Maine's 2017-18 alpine ski season will come to a close on Sunday, May 6, when Sugarloaf celebrates its final day of lift-serviced skiing and riding.
Despite summer-like temperatures today, Sugarloaf's slopes are still deep with spring snow - commonly referred to as corn. Skiers and riders will take to the trails for one final weekend, on Saturday and Sunday to bid the ski season a fond farewell.
The resort was able to extend its season into May once again this year, thanks to more than 6 feet of natural snow over the last two months of the season and consistently cold temperatures well into April.
"We've been enjoying some of the best spring skiing and riding conditions in recent memory," said Noelle Tuttle, Sugarloaf's Communications Manager. "You don't often see such wide-spread coverage this late in the game, and we're looking forward to being the last resort in Maine to close for the season."
