I would hope Sugarloaf is not the LEAST crowded resort among the contenders. That would be no fun.
That being said, this needs to be said....The crowd at Sugarloaf is never enough to spoil anyone's day there. Yes, the Superquad can be a drag but, head to a different lift. Or, bettter yet, once on the mountain, avoid the Superquad until 1:30pm., or after 1pm. It's not hard to do.
So, to repeat...Crowds at Sugarloaf do not spoil your day there. Christmas or any other holiday period.
Let me take this a step further to help....When the lifts are busy (superquad, spillway east, whiffletree) consider taking these other lifts.....Double Runner, Spillway West, King Pine, Bucksaw, Timberline and a whole host of other lifts. And, you don't need to be a local hero to figure this out.
Sugarloaf is not a difficult mountain to navigate. One top, One base.
Add this....I do not own Sugarloaf nor do I work there. I live an hour away and I am not a season pass holder. I love the mountain for what it is...a skiers mountain. A skiers mountain for all abilities. I am simply trying to steer some folks here at EpicSki in the right direction for a great ski experience. And that great ski experience is getting better every year since Boyne and CNL have taken over.
