Sugarloaf in Maine's Carrabassett Valley offers peace of mind to guests who book early.

Guests can enjoy the security of knowing they received the lowest prices of the season on ski and stay packages, with Sugarloaf's Low Price Guarantee.

Here's how it works: Book a 1010-11 Ski and Stay Package for two or more nights by Oct. 15, and guests are guaranteed the lowest prices of the season. If the price drops on an identical package, Sugarloaf will reduce the reservation price to match.

Caveats: Price reduction is based on an identical Ski and Stay Package with the same arrival date, departure date, lodging unit, number of guests and number of tickets. This offer cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions. Packages must be purchased by Oct. 15. A 50-percent reservation deposit is taken upon booking.

Final payment is due 14 days prior to arrival. The deposit is refundable, less a $50 cancelation fee, when cancelations are made more than 21 days prior to arrival. Cancelations made within 21 days of arrival will result in a forfeit of the deposit. Upon arrival, a security deposit in the form of a credit card authorization for $200 will be taken. There are no refunds for early departures/late arrivals. No pets are allowed. All Sugarloaf properties are non-smoking.
