Sugarloaf Ski Resort Expanding To Become The Biggest In The East

Posted: Updated:

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — Maine's Sugarloaf ski area says a planned expansion will make it the largest ski resort east of the Rocky Mountains.

Crews will begin clearing trees next week to add 270 acres of terrain for the coming season and 655 acres in the next three years. That will give the resort a total of 1,310 acres of skiable terrain.

Killington Resort in Vermont is the biggest ski area east of the Rockies, with 752 skiable acres. A spokesman says it's known as the Beast of the East because it has the most skier visits, most lifts, most trails, most miles of trails of any resort in the region and, for now, the most skiable acreage.

The nation's biggest ski areas are Vail in Colorado and Big Sky Resort in Montana. Both are more than 5,000 acres.
