Today at the Loaf
First Saturday with Timberline access = pure gold.

It's hard to beat a day like the one we witnessed here at the Loaf yesterday, but by golly we're going to try. We're thinking we might just be in luck; the weather is looking fabulous, our groomers raved about snow conditions they saw during the overnight hours, and there's still plenty of untouched freshies to be found when you explore Brackett Basin and Burnt Mountain. So forget your holiday shopping and cooking plans today and meet us on the hill!

For those of you looking for the ultimate side-country experience, look no further than Burnt Mountain. You can access Androscoggin glade and all of Eastern Territory where you will find chutes, cliffs, and steeps. The terrain is not for everyone and we only recommend it for advanced skiers and riders - check out our Brackett Basics page to learn more.

Liked the weather you saw yesterday?  Good because Mother Nature has similar weather on tap for us today.  We'll be skiing and riding under partly sunny skies, very calm winds, and temperatures ranging between 19-23 degrees at the base and 16-20 degrees at the summit.

Perfect snowmaking temps last night meant multiple shops set up around the mountain; snowmakers blasted on Widowmaker, Skidder, Tohaul, and on a few terrain parks like Skybound and Sidewinder. If you happened to be out and about the base last night, you probably noticed the lights from the grooming machines and how they resembled a string of Christmas lights. They laid fresh stripes from east to west for you, covering 46 trails.

The same lifts you saw spinning yesterday will be back today; 12 out of 14 are scheduled to run. Lift ticket prices are at the regular season rate. We'll be sure to keep you updated with the latest information regarding lift status and trails on our Trails & Lifts status page as well as the @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter.

Don't forget about the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center where you will find 70 kilometers of open trails for classic and skate skiing as well as snowshoeing. They are now serving up hearty soups, sandwiches and yummy baked goods in their Bull Moose Cafe. For more details and conditions, head to the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center page.  

Bring your family up to Sugarloaf over Christmas and New Years this year!  Visit our website for more info and holiday package deals.  Our deadline for college students to snag their season pass is quickly approaching; it's December 31, so stop in or give us a call to get things set up so you can enjoy the 2014-15 season.

Heads up Gold Plus Passholders! The first First Tracks of the season is scheduled for today; during vacation week you'll see two weekdays, Tuesday December 30 and Thursday January 1.
