Cruising the Snowfields in Carrabasset Valley, Maine
Five hours north of Boston, Sugarloaf is the ideal spring weekend getaway for New England skiers who thought it was time to put their equipment away for the summer. This isolated mountain is home to the only lift serviced above tree line skiing in the east, and though the famed ‘Snowfields’ typically do not open until well into the season, they are well worth the wait. After a short hike to the to the peak of the second tallest mountain in the state the views stretch for miles in all directions, though get too distracted because the terrain is some of the most challenging on the mountain. With March and April being two of the snowiest months in the part of New England, the Snowfields of Sugarloaf are well worth delaying the end of winter for one more weekend.
