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 […]

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!

more Treasure from Chip’s Barn

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 […]
