Wonder if we’ll ever have anything like this way to summit our mountain again? Grandparents & little ones, all enjoyed the ride up & down, & incredible panoramic view while having a picnic on the deck, with that full 360 degree view from the Whites & Quebec, to Maine from east to south, all visible […]

This casual conversation between original Sugarloaf patrollers Stub Taylor & Dana Wallace was captured in the Patrol Locker Room in Admin. during the early 1990s. It is a gem for the memories they share! It’s hard to imagine how different things were 60 years ago, but it’s easy to see this hard-core skiers’ mountain, has been respected […]

Hartford Ballet at the Mountain in the ’80s, & a Softball Game!

With free performances in the Courtyard that introduced us to a world of dance & beauty that wasn’t exactly part of our Carrabassett […]

One of the truly unique, if not THE most outstanding feature of skiing (& riding) at Sugarloaf, is the chance to ski above the tree-line with lift service! Every season is different, & some are better than others, but for those of us who live here, any day at the summit of Sugarloaf is better than […]

Carrabassett River Canoe Race: another event from our Archives…

Sugarloaf held canoe races on the Dead & Carrabassett Rivers for many years during spring thaw, which drew paddlers from wide & far to take advantage of the high water-whitewater! It drew tons of spectators, too, with easy viewing along Rt. 27 in many places. Happy Spring memories from mountain melting water adventures in Carrabassett […]
