John Christie's true story of Sugarloaf is accurate. I knew these guys from the beginning. the photos, the memories... It is impeccable.
I bought this as a gift for my father's 81st birthday. He has spent many years in the Sugarloaf area, and has land just down the road. Well, for a man who never reads a book, he could not put this one down! "I was there when they did this!" was all I heard as he flipped page after page!!! If you love Sugarloaf, then you will LOVE this book!
I got this book as a gift. The history of this fantastic mountain unfolds from the beginning and keeps the reader engaged throughout the book. The price is worth the photos alone. J. Christie not only captures the essence of Maine, but also the mystique of this truly unique place.
" Outstanding ". I grew up at Sugarloaf and my Dad knew all the players in the book, including the writer. I remembered some of the best times of my life when reading this. I gave a copy to my Dad and he wept. He is 92 and wishes he could still ski. It brought back great memories for Dad and my Mother.
This book is beautifully done! Our family grew up skiing on Sugarloaf Mountain in the beautiful Carrabasset Valley, Maine. This book, with breath taking photos, takes us back to the early days of development to today's big busy ski slope. My dad was one of the first skiiers who worked on developing this wonderful resort. It matters not wether or not you ski, this book is a great addition to one's library!

I love that mountain and The Story of Sugarloaf brought me back there. Our family spent 6 March breaks experiencing the Loaf.
Lived sling here. Loved hearing the stories of all the original loafers I only knew as the old people
Like the Mountain itself this book is awesome from cover to cover. If you've even skied Surgarloaf you should have this book. Sugarloafer since 1974.
