CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — More than a foot and a half of new snow at Sugarloaf has created some of the best early December conditions in recent memory. As a direct result of the storm, the Maine resort’s open terrain has more than doubled overnight.

“Excellent snowmaking weather combined with improvements to our snowmaking system had already enabled us to get significantly more terrain open compared to the same period last year,” said Marketing Director Frank Guerriero. “Add in this monster snow storm and we’re well on our way to some of the best Christmas week conditions we’ve ever had.”

Even though Mother Nature brought copious amounts of snow to Sugarloaf, aggressive snowmaking is ongoing and will continue as temperatures permit. “We are committed to getting as much terrain open as fast as we can, which means we’re going to charge ahead with snowmaking every chance we get,” Guerriero said.

This weekend skiers and riders can test out the latest skis and snowboards at Sugarloaf’s annual demo days. All the leading manufacturers will be on site to offer guests the chance to try the latest products on snow.

Also this weekend, the legendary Jefferson Starship with special guest the Outerspace Band will take the main stage in the King Pine Room. Limited tickets are still available by calling 1.800 THE LOAF.

Skiers and riders can save $25 off mid week lift tickets and $15 off weekend and holiday tickets with the Frequent Skier Card. Ski and stay packages are available from $69 per person, per night. Learn more online at sugarloaf.com or call 1.800 THE LOAF.
