Temperatures are getting colder, the days are getting much shorter, and we can't wait for winter to finally arrive. The beautiful fall colors are great and all, but we much prefer to see the mountain covered in snow; while today isn't the day we can report on the first flakes of the season, we have historically seen the first snowfall of the year on this day in 2015. Ready or not, winter could be here any day now. Let the excitement for the 2016-17 ski season begin!
If you haven't already dusted off your ski boots, pre-waxed your skis, and purchased new outerwear for this season, you may have also forgotten to buy your 2016-17 New England Pass. The New England Pass is your ticket to over 350 trails at Sugarloaf, Loon, and Sunday River, which also combine for one of the longest seasons in the area. Additionally, with any New England Pass purchase, you'll be eligible to add on a M.A.X. Pass for just $299 which will provide you with 5 days of skiing or riding at 22 additional mountain resorts across North America. Get all of the details at www.themaxpass.com.
And if the thought of skiing has you dreaming of a winter vacation at the Loaf, you'll want to check out our Kids Ski Free promotion - a deal you won't want to miss if you have some youngsters in your family. You'll receive free lift tickets for your little Loafers, ages 12 and under, when you book a two or more night ski & stay package by November 30, 2016. That's free. No strings attached. No restricted dates. No gimmicks. Just free.
Hang in there, Sugarloafers. Our favorite form or precipitation will be accumulating on the hill soon enough, and we'll be making turns a month or so from now.
