I was at Sugarloaf in January with some coworkers and, for the short time we were there, it was simply awesome. There was fresh powder, and the terrain was very promising. Unfortunately when we got there, there were only TWO lifts operating due to wind, so lines were long right off the bat; But you can't blame the resort for bad weather. Then, after three runs they shut down the mountain completely due to 80MPH (Yes, eighty) winds at the top, and 50MPH winds at the base. It was chaos- People's loose boards and skiis were flying all over the place and everyone had packed into the cafeteria area.
Otherwise, the Loaf is one of the best mountains I've been to in the U.S. - I just didn't get a chance to experience it beyond three runs.
Looking forward to going back!
