Other than donning protective bubble wrap and rolling all the way down, skiing is the quickest way to get to the naturally occurring cereal box toys that grow at the bottom of mountains.

- The staff at the hotel was so nice and always more than willing to offer advice. We did not need anything done to our room, they were cleaned very well and we felt pampered. – MsGMaine, TripAdvisor
- I love Sugarloaf. Yes, I would marry it if possible, I would roll in its powdery, sometimes icy, mostly granular snow from the snowfields to the farthest reaches of the Snubber lift every day, and that, my friends, would be a VERY long roll. – Shaina P., Yelp
Sugarloaf Mountain Resort
Views from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain stretch across three states and parts of Canada, from Maine's Carrabassett Valley to the rolling hills of Vermont and New Hampshire. Though the resort's peak offers breathtaking panoramas, the terrain below is more apt to leave visitors short of breath. At 4,237 feet, Sugarloaf is Maine's second-highest summit and boasts the second-longest vertical drop of any ski resort in New England. More than 1,600 acres of varied terrain encompass back-country-style glades, a half-groomed, natural snow bowl, and the longest continuous fall line in New England, all of which skiers access from 14 chairlifts or the upholstered backs of the mountain's rare breed of servile moose.
In the spring, the snow melts to unveil the verdant fairways of Sugarloaf's Robert Trent Jones–designed golf course as they arch over steep hills and vanish behind groves of trees. Recently named Maine's No. 1 course by Golf Digest for the 26th time, the mountainous layout dazzles golfers with scenic topography, including the String of Pearls, a seven-hole stretch that hugs the Carrabassett River, where crystalline water flows over a track of smooth rocks. At the course's signature 11th hole—a par 3—sweeping views of the terrain may divert golfers' attention from the green 124 feet below or the earthworm lethargically stealing their favorite tee.
Sugarloaf's accommodations run the gamut from the newly refurbished refinements of the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel to the quaint Sugarloaf Inn. Though rooms vary considerably, some of the amenities include wood stoves, kitchenettes, ski lockers, and Swiss-made snowball machines. Most lodgings are either located at the base of the mountain or near the trails, and many have access to ski-on, ski-off paths that lead to the lifts.
