info: 3.26.15  The Nature Valley US Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf are in the works! When the World Cup came to Sugarloaf in 1971, organizers paid tribute to the area's logging heritage by awarding the top skiers custom-made hatchets. Kiitella's custom awards for the 2015 U.S. Alpine Nationals - in "gold, silver and bronze" - are a nod to Sugarloaf’s logging and ski racing history. Handles supplied by Snow & Nealley, a Maine axe manufacturer since 1864.
