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 […]

Same Mountain, same Joy: 2017, 1984, 2018? No place like it, no place we’d rather call Home, year in, year out…

Same Mountain, same Joy: 2017, 1984, 2018? No place like it, no place we’d rather call Home, year in, year out…

Snowmaking & Grooming: CBB’s 1990 production Made in Maine

The technology has sure changed though the challenges of the elements of Sugarloaf’s winter weather & terrain will never make making snow or grooming it, easy.

More from Howard Nielsen’s reports on Boston TV in the 1970s

Looking back on the sport we love is an interesting deja vu to northern New Englanders whose social fabric & economies are affected by, at the least, & dependent at the most, on the inflow of money & jobs that a healthy ski resort brings to rural mountain communities. This piece from 1976 will have you either chuckling or crying […]

Crash on Chicken Pitch: From the Archives

Here’s some footage of Patrol doing their thing on the old Chicken Pitch on Tote… thinking that’s David Cuttler w/ empty tobo, Mark Leathers w/ the loaded one?

Horseback Riding behind Bigelow

Winterstick’s current Factory used to be the Golf Course’s original Clubhouse; who remembers when these horses were kept over on West Mtn, too, as an additional activity offered to guests at Sugarloaf?

Gondi Tower Work

Gondi Tower Work

Long ago, like today, work on the hill during the summer makes skiing possible for everyone in the winter. Unlike today, this old footage was pre-OSHA.. boy, pretty high up & not even tied off, those guys were all too hard working to have fear, & no one dared complain back then! & this was […]
