2011 Initiatives:

Sugarloaf 2020- can read about it on

From a terrain expansion that will give Sugarloaf the most in-bounds terrain in the East, to lift and infrastructure improvements, to investment plans for summer activities and the Sugarloaf Golf Club. 

Sugarloaf is currently working with the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to establish a new water source on Caribou Pond that would effectively double the capacity of the exisitng snowmaking system. This is a lengthy and involved process, but many wheels are already in motion and tapping into this new water source is a significant piece of the Sugarloaf 2020 plan.

 New for 2011:  

  • Spillway chairs to be replace by new, state of the art, fixed grip quad
