Sugarloaf School Ski Trips
The Largest Skiable Resort East of the Rockies
Sugarloaf School Ski Trips
Located in the Carrabassett Valley just 4.5hrs north of Boston city and known affectionately as “the Loaf”, Sugarloaf is surrounded by Maine’s Western Mountains. Additionally, the resort is renowned for offering the most challenging skiing in New England.
With an extended ski area in Brackett Basin your spoilt for choice, Sugarloaf offers almost 1,700 acres of skiing over a vertical drop of 2,820ft, thus creating 54 miles of trails making it the largest ski resort East of the Rockies. This deceptively large mountain is extremely popular with skiers young and old as it offers the only slope side village in Eastern USA.
Furthermore, this is one of the few resorts where all levels of skiers can start at the summit with a range of terrain to choose from, so you can see why so many UK schools choose Sugarloaf for their School Ski Trip. Snow is guaranteed late into the season with an average 17 feet of snowfall every year, in addition to an efficient snow-making system that covers 95% of the mountain.
It’s not just about the Snow…
With 170 designer outlets and incredible savings, this is the place to buy all your favorite brands. It is no wonder why this New England style village has become one of the country’s most popular outlet shopping destination for visitors from all over the world.
