Sugarloaf to open Sugar Shack this weekend

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – The newest addition to Sugarloaf’s base area, the Sugarloaf Sugar Shack, will open to the public this Saturday, March 20. Guests will have the opportunity to tour the Sugar Shack, learn how maple syrup is made, and try free samples of real Maine maple syrup produced on site at Sugarloaf.

The Sugar Shack is located on the Beach in front of Sugarloaf’s Base Lodge, and will be in operation throughout the spring season producing maple products from sap collected on the mountain.  

“We’ve been preparing for this all season, the sap is now running, and we’re really excited for the grand opening on Saturday,” said John Diller, Sugarloaf General Manager. “I think this will be a fun, unique, and educational experience for Sugarloaf guests, and will give visitors from away a firsthand look into a real Maine tradition.” 

Sugarloaf maple products will be made both at the Sugarloaf Sugar Shack and by other local producers. The syrup made in the Sugar Shack will be bottled on site and will be available for purchase in the Shack and at all of Sugarloaf’s retail locations.   

The Sugar Shack will open at 9am on Saturday morning, and guests are invited to come in and take a tour of the operation and try free samples of the maple syrup. The Shack will be open to the public on weekends and select weekdays for the remainder of the season, including Maine Maple Sunday on March 28.
