Resort Description

With 1,230 acres of developed terrain, Sugarloaf stands tall as the largest ski area east of the Rockies; providing access to the only lift-serviced above tree line skiing in the East. In the four years since the resort unveiled its 10 year development plan, Sugarloaf 2020, the mountain has seen more than $2 million in snowmaking upgrades, terrain expansions that have added more than 600 acres of powder-filled sidecountry, and a 30-person outdoor hot tub at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel.
