The mountains of western Maine are the place to find endless outdoor fun and thrills to keep you coming back for more. The Outpost is home to summer adventure at Sugarloaf, while the hub of activity at Sunday River is the Mountain Park. 

Deals at both resorts means you can have it all. Sunday River's $25 Adventure Pass includes unlimited day use of scenic lift rides, ziplines, bungee trampoline, and climbing wall. Sugarloaf’s $50 Summer Activity Pass gets you unlimited scenic lift rides all summer, discounts on dining all summer, a zipline tour and Segway tour, and a bucket of range balls at the golf club.

Sunday River boasts the only lift-serviced alpine disc golf course in Maine. After a Chondola ride to North Peak, players hike down along the resort's 18-hole course. Sugarloaf’s course is just above the base area, and there’s no charge to play.

At Sugarloaf, enjoy a summertime ride up the mountain from the comfort of a scenic chairlift ride on the SuperQuad. Sunday River’s Chondola whisks guests to the mid-mountain Peak Lodge where views of the Mahoosuc and Presidential ranges extend for miles and miles.

Sugarloaf’s Segway Personal Transport will get you off the pavement and onto some of Sugarloaf's trails for a new mountain perspective.

Rent a canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard and spend a day at Sugarloaf exploring the sandy beaches and tiny islands of nearby Flagstaff Lake, just on the other side of the Bigelow Range.

Sunday River added to the trail count this summer with White Cap Summit trail and a trail from the top of Jordan Bowl's Lollapalooza to the top of the Chondola. The Kids Adventure trail features educational stops and a visit to Eddy the Yeti's house in the Enchanted Forest, Sugarloaf is one of four 4,000 foot peaks in the Carrabassett Valley, and with plenty of gentle trails through the foothills, there's something for every hiker.
