Known affectionately by the locals as "The Loaf" due to its striking resemblance to an iced bun, Sugarloaf is renowned for offering the most challenging skiing in New England. Featuring a brand new ski area in Brackett Basin, Sugarloaf offers almost 1,700 acres of skiing over a vertical drop of almost 2,300ft, making it the largest US ski resort east of the Rockies. As one of the few resorts where all levels of skier can start at the summit of 4,237ft, and with a range of terrain including tight, eastern tree skiing and wide-open western-style glades, Sugarloaf has long been one of the most popular east coast destinations on the UK school market.
On the slopes
A winter playground for all levels of skier or boarder, the skiing gets progressively harder as you go higher, although there is an easy run for beginners from top to bottom. Beginners can enjoy gentle sloping trails and long winding cruising runs, which also suit intermediates. A real plus for school groups is that all trails eventually lead back to the base lodge, making it very easy to meet up at a central location. Advanced skiers will no doubt be challenged by the tough terrain of the backside snowfields and black diamond glades. Sugarloaf is a massive mountain, especially by New England’s standards. The clever lift design ensures that there is a challenge for everyone.
Off the slopes
The pedestrianised village has been developed in true Nordic style, with all amenities conveniently on hand. The Sugarloaf Sports and Fitness club, featuring an indoor pool, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, sauna and steam room, is a great place to relax and unwind after a full day on the slopes and is free to our groups.
