Some snow storms come during the dark of night and it's exciting when we wake up and look out the window to see all the new snow; and then there are snow storms that come in the light of day and it's simply incredible to ski or ride as the big, fat flakes fall from the sky and we can witness the snow pile up. Such has been the case today as it's been nuking with varying levels of intensity throughout the day adding up to 4-5 inches as of this afternoon. The snow is going to continue through the evening hours before tapering off Saturday morning, so bring those fat skis back tomorrow because there's going to be freshies abound just asking to be shredded by all you Sugarloafers!
We'll see the snow fall through the evening and it'll turn into light showers overnight; when all is said and done, forecasters are predicting that we'll see 10-14" of new snow. Temperatures are taking a nose dive into the single digits tonight, and tomorrow we'll be looking at chilly temps hovering around 0 degrees at the base and negative single digits at the summit. Winds are predicted to pick up speed around 9am tomorrow and they may affect some of our higher elevation lifts. We'll make sure we keep you updated with the latest information regarding lift status posted on our Trails & Lifts status page, our @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter and here on the Daily Report.
Groomers will be heading for the hill tonight with plans to tackle 79 trails. Mother Nature is waving her hands at our snowmakers telling them, "I got this!". While she continues to hold the reins, they will enjoy the little bit of time off with plans to hop back online once the snow subsides. The Sugarloaf Terrain Park Crew has been busy working on the Mini Pipe and hope to have it open for the second half of Sunday or Monday.
Apres ski entertainment, Superbowl parties, Amos and Pierre Dinner Series, and nightly music...you will find all this and more at the Loaf this weekend. Head over to our Events Calendar page for all the details.
The second concert of the Bud Light UnCovered Series is tomorrow night at the Widowmaker. The Mallet Brothers Band, Maine's very own, will be throwing down their alt-country/rock jams. The show begins at 9pm with no cover charge...we'll see you there!
Hey you Pat's fans, we want you! The Patriots are playing for the championship again on Sunday and we're getting in on some of the action here at the Loaf. On Sunday, February 1, anyone in a New England Patriot's jersey can purchase a half-price ($42) lift ticket, and will have the opportunity to earn a free lift ticket by participating in a group photo and run. All you have to do is show up at the Whiffletree lift at 9:30am in your jersey and take a fun run with all the other Pat's fans.
And, for those of you looking for something else to do besides alpine skiing and riding, stop by the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center, where you will find 70 kilometers of open trails for classic and skate skiing as well as snowshoeing. The center also boasts a newly renovated ice rink; rentals are available, and they offer pick-up hockey on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The center serves up hearty soups, sandwiches and yummy baked goods in the Bull Moose Cafe. For more details and conditions, head to the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center page.
We. Love. SNOW!
