Sugarloaf plans to crank up lifts beginning Nov. 16, a week before the turkey celebration. “We typically have about 1,700 vertical feet with three to 10 trails,” Sugarloaf’s Brad Larsen said. On Saturday and Sunday during the Thanksgiving holidays, you can ski for $39 by donating canned food to the annual Tin Mountain Roundup

For families, Sugarloaf offers ice skating and unique indoor fun. The town-owned Antigravity Complex features trampolines, a climbing wall and a skateboard park, perfect for kids, tweens and teens. Visitors can also get a sneak peak at the Downhill Supply Company, a new ski and snowboard retail outlet.
