Update: March 2020
As has been the case since Sugarloaf closed on March 15, uphill traffic, along with all related skiing and snowboarding activities, are prohibited on Sugarloaf property. Initially this policy was due to ongoing cat and snowmobile traffic on the mountain while we worked to shut things down. This policy will continue for a number of reasons:
• There are no services available at the current time, including ski patrol and first aid, meaning a response to any injury would be significantly delayed and require local emergency rescue services
• We want to encourage proper social distancing as recommended by health officials, and discourage group gatherings on the mountain and in our parking lots
• We want to encourage everyone to follow the advice of health officials and refrain from unnecessary, recreational travel to our area.
Thank you all in advance for respecting this policy, and helping to keep our community healthy and safe. Our hope remains that this policy will not require strict enforcement, but going forward our security team will be working to disperse any groups of people congregating in parking lots or other areas around the mountain.
We will all get through this together, and the mountain will be waiting when we do. We can't wait to see you back here then.
Sugarloaf embraces uphill skinning and snowshoeing. For the safety of everyone on the mountain, we ask that anyone participating in these activities adhere to the following guidelines. All uphill travel is done at each individual's own risk.
