Google Earth Plug-in: Sugarloaf Ski Resort

Info Map Comments (1) Related Files


Sugarloaf/USA is a major ski resort located on Sugarloaf Mountain near Carrabassett Valley, Maine.

The first trail was cut at Sugarloaf in 1951 by a group of locals known as "The Bigelow Boys". Led by Amos Winter, they transformed the mountain into what is today one of the largest ski areas in the Northeast. At 4,237 feet (1291 m) Sugarloaf is second in elevation to Maine's highest peak, Mount Katahdin. The summit of Sugarloaf offers the only lift-serviced above-treeline skiing in the Northeast.

As of the beginning of 2007, there are 54 miles (87 km) of marked trails, and a total of 651 acres (2.6 km▓) of developed trails. There are 1,400 acres of skiable acres boundry to boundry. The fifteen chairlifts can serve 21,180 skiers per hour. There are currently 134 marked trails and glades, most of which are named after logging terms in a tribute to Maine's logging history.
