Sugarloaf is the stuff of ski legends. This northern Maine ski area that dates
back to 1950 has the East’s only above tree line snowfields, 2,820’ continuous
vertical, and the most loyal skier following of any ski mountain east of the
Rockies. On a clear day you can see Mount Katahdin, Mount Washington and little
sister Sunday River from the 4,237’ scenic summit of Sugarloaf.
is nothing quite like Sugarloaf’s vast terrain from the steeps of White Nitro
and Gondi Line, to the gorgeous birch glades of Brackett Basin. But here is more
to this one big mountain, there is fan base of fun loving, fiercely dedicated
skiers and riders that make the Sugarloaf village such a special place to visit.
The best place to stay at Sugarloaf is the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel. This ski
hotel located in heart of Sugarloaf’s village offers commanding mountain views
from most every well-appointed room. This is the most luxurious accommodations
at The Loaf (as locals affectionately call it). From the Sugarloaf Hotel, you
are steps to all of Sugarloaf’s action from first chair on the SuperQuad, to the
Sugarloaf shops, to last call and last dance to live bands at the Widowmaker.
As you arrive at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel, you are treated to valet parking,
convenient ski lockers, and The Double Diamond restaurant and bar right in the
lobby. Or you can walk a few steps to The Bag or Gepettos or take a free shuttle
to Seth Wescott’s The Rack or the Shipyard Brewhaus.
After a day bashing the bumps on Bubblecuffer or dancing in your ski boots at
Sugarloaf’s Reggaefest, you will be so glad to be staying at the Sugarloaf
Mountain Hotel, sleeping on a comfy Boyne Bed (the best mattress our editors
have ever slept on). And you have no excuse not to make first tracks at
Sugarloaf when you are staying so close to the lifts. See a complete guide to
Sugarloaf Maine lodging.
