Walking the Carrabassett trail in Maine

Is it Spring yet?  Our week at Sugarloaf started with frigid temperatures but good snow conditions pleasing most of our intrepid skiers. Some of our group preferred to ski the top areas of the mountain but many of us were very happy with the lifts that went three quarters of the way.  We gathered for lunch and rest at Bullwinkle's Pub halfway up the mountain. In all, the snow conditions were great. Sugarloaf was a wonderful mountain to ski with something for every level.  
 The cross-country skiers in our group found a variety of activities at the Nordic Outdoor Center. Besides cross-country skiing, some tried snow shoeing at the Center or later tried hiking on the Narrow-Gauge Trail, a local conservation area maintained by the town.  
At the Sugarloaf Inn, we dined at the Shipyard Brewhaus where the included breakfasts were wonderful and the dinners were fantastic. The 2 for 1 night on Tuesday was very kind to our wallets, and the Wednesday Asian night specials did not leave us hungry an hour later!!   

Weather went from a low of 18 degrees on Monday and Tuesday to a gradual warm up over the next three days moving from the mid to high thirties on Wednesday to even the fifties by Thursday and Friday.  For our trip, Mark Twain's quote surely applied: "If you don't like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes."  Good Times were reported by all.
