Visited Sugarloaf for the 6th time in 7 years. We visit during the kids ski weeks. The mountain is great for families as most trails funnel to the base. There is a trail almost 3.5 miles long (Tote Road). Bullwinkles is a great place, located just below the Timberline lift. The double black, black and blue runs are true to their rating. Know your ski level and respect this mountain.
We love everything about this mountain. We stay in the Sugartree complex which has an indoor fitness center (pool, hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas, gym, racketball and a WiFi bar). We drive 10 hours to get to Sugarloaf, passing many quality ski resorts on the way. That's all that needs to be said!
