Sugarloaf - 2017
Mar. 28, 2017 - Tues.
A lot of SJ people have enjoyed Sugarloaf. It's one of New England's reatest areas. So I'm only going to mention an oddity of the day and a new thing that I experienced.
Oddity: The day was odd weatherwise. It was foggy at the top with an undercast on the bottom, with about 1000 vertical between the two fog banks. Everything skied nicely in the fog free areas, although it was difficult to pick up the terrain in the fogged areas.
New to me: First time I ever skied Brackett Woods, the new gladed area to the left of the King Pine Chair. The acreage and the quantity of work to open it were impressive. However, I felt that the trees were overthinned and cut with uniformity in a way that it feels more like a mogul run than a glade. I thought it was nice, but after experiencing the glades at Black Mtn. of Maine a few days ago, Brackett Woods was a disappointment. I'd love to hear opinions on Brackett Woods from others who skied there.
