Sugarloaf to conclude 2013-14 Maine ski season on Sunday, May 4
CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (April 30, 2014) - Maine's 2013-14 alpine ski season will come to a close on Sunday, May 4, when Sugarloaf celebrates its final day of skiing.
Skiers and riders will take to the slopes for one final time on Sunday to bid the ski season a fond farewell. Sugarloaf currently has more than 50 trails still open, with lift service available on the SuperQuad.
The resort was able to extend its season into May once again this year, thanks to nearly 8 feet of snow over the last two months of the season and consistently cold temperatures well into April.
"We've enjoyed a tremendous spring season," said Ethan Austin, Sugarloaf's Director of Marketing. "The snow has been incredible, Reggae Fest was our biggest ever, and we're looking forward to being the last resort in Maine to close for the season once again."
Lift tickets for Sugarloaf's final day will be $49 for adults and teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors.
Skiers looking to get a head start on next year's season can purchase their 2014-15 season passes at discounted rates, if they do so by the end of the day today. The New England Pass spring sale offers reduced prices, plus the opportunity for skiers to lock-in their pass at spring rates for just $50, and then pay the balance in four installments throughout the summer.

Sugarloaf's summer operations are scheduled to begin late May, when the Sugarloaf Golf Club opens for its 29th season. The course has been ranked as Maine's number one golf course by Golf Digest for 28 of its 29 seasons. For more information on Sugarloaf, please visit www.sugarloaf.com.
