Before Sugarloaf, Kingfielders happily skied Bigelow Mountain, where the Civilian Conservation Corps had cut a trail and built a lodge in the 1930's. But in 1947, for reasons that are probably legitimate, Central Maine Power Company dammed the Dead River to create Flagstaff Lake, which cut off access to Bigelow. Like true Mainers, the locals didn't mourn; they organized. A Kingfield storekeeper named Amos Winter was about to step up to the challenge in a big way.
The first Sugarloafers believed in the mountain and set forth the heritage and sence of community that Sugarloaf is known for. The now-famous sign on Doc and Joni Blachard's A-frame shown here features the early Sugarloafers' semi-secret acronym "SIAWOL," which stands for "Sugarloaf is a way of lfe." A celebration that would continue for the next 50 years had begun. And the rest, as they say is history.
