Where To Watch

The Narrow Gauge trail provides several opportunities for spectators to view the action throughout the 2017 U.S. Alpine Championships. The best place to catch the action and get up close and personal with the athletes is at the finish area of each day's races. The finish area provides ample space for spectators, and provides limited opportunities to interact with some of the athletes as they exit the finish corral. 

Please note: Transportation will not be provided for non-skiing spectators. All spectators will be required to ski or hike to viewing areas.

Join the entire Sugarloaf community as we welcome the nation's best skiers to our mountain on Saturday, March 25. The Opening Ceremonies will feature a parade of athletes, speeches by notable members of the Sugarloaf, Maine, and U.S. Ski Team communities, as well as a spectacular fireworks display from Atlas Fireworks.
