. whose blood, sweat, &/or hard cash turned the steep slopes & forest into terrain thousands enjoy year after year! From local kids carving first tracks after they literally made the trails, to State business […]

Spring is Sugarloaf’s special season. Has been since long before reggae: Stan Leen’s Easter Party footage from the past

Hands down, the best party of the year at Sugarloaf was thanks to the generosity of one of our Mountain’s real Legends, Stan Leen of Bangor! His punch that went down like lemonade on a spring day was a real equalizer; old or young, expert or beginner, no talk of how long how anyone had […]
