Sugarloaf: Ethan Austin
Sugarloaf — Sugarloaf, Maine, with its 16 lifts and three terrain parks, boasts the only lift-served, above-tree-line skiing in the whole of the Northeast – not to mention the region’s longest continuous vertical drop. Our Sugarloaf Travel Guide is your ticket to this town and its striking summit views, which on a clear day (accessed by the Timberline quad chair) look out over Maine's Mount Katahdin, and stretch as far as Vermont, New Hampshire, and Canada. Our Experts head to the King Pine Bowl and Ripsaw, which is never groomed, while kids and beginners flock to the Whiffletree SuperQuad and its pleasant blue and green runs. Note that ski season in Sugarloaf runs from mid-November through April.
