Pats fans show pride at Sugarloaf
CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine - Sugarloaf General Manager John Diller led the charge as more than 100 skiers and snowboarders clad in Patriots gear took a celebratory "Go Pats" run at Sugarloaf on Sunday.
Skiers and rider who showed up in Patriots jerseys received a half priced lift ticket on Super Bowl Sunday, and were able to earn a voucher for another day by participating in the group run.
"Sugarloaf nation is Patriots nation," Diller said. "We love our Pats, and this was a fun way to show our support from all the way up here in Maine."
Pats fans who spent the pre-game period on the slopes were treated to exceptional conditions, after close to two feet of new snow fell at the resort during the past week. Forecasts are calling for an additional 4-8 inches of snow on Monday and Monday night.
