Don’t pack up the skis and boards just yet for the season! The spring skiing season is packed with powder and isn’t letting up anytime soon. Sugarloaf got a nice coating of two inches yesterday and the resort is 100% open for action, including the legendary Backside Snowfields.

“It’s been an incredible season from the start, and it doesn’t look like it will be coming to an end anytime soon,” exclaimed Ethan Austin, Sugarloaf Communications Manager. “Every inch of the resort is wide open right now.”

Sugarloaf is home to the only lift-serviced above-treeline skiing anywhere on the East Coast, which offers a unique and challenging opportunity for advanced skiers and riders. Since the Backside Snowfields didn’t even open until Easter Sunday, there’s lots of fresh powder to be experienced for the rest of the spring season.


Sugarloaf has 151 trails and 1153 acres wide open for skiing and riding, which is the most of any resort operating on the East Coast.

Since Sugarloaf is currently an ideal location for some winter snow fun, the 25th anniversary of the Bud Light Reggae Festival will be taking place here April 11-14. The festival is known to attract thousands of mountain lovers and reggae enthusiasts to the beautiful resorts of Maine each year. This year, the festival will highlight eight bands playing through the day and into the night complemented by a stunning fireworks performance and discounted tickets, featuring free admission to Friday night’s annual “Reggae Rave.”
