CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine - Skiers and riders at Sugarloaf/USA will be skiing from its lofty 4,237 foot summit this week with some of the best holiday week conditions in the resort’s 55 year history. Abundant natural snow combined with extended periods of ideal snowmaking temperatures will permit Sugarloaf to open terrain in every area of the mountain including the fabled summit, King Pine Bowl, and Whiffletree area before Christmas.
“Sugarloaf’s Summit is a special place not only for the terrain but for the spectacular setting,” said Bill Swain, Sugarloaf’s communications manager. “You’re on top of the world looking out over much of Maine including Mt. Katahdin, Mt. Washington and the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and well into Canada. To top it off, the Timberline trail makes the Summit something even beginning skiers and riders can enjoy.”
On Tuesday, Dec. 27, guests can take to the slopes of Sugarloaf at night for the second annual Carry the Torch for the Cure Torchlight Parade. This event is a part of the Sugarloaf Charity Summit and all proceeds from the torchlight parade will benefit the Maine Cancer Foundation and the Martha B. Webber Breast Cancer Center.

Sugarloaf/USA would like to invite you to participate in an historic event. Next Tuesday, Dec. 27, Sugarloaf is hosting the 2nd Annual Carry the Torch for the Cure Torchlight Parade to kick off the 2006 Sugarloaf Charity Summit. With your help and participation we can make this the largest torchlight parade we've ever had.

Mauna Kea,( Hawaii ) 13,796 Feet
It is the highest in the Pacific (more than 1,000 feet higher than Mount Fuji). It is the world's highest mountain from base to summit (it rises more than 33,000 feet from the ocean floor -- Everest's height is 29,000 feet).
There are many tales of week-long storms and instances where the summit could be accessed with a Snow Cat. And there are some pretty dramatic photos of its snows. you must rent a 4WD vehicle or hire a guide. Skiers take turns being the driver up a road that also serves several observatories at the summit. Snow falls during winter months, though the ski season can run from November through July, and the snow can accumulate to a few meters depth. February and March are the best bets for good snow. This has been called the finest snow in the world, and there is a ski-able area of almost 100 square miles. Hawaii's Big Kahuna Ski Club Hawaii Ski Club
