Winter weather may have taken its time to reach the northeast, but with favorable temperatures and an incoming storm front, Maine’s tallest winter resort plans to open for skiing and riding this Friday, November 15, 2019 – nearly a week ahead of schedule.
“We’ve had as many as 150 snow guns running throughout the weekend – with natural snow and more favorable temperatures expected this week, conditions for opening day will likely be some of the best we’ve seen in recent years,” Noelle Tuttle, Sugarloaf Marketing and Communications Manager said in a press release. “And with increased snowmaking capacity our early-season terrain offerings should expand quickly.”
Over the summer, the resort invested nearly $250,000 in snowmaking upgrades that include the installation of 50 HKD KLIK hydrants and the replacement of more than 7000 feet of snowmaking pipe to improve efficiency and production on mid-mountain terrain during critical early-season timeframes.
Lift service during opening weekend will be offered on the SuperQuad, and conditions are recommended for advanced skiers and riders only.
