This morning the cloudless sky made for a beautiful mix of yellows and oranges as the sun got closer and closer to the horizon. Skies are turning bluebird now and we're setting up to have a nice day on our hands. It is chilly though. However with light winds and sunshine, we're guessing the cooler air won't phase many Sugarloafers from getting out there and enjoying some fast skiing under the sun. As the work week comes to a close the frigid temps are expected to come to an end as well. Daytime temps Saturday through the beginning of next week are predicted to get back into the 20s. This coming weekend has us thinking of longer days and warmer temperatures; March is starting to stir up the good vibes and we're stoked to announce Stick Figure is set to headline a stacked lineup for the 27th Annual Reggae Festival on April 9-12th. Tickets and lodging packages are on sale now. Get the full scoop here.
Temps dipped last night and we're below zero this morning; they'll be making a slight rebound today reaching 11-15 degrees at the base and 2-6 degrees at the summit.
Our groomers worked on 58 trails last night, and 9 lifts are scheduled to turn this morning. As always, you get the most up-to-date information on our Trails & Lifts status page as well as our @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter in the morning.
Do you love action packed adventure films? We thought so. You're going to want to grab a seat in the Maple Room at 7pm Friday as the Maine Outdoor Film Festival is making a stop at the Loaf as part of their tour. There's going to be a little taste of Sugarloaf in the film lineup as our very own videographer has a film that will be featured. Entry is free and there will be a cash bar.
Ever wanted to take advantage of the sidecountry experience in Brackett Basin and try out alpine touring at Sugarloaf? Downhill Supply Company and Perfect Turn are offering Alpine Touring Clinics every Sunday morning; whether you're a first time enthusiast hoping to learn or an experienced backcountry skier looking for a guide, these tours are the perfect way to explore the gladed terrain Sugarloaf has to offer. Full setup rentals are available, and more information can be found here.
For those of you looking for something else to do besides alpine skiing and riding, stop by the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center, where you will find 70 kilometers of open trails for classic and skate skiing as well as snowshoeing. The center also boasts a newly renovated ice rink; rentals are available, and they offer pick-up hockey on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The center serves up hearty soups, sandwiches and yummy baked goods in the Bull Moose Cafe. For more details and conditions, head to the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center page.
Bundle up and enjoy the sunshine!
