The first phase of the long-rumored Burnt Mountain expansion was announced in the summer of 2010 with the unveiling of 'Sugarloaf 2020.'

Located east of the Ripsaw and Stub's trails, work on the Brackett Basin area started in 2010. The area features expert gladed terrain, covering 270 acres and 2,300 vertical feet. With current lift infrastructure, three lift rides are required in order to ski the new area top to bottom.

Brackett Basin opened on January 19, 2011.
