Whether you’re a “Sugarloafer” or not, Maine’s largest ski resort packs a punch for all who visit Carrabassett Valley.
Becoming a part of the family though is when you get to latch onto the nickname.
“Sugarloaf is a sense of community,” New England Ski Journal Basecamp podcast host Mike Specian said. “I sort of parlay it like Magic Mountain is part of the community Or, Berkshire East…It’s got a large corporation behind it but still has a down-home feeling. Kingfield is a beautiful area, a great town to visit, all the way over to Rangeley, Maine to Saddleback. They’re all up there together and just a wonderful area to recreate and become part of a unique community.”
Sugarloaf marketing and communications director Ethan Austin and vice president of skier services Tom Butler joined Specian and Eric Wilbur on the latest Basecamp podcast to discuss the Maine resort’s massive impact on the New England ski scene.
