CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — With the days getting longer and the temperatures on the rise, Sugarloaf is once again flexing its muscle as the “King of Spring,” with abundant terrain, big events and savings on lift tickets and ski-and-stay packages.
Due to its northern location and high elevation, Sugarloaf has one of the longest ski seasons in the East. Last season the resort remained open until May 5, and plans to stay open into May again this year.
Sugarloaf offers skiing and riding on 122 trails, including White Nitro in the front face snowfields. The 21st Annual Bud Light Reggae Festival, the resort’s biggest annual event that typically draws upwards of 10,000 guests, is set for April 16-19.
Sugarloaf is also offering ways to save on late-season skiing and riding. The resort recently launched several lift-ticket promotions, including the return of Maine Family Days, which allows families from Maine to ski on Sundays through April 12 for $30 per person. Maine residents can also purchase lift tickets at Sugarloaf on Wednesdays throughout the season for $29.
Sugarloaf also announced the “Sugarloaf Affair” program, which allows skiers with a season pass to any other resort to purchase a lift ticket at Sugarloaf for $39 for the remainder of the season.
Kids and teens ages 6-18 can ski for free when lodging for three or more midweek nights during Sugarloaf’s Kids and Teen Ski Free Week April 5-10. Package pricing starts at $59 per adult per night.
Savings will also be available through Sugarloaf’s exclusive “King of Spring Package” which offers midweek ski and stay packages for as low as $49 per person per night, starting April 5. Packages include daily lift ticket, lodging, and access to the Sugarloaf Sports and Fitness Center.
