The “King of Spring” offers spring savings for skiers

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – With the days getting longer and the temperatures on the rise, Sugarloaf is once again flexing its muscle as the “King of Spring,” with abundant terrain, big time events, and incredible savings on lift tickets and ski and stay packages.

Due to its northern location and high elevation, Sugarloaf has one of the longest ski seasons in the East. Last season the resort remained open until May 5, and plans to stay open into May again this year.

In addition to some of the best spring conditions in the East, Sugarloaf offers its guest numerous ways to save on late season skiing and riding. The resort recently launched several lift ticket promotions, including the return of Maine Family Days, which allows families from Maine to ski on Sundays through April 12 for just $30 per person. Maine residents can also purchase lift tickets at Sugarloaf on Wednesdays throughout the season for just $29.

Sugarloaf also announced the “Sugarloaf Affair” program, which allows skiers with a season pass to any other resort to purchase a lift ticket at Sugarloaf for just $39 dollars for the remainder of the season.

Kids and teens ages 6-18 can even ski for free when lodging for three or more midweek nights during Sugarloaf’s Kids and Teen Ski Free Week April 5-10. Package pricing starts at just $59 per adult per night.

Perhaps the greatest spring savings will be available through Sugarloaf’s exclusive “King of Spring Package” which offers midweek ski and stay packages for as little as $49 per person per night, starting April 5. Packages include daily lift ticket, lodging, and access to the Sugarloaf Sports and Fitness Center.

Sugarloaf has also begun selling 2009-2010 New England Passes, which provide access to Sugarloaf, Sunday River, and Loon throughout the season. Guests who purchase their passes before April 30 will receive additional benefits and the lowest rates.

Though spring has officially started, Sugarloaf has more than a month left in its season. Sugarloaf currently offers skiing and riding on 116 trails, including White Nitro and Powder Keg in the front face snowfields. The 21st Annual Bud Light Reggae Fest, the resort’s biggest annual event that typically draws upwards of 10,000 guests, is set for April 16-19.
