CRNEMBA Trail Work Day:

Join Sugarloaf and Carrabassett Valley Academy for the CRNEMBA Trail Work Day. Happening this October 29, help out by giving back to the trails. Bring the kids; trail work is a fun way for the family to get outside together and contribute to the community.

THE WORK: We generally work from 9:00 AM till 2:00 PM raking, lopping, trimming, and occasionally tackling more significant maintenance projects. Our focus is on safety and fun. We’ll tailor assignments to your comfort level and we’re glad to have you for only part of the day if that’s all you have to give.

ITEMS TO BRING: Water, sturdy gloves and footwear, safety glasses/protective eyewear, insect repellent, rain gear (just in case), lunch or snacks. We provide any specialized tools that may be needed but it’s helpful If you have hand tools that you can bring (such as leaf rakes, loppers, hand saws, hand shears). A cell phone is also a good idea so we can communicate on issues that may pop up.

Competition Hill Construction:

Crews started groundwork on Sugarloaf’s newest lift, Competition Hill, A new Doppelmayr T-Bar in collaboration with Sugarloaf and CVA to create a world-class training environment. This new lift, paired with fully automated snowmaking equipment will help give racers the confidence to go big! Sugarloaf hopes this new lift will help take pressure off main lifts on busy days. Watch the project take form by clicking the link below.

Jordan 8:

The new Jordan 8 construction is moving nicely. The crew at Sunday River and Doppelmayr only have a few more things before the lift will be taking skiers to the top of Jordan Peak. Those items include Aligning Towers, Pulling the haul rope, and putting chairs on the line. For the latest video update, click the link below.

Saddleback Webcams:

Have you visited the Saddleback Webcams? With three cameras scattered across the mountain, you’re guaranteed to get the best sunset. You can go back in time if you missed the best part. While you can catch some pretty amazing sunsets, you also are able to watch crews working. This past week, they received delivery of the towers and the bottom terminal has started to take form. Click the link below to watch them build the new Sandy Quad.

Maine saw another week of bad weather with rain clouds. Thankfully, we’re expecting a turn of events this weekend. Over the three days, we have sunshine and high temps. Plus, the lows are getting back down to prime snowmaking weather! Keep doing those snow dances!!
