The Sugarloaf Mountain Resort in Maine includes amenities and activities to please the entire family. While Sugarloaf is famous for its highly-flaunted snowfields, and have challenged skiers for decades with its treeless plains of pitched white powder, tubing and snowshoeing are fast growing in popularity. If you’re looking for a family-friendly ski resort, this is it.
Advanced skiers won’t find anything comparable to Sugarloaf’s 4,237 foot summit, on the East coast. In fact, the White Nitro trail features some of the steepest terrain anywhere! If you’re not quite ready to tackle White Nitro, Sugarloaf’s varied terrain offers plenty of intermediate and beginner trails for the less experienced to enjoy, too.
Sugarloaf even offers kids only skiing with trails like Moose Alley and Broccoli Garden. These wide trails feature kid-pleasing bonuses like coming across a hidden cabin inhabited by mountain mascot Amos the Moose.
Perfect Turn Ski School: While Sugarloaf is known for its daunting vertical slopes, the Sugarloaf Ski Resort is also a good place for kids to learn to ski. The Perfect Turn ski school offers a unique program that introduces kids as young as 3 years old to skiing. Half and full-day programs are available.
Kids Tubing: Sugarloaf offers tubing for kids ages 12 and under, three nights each week.
Kids’ Club: The outdoor center also offers a Kids’ Club which keeps kids busy while parents are on the slopes. Programs include skiing games and activities like scavenger hunts. Kids stay active and interactive with fun activities that fill the day.
Kids Night Out: For kids ages 4-10, the Kids Night Out is a kid-friendly version of a night on the town. They are treated to games, movies, and pizza while their parents are out exploring the nightlife.
While skiing has made Sugarloaf famous, there are loads of things to do at this full mountain resort. One of the fasted growing winter sports is snoeshoeing.
Sugarloaf offers almost 90k of woodland trails with various degrees of difficulty and length. The Outdoor Center is separate from the main resort, but provides guided Snowshoe Safaris, and Shoe ‘n Stew tours that include lunch.
More to Do
Along with all these opportunities, there’s plenty more. Tubing, six ziplines stretched above the treetops, a fitness center where you can relax with a massage or even get your hair cut, and the Anti-Grav Complex add to the list of possibilities.
At the Anti-Grav Complex you’ll find things to do including a climbing wall, open gym, golf lessons, skateboard lessons, and more. The Sugarloaf Mountain Resort is one place that really does have something for everyone.
