Maine ski resorts sporting new glades and myriad upgrades
Early openings and optimism about a snowy winter has operators excited to show off new lifts, trails and snowmaking.

Black Mountain’s Angry Beavers created four new glades. Sugarloaf spent $250,000 on a pair of snow machines that open up back-country terrain for an experience it says can’t be found anywhere east of Michigan.

Sunday River Resort skiers are already riding its first new lift in nine years and its Christmas week bookings are up 44 percent over this time last year.

Another ski season’s here with great investment – $4.7 million at Sunday River alone – one great unknown (Where art thou, Saddleback?) and the industry’s trademark optimism.

It’s the first time in Greg Sweetser’s memory that two Nordic centers and two Alpine slopes were open and skiing at the end of November in Maine.
