The largest ski area east of the Rocky Mountains will open Friday thanks to temperatures in the teens and low 20s this week.
It will be open seven days a week.
Sugarloaf employed new snowmaking technology this year as part of its 10-year development plan. The resort also plans to install new lifts and expand the ski area onto Burnt Mountain.
