Snowmaking continues at Sugarloaf to build base depths for spring skiing

Over 100 guns online across four trails.

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, MAINE—With temperatures dipping down into the single digits last night, Sugarloaf’s snowguns roared to life once again, with 106 guns blasting snow across four trails. The late-season snowmaking push will enhance base depths in key areas as the resort looks ahead to another month of spring skiing. 

Snowmakers set to work on Tote Road, Bridle Chain, and key sections of Candyside last night, and will continue making snow throughout the day today and tonight while favorable temperatures last. 

While Sugarloaf typically stops snowmaking for the season in late January or early February, the resort decided to bolster Mother Nature’s below-average snowfall with some added late-season snow of its own. 

“Sugarloaf is the King of Spring, and we’re committed to providing a great spring skiing season,” Sugarloaf General Manager Karl Strand said. “These additional snowmaking efforts will help ensure that our guests can enjoy the great spring conditions they’ve come to expect from Sugarloaf.”

While Sugarloaf has not announced an official closing date, its season typically extends into late April or early May, conditions permitting.
