Is it time to become a ‘loafer’?  This is the collective name loyal fans of this resort love to be assigned, and this loyalty alone should give clues as to the great appeal of Sugarloaf.  If you are looking for a resort with an excellent reputation, large ski area and fantastic snow record, and incredibly friendly locals then look no further than Sugarloaf. Located in Maine, Sugarloaf aka ‘The Loaf’ is the largest ski resort in East Coast USA and the only place which offers above treeline skiing in the North-East providing some of the most spectacular views around.  Few parts of east coast USA can claim to be as wild and beautiful as the Maine setting of Sugarloaf.  Yet the immense infrastructure and setup of the Sugarloaf resort makes it an enduring destination for school ski trips.
 

The Skiing…

At Sugarloaf, it is big, powdery and here is the best part, easy to manage as a group leader!  The Sugarloaf team ensure a slick and seamless process for you and your group so you can all enjoy the vast acreage of the East Coasts largest ski resort.  From exiting the ski hire at Base Lodge, your group immediately find themselves at the superb ‘Perfect Turn’ ski school which sits next to the main “Sugalorf Superquad” chairlift.  Next to this is a superb beginners area, in addition to some superb progression areas that eventually will lead beginners higher up the mountain, with easy, long, tree-lined runs from the very top to bottom.  A great aspect about Sugarloaf is runs all lead back to the central Base Lodge area.  Another exciting aspect is as the week progresses, there is every chance your whole group will be able to ski down the mountain together, beginners on an easier green circle run such as Timberline, and more intermediate and advanced skiers on any number of stunning tree-lined runs ranging from blue square to double black diamond.  This resort truly does have something for everyone, and with a immensely friendly and welcoming vibe for your school group.
 

The Snowfall…

Sugarloaf has an average annual snowfall over 5 metres, ensuring many days in Sugarloaf are all about powder, powder, powder…and plenty of it.  Add to this some of the best snowmaking in the whole USA with over 1000 snow cannons and this ensures Sugarloaf is about as snow-sure as it gets, with a long season starting early November and stretching until the end of April.
 

Off the Slopes…

The whole setup of Sugarloaf in combination to the skiing is one of the great appealing factors of this resort.  All accommodation options offered by Ski Adaptable at Sugarloaf have facilities either onsite or a short walk away, such as swimming pools, games rooms and function spaces which can be used for quiz nights and discos.  Add to this some great options at the ‘Anti-gravity Centre’ (AGC) and the Sugarloaf Outdoor Centre.  The AGC is a training base for elite free-style skiers, but their trampolines can be used for groups in addition to the huge sports hall and the climbing wall with instruction.  The Sugarloaf Outdoor Centre offers an Olympic sized ice rink, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing.  All activities are easily reachable with free transportation included in the small price of the activity.
