Sugarloaf - Maine

The first snow of the 2007-08 winter season fell at Sugarloaf Saturday night. Elevations above 2500 feet received approximately 2 inches of snow blanketing the trees and ground. Temperatures at the summit fell into the mid to high 20s overnight and was 28 degrees at 10 am Sunday.
Sugarloaf’s 4,237 foot elevation results in winter arriving early. Sugarloaf snowmakers intend to make the most of it’s elevation advantage by making snow as soon as the weather presents the opportunity.

This season Sugarloaf has embarked upon the largest capital improvement campaign in more than a decade by investing more than $4 million in the resort to make New England ’s premiere mountain experience even better. We’ve boosted snowmaking by 20 percent, added new groomers, expanded Bullwinkles, renovated the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel, and more than doubled the size of the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center .

Teton Gravity Research -

LOST AND FOUND is the story of the extraordinary season of 2007 as seen through the eyes of world-class skiers and snowboarders. With global drought persisting and ski resorts closing around the world, athletes are forced to follow the snow, sending them deep into the uncharted north country of Alaska and Canada. Filmed almost entirely in North America, LOST AND FOUND is a testament to the terrain and conditions that only exist in the Western Hemisphere. This film will take you into the vast, unexplored Tordrillo Mountains of Alaska, proving that some of the best big mountain riding in the world is still completely undiscovered. Athletes take advantage of the bountiful winter in British Columbia, hit disturbing park features in Aspen and score over-the-head powder pillows at Skeena Heliskiing. The winter of 2007 was feast or famine; LOST AND FOUND documents the feast.

PLACES: Tordrillo Mountains AK, Skeena Heliskiing BC, Jackson Hole, Utah, Montana, Aspen, Pemberton BC, Kicking Horse BC, Austria, Switzerland and The Candide Invitational.
