Wednesday, April 4th
The Outdoor Center Lodge and Services are now closed for the season (see message from Sugarloaf below) and trail operation is back under Town and CVTC management. The lodge will reopen later this spring, but until then there are no restroom facilities available, so plan accordingly.
This is the tricky season with regard to mountain bike trail conditions. No trails are currently closed but we offer the following guidance and rely on the good judgment of our riding community to help extend the winter riding and protect the underlying trails: For snow covered trails, please avoid riding if you’re sinking in more than an inch; keep that tire pressure low! For trails clear of snow, recall what your Mom used to say before sending you out for the day -stay out of the mud! Please be cautious on any unfrozen trail surface; ruts and other material displacement damage (think wet dirt flinging off your tires into your eyes and onto your backside) take time and energy to repair; time better spent building new trails. Thanks; we need everyone’s help.
Greetings from the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center
We have ended our 2017/2018 Nordic Season on a high note with the entire trail network skiable and snowshoe-able, and there is a good amount of snow cover remaining out on the trails at this time. The Nordic Lodge and all associated services have now CLOSED. We appreciate your patronage and look forward to future visits.
To continue to help you all enjoy the spring weather over the next few weeks, we are looking to groom on limited basis up thru Reggae Sunday, April 15th as snow conditions and weather allow. Trail Grooming efforts will be updated as they occur on our Sugarloaf Outdoor Center Facebook Page.
At this time the trails revert to the Town of Carrabassett Valley and are available for all non-motorized uses with no fee and no restrictions, i.e. skiing, snowshoeing, biking, walking, accompanied by dogs, etc. We do ask that all users be courteous to each other, respect trail conditions, that you pick up after your pets, and that you tread lightly and cease trail use when Mud Season fully arrives in the coming weeks.
This trail condition page is hosted by CRNEMBA on behalf of the Carrabassett Valley trails Committee (CVTC). The CVTC is a partnership between the Town of Carrabassett Valley, CRNEMBA, Maine Huts & Trails and Sugarloaf created to coordinate and fuel the growth and maintenance of the unique, world class trail system here in the Carrabassett Region. A subcommittee was recently appointed to manage the maintenance and opening and closing of the trails. The following will guide those decisions:
