Sugarloaf........the "King of Spring"

Just saw this letter that Karl Strand sent to Sugarloaf employees. Pretty impressive, both in content and management style. It's hard to believe we've got another 6 weeks of skiing, but I'll take the man at his word.Team,Following last week’s unseasonably warm temperatures and what has been, to say the least, a challenging weather pattern throughout the winter, I know that there are many questions circulating regarding our operating plans from here on out.To that effect, I would ask for your…See More

Adaptive Outdoor Education Center opens at Sugarloaf

This will be a great addition to the area. Worked with Bruce at Maine Adaptive and this should be a great benefit to their program at Sugarloaf.http://www.theirregular.com/news/2015-11-04/Front_Page/New_lodge_for_disabled_outdoor_education.htmlSee More

Ski resorts with the biggest snowfall

Probably not a lot of surprises on here, but an interesting list regardless. Of course it's based on resort-prepared numbers, so they're obviously subject to the usual marketing department credibility.http://unofficialnetworks.com/2015/10/the-42-ski-resorts-that-get-the-most-snow-in-the-worldSee More

2013 Tour de France

Just because the Armstrong affair appears to be coming to an end, doesn't mean there won't be any drama. Here's the first controversy of the year: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/froome-rejects-wiggins-claim-to-tour-de-france-leadership-at-team-sky I'm gussing that Froome will be the Sky team leader at the TDF, given his early season results and the fact that Wiggins is doing the…See More

Sugarloaf Homecoming

Pretty good report from John Diller at Homecoming this year. Of course the big news was the $1 million in snowmaking improvements, but a couple of other nice nuggets.....new glades on West Mountain, better use of West Mountain for racing programs, rebranding of the ski shop and a lot of cosmetic improvements around the base area. All in all, folks seemed pretty happy. …See More

White Heat....the steepest trail in the East. Really?

With all the recent discussion about the accuracy of the Daily Report, I took a peak this morning and caught this gem regarding White Heat: "Look for some serious expansion over the coming days as we drop the ropes on the longest steepest widest lift-serviced trail in the East." I'm not challenging that claim, per se, but I'd love to see the topographical data collected from all the mountains in the East that  support it and would be interested to see the "top five" trails.See More
