    • Important: You must load summer lift access onto your pass at http://shop.sugarloaf.com in advance, and you must have your RFID pass on you in order to open the gates to load the lift
    • See FAQs below for detailed information on how to add access to your pass. 


  • If you have purchased a 2021/22 season pass, simply visit our online store, click on "Scenic Lift Pass,' and click "Add To Cart." If you are loading access onto multiple passes simply click "Add To Cart" as many times as needed. Click "Checkout" and then select the member's pass that you want to add access to. Complete the free transaction and you're all set. Be sure to bring your physical RFID pass with you when you ride the lift - you will need it to open the RFID gates to load the lift. 

    Note: If you are a Sugarloaf employee who has not yet received your 2021/22 season pass, please visit The Outpost for a complimentary lift ride ticket. 

  • If you have purchased a 2021/22 season pass but do not have the physical pass media yet, you can visit The Outpost during regular operating hours and pick up your pass there. We can add summer lift access to your pass when you pick it up. 

  • Sorry, you must have a 2021/22 season pass in order to receive free summer lift access. 

  • If you purchased a scenic lift ride ticket online, you can pick it up at any of our Online Express kiosks in the Sugarloaf Village, or at The Outpost. Be sure to bring your purchase confirmation email with you, as you will need to scan the enclosed QR code to pick up your ticket. 

  • The hike from the top of the SuperQuad Chairlift to the Summit takes most people about 15-30 minutes. It's a moderate hike that can be steep in some places, and the views at the top are well worth the effort!

  • No. Hiking on the mountain is at your own risk, and there is no patrol. If you need assistance, call Sugarloaf Security at 207-237-6961. If you have an emergency call 911.

  • You can hike back down the mountain, or take a chairlift. The last chair departs the top of the SuperQuad at 3:45pm. 

  • The chairlift will run rain or shine, but may be closed in severe weather or lighting. 

  • Sorry, bikes and dogs are not allowed on the chairlift. 

  • Summer temperatures at Sugarloaf range between 60-90 degrees. The top of the mountain is typically 15 degrees colder than the base, so be sure to bring a warm layer. Weather can change quickly and without warning.
