The Northeast’s major snowmaking window is leading to some rapid openings, as Killington and Sunday River opened for the season today.
Tomorrow, Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine will be spinning its lifts. They’ll start their winter off with the Superquad as their only operating lift. Sugarloaf will have at least six runs open, as Tote Road, Bridle Chain, Lower Timberline, Candyside, and Hayburner are currently confirmed by the mountain to be open for Friday. The mountain saw 4″ of snow from this week’s storm, so they have a solid base (in New England terms), to start out.
Come one, come all, we’re opening Friday. Our hardworking snowmaking team joined forces with Mother Nature to make sure that we can kickstart ski season. With at least 6 trails and more on the way, we can officially say it; Ski season is here. Learn more: https://t.co/3b3TZaWpMV pic.twitter.com/t1HnuFN7QU

The major addition of the offseason was a T-bar which Carabasset Valley Academy will use to train their ski racers. Other improvements include purchasing a hotel for employee housing and snowmaking upgrades.
In the coming seasons, a proposed future expansion onto West Mountain will grow Sugarloaf’s intermediate trail network, along with adding more slopeside homes and condos.
