An old end-of-summer ritual…..

Nothing said Good-bye to the warmer months like the closing of the Golf Course after Homecoming at Sugarloaf! Years ago a typically irreverent “Golf Tournament to Benefit Nobody” was started by Gepetto’s, which was a long-standing occasion for one last summer BBQ & hoorah before preparations began for a new ski season!

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!

Unlikely as it may sound, when the Hartford Ballet spent their summers practicing at Sugarloaf, locals who wouldn’t know a tutu from a tip-toe came to appreciate the talents of these professionals! With free performances in the Courtyard that introduced us to a world of dance & beauty that wasn’t exactly part of our Carrabassett […]
