Sugarloaf Outdoor Center opens with Maine's first Nordic skiing of the season
CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine - Thanks to favorable temperatures earlier this week that allowed for extensive snowmaking, the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center opened to skiers today, offering the first Nordic skiing in Maine this year.
The Outdoor Center, Maine's largest Nordic skiing center, opened a quarter-mile loop, with groomed surfaces for both classic and skate skiing.
"We rarely make snow at the Outdoor Center, but with the favorable temperatures and our ability to utilize equipment from Sugarloaf's snowmaking department, we decided to go for it this year," said Outdoor Center Manager Chris Parks. "Our guests are always anxious to get back on snow at this time of year, so we're excited to be able to offer this terrain so early in the season."
The Bull Moose Café and Outdoor Center Retail shop were both open on Saturday and Sunday as well. The Sugarloaf Outdoor Center is Maine's largest Nordic skiing center, with more than 90km of skiing and snowshoe trails, plus and NHL sized outdoor skating rink.
