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, …

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

here’s to the old lifts we loved in the past & the many happy times we had thanks to them!! #5 & Gondi. Loved them both immeasurably!! May your spirits rise to create a brand new form (in the 2020 deadline plan) to make it a reality….

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…

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…

One of my favorite days shooting this blue sky day’s video from the summit.. on 3/4″ tape w/ total equipment half my weight when very few others were doing so..Marketing got a lot of mileage from this footage….

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

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. For all those who have worked so hard over the years, THANKS A MILLION, & those who do now, THANKS A MILLION, may you have a safe & successful […]

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 […]
