Biggest Dump of the Season?

Granted our standards for “biggest” of the season aren’t especially high this season (12” in a single storm my sources tell me); but still this looks like the most promising of the year...

Best Weekend of the Winter?

I’ve made this case before: I will bundle up with the best of ‘em, but I’m a much happier skier when I can wear my lighter gear and drop the face mask...

Tuesday Refresh

I just got back from the weekend at the Loaf, and I have to say I was impressed...

How 'Bout Them Shadows?

It’s been quiet lately. But quiet isn’t necessarily bad. My contacts at the Loaf (and other ski resorts in Maine) tell me this has actually been a really good year so far, ticket-sales wise. I was somewhat surprised by that at first...

Weekend Storm

I'm not working this week and I only check the models when I'm off if I know something mega is on the way. So the first I heard of this storm was when the assignment manager at Newscenter texted me and Gutner with: "StormCenter Sunday??"

I don’t care what your therapist says; sometimes it’s just better not to talk about it.

December 2: Tuesday Storm

It's been a heck of a start so far with plenty of snow and lots of cold. Seasonally speaking that usually bodes well for Dec,Jan,Feb time period. More on that later though.

April 10: Rad Reggae

“Hey Sugarloaf management types, should I write a blog for the Reggae Fest weather?” -“Only if it’s good.” But it’s good. So, here we are.

April 5: April Après 10

Around my birthday (March 20th in case you want to buy me a suit that fits), it looked as though we were going to roll into spring without any more significant snow. That turned out not to be true...

This is no big secret, but timing is everything for a successful ski season...

Feb 15: Weekend Wishes Granted

Earlier in the week, before our Tuesday night storm, it looked like today's event could be a disaster for the Loaf...

Feb 11: Wednesday Refills

I checked WebMD for my symptoms and the results are conclusive; I have a virus that will last precisely from Wednesday through Friday of this week....

At this point, you’ve heard. There’s a large storm a brewin’ and it’s inbound to Maine for Saturday night through Sunday...

Jan 7: It'll take a few days, but a foot on the way

I’ve gone through a lot of phases with this storm. First was excitement with a side of realism...

Dec 30: New Year, New Snow

I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions; they are cliche.

Dec 6: The Fall of our Dreams Continues

That's what's crazy about it; it's still FALL.

Nov 25: Never-Before November

What an insane start to the season. Every snowfall measurement station in the state is recording this November as Top 3 Snowiest....and it isn't done yet.

Nov 13: Double Diamonds & Dad Bods

Oh, hey, is it that time again? Seems like just yesterday all you Sugarloafers were flooding my FB inbox bitching about the warmest summer on record, which happened to be the most humid summer on record too.
