While the green mountains of Vermont are the stars of the ski areas in New England, you might be surprised to know that Western Maine boasts a ski resort that equals—and surpasses—some of the Vermont resorts: Sugarloaf Mountain. This resort sits on Maine’s second highest peak and boasts the only above-tree line lift service in the area! Sugarloaf also has the highest, most continuous vertical in New England and is the largest ski area east of the Rocky Mountains by acreage. The 160 trails constitute 60 miles of skiable terrain, but don’t let the mountain’s impressive stats intimidate you. More than half of the trails here are suitable for beginner or intermediate skiers. This locale also comes with black diamonds, double black diamonds, and terrain parks for daredevils. Here are some of the best hotels and vacation rentals near Sugarloaf to get you out on the trails in no time.
