number of runs
Welcome to the middle of nowhere; you’re going to love it here. Why? It’s not the glamor and glitz. But what the Loaf might lack in trendiness, it more than makes up for with remote beauty, friendly vibes and exhausting terrain on a truly massive mountain (2,830 sustained vertical feet). “Remote” is the operative phrase, and getting here does require commitment. But in categories that really matter to skiers, Sugarloaf excels: No. 2 in Terrain, No. 2 in Challenge, No. 5 in Snow. It all adds up to a stellar No. 3 ranking for Overall Satisfaction.
/ What’s New / Improved snowmaking, notably on Gondola Line Extension and on Sidewinder; better wind-resistance on No. 3 T-Bar, Double Runner and SuperQuad
/ Don’t Miss / A trip to the summit, worth the hassle of getting there
/ Mandatory Run / Bubblecuffer: great bump run—and just fun to say
