Sugarloaf Opening Tomorrow!

14 hours. That is the amount of time until Sugarloaf opens for the 2018/19 ski season. Get excited, ’cause it’s gonna be a good one. 

Sugarloaf employees “tested” out the snow earlier today, and all reports point to good. Actually, fantastic. And it only gets better…

Forecasts are calling for 6-10 inches of snow tonight into tomorrow night at both Sugarloaf and Sunday River. Looks like opening day will be one for the books.

Ski Areas Operating this Weekend – 5/5 and 5/6


Sugarloaf Mountain // May 1st

Sugarloaf will be the only mountain in Maine opening this weekend. The SuperQuad chair will run from 8:30am to 3:50pm on both Saturday and Sunday. After this weekend, Sugarloaf will be closing down for the 2017-18 ski season.


All though I usually stick to Maine, over in Vermont three ski areas will operate this weekend.

Jay Peak has the Jet Triple and Bonaventure Quad open today and into the weekend. They originally planned to close after this weekend, but now have new plans. Jay Peak will be suspending all operations this upcoming week with plans to reopen next weekend (conditions permitting).

Killington is running the Superstar lift today and into the weekend. Their plan is to close Monday to Thursday and reopen Friday to Sunday as long as conditions allow.

Sugarbush will open for their final weekend Saturday. The Valley House Quad will spin from 9am to 5pm on both May 5th and 6th accessing limited terrain.

Get in those last runs!

Update: Jay Peak will not reopen for a final weekend on May 12th and 13th. Killington continues to open Friday to Sunday until the snow is gone.

Sunday River will be running White Cap and Barker lifts this weekend with access to about 50 trails. Weekend operations only through 4/29.
