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 […]

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 […]

It may BE old, but it never gets old watching the stylish early instructors on our Mountain with equipment that was a FAR cry from today’s skis, boots, clothes… never mind the trail conditions with no grooming as we know it today!

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 […]

Sugarloaf… late ’60s-early ’70s? Anyone pin point the year?

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.
