Sugarloaf is Maine’s largest single ski mountain, with a breathtaking summit and miles of exciting trail options, from snowfields to side country glades with cat skiing, to groomed cruisers and a separate beginner area.
This mountain offers great skiing on two sides, and awesome views of Mount Washington and Moose Pond below. As a family ski mountain, the Peak offers some innovative super savers and family lift ticket deals for the day, night, and twilight.
Big Squaw, a few scant miles from Moosehead Lake, once offered big mountain skiing with a classic New England trail layout. Now it is more humble, locally operated by volunteers, on the lower mountain triple chair.
At the summit is a state-of-the-art Biathlon Center with world-class Nordic skiing and a training facility for the US Biathlon team. This facility is under the direction of the Maine Winter Sports Center which also operates Black and Big Rock ski areas.
