The Outdoor Center
Kid-friendly trails and features
Open 7 daily all summer
When the snow melts and the Nordic groomers are tucked away, the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center transforms into the mountain biking hub for Carrabassett Valley. Our friends at Allspeed Cyclery & Snow head north for the season and set up shop: offering mountain bike rentals, gear and equipment, and lessons.
