Sugarloaf to offer zipline and scenic lift rides this summer

New summer offerings to begin operation in late July and early August  

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – This summer, guests at Sugarloaf will be able to experience the mountain’s spectacular views and unique natural environment from two new perspectives, with zipline tours and scenic lift rides scheduled to begin late July and early August.  

Zipline courses will be installed in June and July and will take guests on a high speed adventure over the Rookie River, traversing the path of the historic Sugarloaf Gondola. Riders will be suspended in the air by a secure harness, and enjoy a spectacular, never-before-seen perspective of Sugarloaf in the summer. Zipline rides are scheduled to begin on Saturday, August 7, will operate every Saturday throughout the summer and fall, and will continue throughout the ski season.

Zipline tours are currently operational at a number of Boyne operated resorts, including Big Sky in Montana and Boyne Mountain in Michigan. Boyne Resorts is the parent company of Sugarloaf. 

“Our sister resorts in Michigan and Montana have had tremendous success running these zipline tours and we’re excited to be able to offer this new attraction to our guests,” said Brad Larsen, Sugarloaf’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “It will be a truly unique summertime attraction and a thrilling ride for guests of all ages.” 

Sugarloaf will also open up its SuperQuad chairlift for scenic lift rides later this summer, offering guests the chance to take in spectacular views of the surrounding mountains throughout the summer and fall. Guests will be able to ride the lift up, walk around and explore the mountain, and enjoy a comfortable ride back to the base.  

Scenic lift rides are scheduled to begin on Saturday July 24, and will run every Saturday through October 16. Prices for lift rides will be $12 for ages 6 and up, or just $10 for season pass holders. Children ages 5 and under ride for free.  

Ticket prices and schedules for Zipline rides have yet to be announced.
