Powder magazine is what you look to for the most thrilling images to feed a skier/snowboarder’s dreams! So how did these three guys who have been skiing Sugarloaf for 50+ years manage to get a major story in the December issue? It’s all about attitude!

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!

Who remembers when we had hang-gliding at Sugarloaf???

Once again, a million Thank Yous to Michael Thom whose film camera captured rare footage of the hang-gliding ‘festival’we had in the ’70s at a time when a couple locals were doing it regularly (as often as possible!). This event was a real draw for the locals… the Who’s Who of the region can all […]
