This is one of the East's top ski resorts and it's an ideal place to enjoy downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, snowcatting, and snowshoeing. Don't miss the hundreds of inches of snow and the new, improved terrain at Sugarloaf.

The Stats

Sugarloaf receives over 200 annual inches of snow. Expert skiers will enjoy runs like Snowfields but there are plenty of beginner and learning runs and areas, too. With 138 trails, 15 lifts, and even two high-speed super quads, Sugarloaf is its own little ski town and center aimed at family ski fun. Recently the resort made improvements to its terrain with over $5 million dollars of investments.

Off the Slopes

Lodging can be things like inns, hotels and motels, or even vacation rental homes. Because this is ski country in Maine, there are many options like bed and breakfasts and cottages for those who want to stay nearby but not mountainside. Condos and cabins are two other popular options for lodgings. You can find nearby lodging for Sugarloaf for virtually any budget or luxury requirement.

Discount lift tickets and ski coupons that work in one resort area typically carry over to the other as these are two resorts close enough together to be considered part of a resort cluster. Discount ski coupons and coupons for restaurants, bars, après-ski and shops can help you enjoy either ski resort, as can passes, packages and ski and stay discounts.

Getting Here

Getting to Sugarloaf can be a bit of a challenge. Sugarloaf can be reached with bus services, trains and rental cars. Sugarloaf regional airport is a great way to get into the area. Amtrak service to Portland makes it easier, too.
