Drone Policy

Personal photography is allowed across the resort and at all resort events.  All commercial and media filming, video and photography, requires prior approval from Sugarloaf's Marketing Department.


Due to safety and privacy concerns, Sugarloaf prohibits the operation of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, on or above resort property without the prior written authorization from Sugarloaf. This prohibition includes drones used for filming or videotaping, as well as any drone use by media or journalists operating above or within the area boundaries. This prohibition extends to any devices launched or operated from Resort property, as well as any launched from private property outside of the Resort boundaries.


Authorization for drone use will require proof of FAA licensing, insurance covering drone use, and liability release. Please contact the Marketing Department and provide this documentation if you wish to apply for authorization or have any questions.  Any violation of this policy can be reported to the FAA and may involve suspension of your access privileges to the Resort, the revocation of your season pass, and confiscation of any prohibited equipment.

Violators will be subject to any liability for damages, including, but not limited to, damages for trespass, violations of privacy, and physical injuries to persons and/or property, as well as legal fees
