Mid-station of the Gondi

Snow on the way again, hooray, looking more & more like a good old fashioned winter as each week rolls through w/ a bit more white heaven from above! Even if the wind blows a bit Monday, we’ll be skiing corn backside in April with glee, no worries. Speaking of the old days… the sights […]

Summer Gondola Ride

Summer Gondola Ride

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.

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

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 […]

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! Non-pretentious, serious skiing is what Sugarloaf, the Mountain, has always […]
