Ski Maine

 

Maine is a top destination for ocean lovers, naturalists and those looking for rare treasures created by local artisans. But the true Maine experience awaits in winter in the mountains at ski areas and destination ski resorts. Many think of New England skiing in the Green Mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire’s White Mountains. But in fact, the biggest two ski areas in New England are Maine's Sugarloaf and Sunday River. The same spine of mountains carved by the glaciers wind majestically through Maine offering some of the finest terrain and the least crowded skiing and snowboarding on the East Coast.

 

Ski season in Maine is beautiful, the tall mountains blanketed in sparkling white snow bordering the clear blue sky. Maine’s ski areas impart unspoiled vistas of expansive forest, inland lakes and one noted ski hill, Camden Snow Bowl, even overlooks the brilliant waters of the Atlantic. Saddleback also provides a stunning panorama including views of Rangeley Lake. This is the way skiing should be … in Maine’s great outdoors.

 

Maine has everything from world class ski resorts with big mountain skiing - Sugarloaf, Sunday River and Saddleback, to quaint family and community-operated ski hills like Lost Valley and Big Rock. Maine’s northern location assures plentiful snowfall in winter, still downhill ski areas guarantee consistent quality skiing with snow making coverage and modern grooming equipment. What a rarity that classic outdoor adventure meets modern technology to offer the finest downhill and cross-country experiences anywhere.

 

Skiing in Maine is as diverse as the state is immense. Maine has big mountains like Sugarloaf with well over 2,000’ vertical of snowfields, steeps and glades for the extreme skier to local ski hills for the newest skier in the family at very affordable lift ticket prices - like Shawnee Peak. Finding enough winter recreation is no problem, on and off the slopes you will find snowboarding half-pipes and terrain parks to moonlit cross-country touring and night skiing in the clear star-filled mountain air. And new waves of activities abound at Maine ski resorts, which are not just for skiing anymore, as many have dedicated snow tubing parks, toboggan runs and ice skating for extended family fun. You can even snowshoe to a bonfire in the wilderness for a mug of hot cocoa.

The Pine Tree State continues to be the host of many national ski competitions, even World Cup ski events, with top racers and freestyle contenders to thrill spectators, while on slope festivals like Parrot Head and The Dumont Cup at Sunday River and Reggafest at Sugarloaf, and winter carnivals are held throughout the winter for all to join in the fun. Best of all skiing in Maine is roomy, friendly and fun in a setting that is unique the world over. A ski vacation in Maine just may be the perfect cure for cabin fever.
