Major doings at Sugarloaf.....Expanding to Burnt Mountain, 270 acres of new glades this year. In a 3 phase expansion they are doubling the skiing acres. The new area is being called Brackett Basin and is huge and beautiful.
The base lodge is getting a facelift this summer. Looks great. Wood theme.
Word has it next summer the Spillway Chairs will be replaced with a fixed grip quad. That's awesome. Eventually they are going to extend the Timberline Quad down to Bullwinkles, an on-mountain lodge. Great.
Hopefully, within 10 years, a new lift will service the summit from the base.
The expansion to Burnt Mtn. literally will blow away any other resort in the east.
Continued snowmaking improvements will allow for earlier openings and later closings.
They are also cleaning up the snowfields to rid the natural 'debris' that has grown up in the past several decades. With snowmaking in the snowfields skiers will have a better chance to experience natures wonders of above treeline skiing.
Boyne is transforming the 'loaf and IMO, doing a fine job of it. For anyone who knows Sugarloaf, this expansion is mind bending and vast.
Sugarloaf is doubling in size. Wow.!!
