Services and more to take care of and enhance your life, year round right here in the Maine High Peaks Region!
Solidifying Sugarloaf as a racer’s mountain five-plus decades ago, were the World Cup races that were moved to Maine after poor snow in Europe caused a change in venue in early 1971. The Narrow Gauge trail was, & remains today, a fantastic trail for speed events to slalom courses, & though the gear, grooming & generations have changed since then, the thrill never stops, or diminishes for that matter, for the run down our beloved ‘Gauge’! Go fast everyone, & Good Luck at the Nats this week!!
Not many races are almost as much fun for spectators as participants, but on a couple crucial downhill corners, the entertainment factor is indeed very high!!
This race from the bottom of King Pine chairlift to the Outdoor Center is not for beginner cross-country skiers, but for every one else with some capacity for skinny skiing, gravity does all the work (mostly!), all you have to do is stand up & steer from time to time!!
Register before 9a.m. Sunday; catch this race 11a.m. start Mar. 8, don’t be late because you forgot the clocks go ahead Saturday night!!!
Several years ago Stub Taylor compiled some of his slides & we had him do a Voice Over to describe what each photograph was all about!
