We hope to see everyone there. Let's make this year bigger than ever!

Maine Adaptive Ski-A-Thon

In addition to being an excellent fundraiser, the Ski-A-Thon is a ton of fun.

This year, we have a goal of raising $400,000! Whether as a team member, a sponsor, or individual who provides pledges – we hope you will consider supporting us in reaching our goal.

Participating in the Ski-A-Thon is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Create a team, join a team or be your own team! We encourage everyone to raise a minimum of $250 per person, with lots of great incentives and prizes to go above and beyond!

U.S. ALPINE SPEED CHAMPIONSHIPS

Ski racing is in Sugarloaf's DNA, and from the very beginning, the mountain has been the East Coast's premier proving ground for the world's best skiers. As the only East Coast location to ever host a World Cup downhill, and home to Carrabassett Valley Academy, the country's premier ski and snowboard academy, Sugarloaf has produced many of the world's best snowsport athletes, including Bode Miller, Kirsten Clark, Julie Parisien, Sam Morse, Seth Wescott, Alex Tuttle, and many more. We hope you'll join us this winter as the nation's best once again test themselves on the fabled Narrow Gauge trail.

The U.S. Alpine Speed Championships will be held March 16-21 at Sugarloaf. This will be the 7th U.S. National Championship event held at Sugarloaf, but the first official 'Speed Championship', with Downhill, Super-G, and Combined events.
