***We expect to be mowing many of the trails in the XC Network this week and next. The mower operators will be on the lookout for folks on foot or bicycle, but please watch for them and wait for their signal to proceed past them.***
The Sugarloaf Outdoor Center is in summer mode. The building is available for function hall rental but contacting Kathy Morton at firstname.lastname@example.org or dailing 237-6822.
Carrabassett Valley Bike is open for the summer with their bike repair & service shop and offers rentals of various mountain bikes. If you are looking to contact them, please call Bob Ash at 207-671-3560 or email at email@example.com.
Maine Huts and Trails also will have a represenative present during peak times so stop in and check them out.
Also, the next time you visit us you will notice some construction activity as you drive up to the Lodge; the new facility is home to the new "Adaptive Outdoor Education Center", which is happening through the efforts of the Albiston Foundation. This non-profit center will provide "outdoor and recreational opportunities to all people with disabilities". Programs will include camps for people who are blind/visually impaired, have Aphasia, Parkinson's, Autism, developmental and other disabilities. Construction has started and the Center is hopeful to be completed and operating in 2015. We look forward to being neighbors with this organization.
From all of us here at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center, we wish to share our appreciation to all of you who have visited with us occasionally or regularly this past winter season, and we look forward to seeing you again in the fall, if not before then. If you haven't secured your Nordic Season Pass yet, we encourage you to visit http://www.sugarloaf.com/estore/Content/Commerce/Products/DisplayProducts.aspx?ProductGroupCode=1100&ProductCategoryCode=95035 .
Now that we have closed down winter operations, the trails revert to the Town of Carrabassett Valley and are available for all non-motorized uses with no fee and no restrictions, i.e. skiing, biking, walking, accompanied by dogs, etc. We do ask that all users be courteous to each other, that you pick up after your pets, and that you tread lightly.
