Ali and Bob stopped by the set this past Monday to give everyone a heads up that this is Nova Scotia vacation week and there will be a lot of kiddos out enjoying the snow and learning to ski. That being said, Ali urges folks to give a helping hand while riding the lifts and explains how. And Bob? …well Bob was on set too.. [Read more…]
This year’s events last all afternoon, capped off w/ the fireworks at dusk Monday night! This footage from the ’80s shows the same spirit of community has been an integral part of life in CV for a long time… recognize anyone???
OK, so we may be a little biased, but 2 Olympic Gold Medals pretty much puts anyone on the BEST List, for sure! The whole planet is celebrating the 10th annual World Snowboard day on this weekend to introduce new people to the snowport, and celebrate the camaraderie among riders.

Only at Sugarloaf will two-time Olympic snowboardcross gold medalist, Seth Wescott, be hosting group rides regularly throughout the day!
Seth Wescott and Sugarloaf hosted the 1st ever Banked Slalom on the East Coast on March 19th, 2011. Over 140 riders participated and the weather was perfect! 2002 Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Powers rode the fastest time and took home the Glass Lobster…

Reggae Fest goes from April 11-14th this year. For those of you who have never been, we’ve included a video of what you’ve been missing. For those of you all too familiar with Reggae Fest, well, enjoy the flashback. [Read more…]
