Sugarloaf is committed to sustainability, and we're working hard to reduce our environmental impact at every level of resort operations. Over the next few years, we'll continue to utilize a combination of cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned Maine ingenuity to increase efficiency, reduce waste and emissions, and ensure the health of our natural resources for generations to come. Our efforts are in coordination with Forever Project, Boyne Resort's goal of reducing carbon emissions to net zero throughout North American operations by 2030.

Our Sustainability Effort

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Mindful Efficiency

Create and maintain a culture of reduction: energy use, waste output, water impact; balanced with maximized utilization of our human, technological, natural, and financial resources.

Tireless Conservation

Protect the natural environment unwaveringly, ensuring proper use for purposes related to outdoor recreation, and preserving or rehabilitating the land over which we are stewards.

INNOVATIVE COLLABORATION

Support and reward outreach and partnerships that extend beyond all traditional boundaries, providing deeply valuable impact among our team members, and in our communities, industry, and environment for the long term.

Offset Your Trip

We invite our guests to play an active role in minimizing their carbon footprint - offset your trip to Sugarloaf with our partner Tradewater.
