Lift Rides

Scenic Lift Rides

There isn’t a better way to get a great view of the mountains you ski than getting on a ski lift and catching some great views. Let the chairlift do the hard part of getting you up the mountain so you only need to worry about what you do once you’re at the top.

Useful Tips:

  • If you plan on riding the lift back down, last chair boards at 3:45pm. 
  • The top of the mountain is typically 15 degrees colder than the base, so be sure to bring a warm layer.
  • Weather can change quickly and without warning so be prepared.
  • See all other helpful information below.


Sugarloaf uses the SuperQuad for scenic lift rides throughout the summer. They use the Outpost Adventure Center to manage tickets and book your trip. Sugarloaf offers free rides on Homecoming weekend as part of their welcome home weekend. The SuperQuad spins from 10:00am – 4:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Guests with a 2022/23 winter season pass ride for free all summer long!

Sunday River

Sunday River uses the Chondola for all uphill travel throughout the summer. The Chondola will be spinning 10:00am – 4:00pm Thursdays through Sundays all summer long. The lift is dog, kid, and grandparent friendly so bring the whole family! Lift tickets will be issued until 3:30PM or until capacity is reached. Once you arrive at the top, you can access hiking trails, or amazing views of Sunday River’s 9 peaks and beyond. If anything becomes an issue while out and about, please contact Patrol at (207)-824-5350 or visit our First Aid Clinic in the bottom of the South Ridge Lodge next to Betty’s Treats and Treasures.
