Maine is a favorite destination for ocean lovers, naturalists, and those looking for rare treasures created by local artisans. But the true Maine experience awaits in winter. Many think of New England skiing in the Green Mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Few realize that same spine of mountains carved by the glaciers winds majestically through Maine offering some of the finest terrain and the least crowded skiing on the East Coast. Maine’s ski areas offer unspoiled views of expansive forest, inland lakes, and Camden Snowbowl even overlooks the brilliant waters of the Atlantic. This is the way skiing should be … in Maine’s great outdoors.
Maine has world class ski resorts like Sugarloaf, Sunday River, and Saddleback, to old-fashioned big mountains like Big Squaw, to quaint family run ski hills including Shawnee Peak, Mount Abram and Black Mountain. 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.
Skiing in Maine is as diverse as the state is immense. Sugarloaf is one big mountain with well over 2,000’ vertical of snowfields, steeps and glades for the extreme skier. Lost Valley and Black are charming ski hills to comfort the newest skier in the family. Finding enough winter recreation is no problem, you will find snowboarding halfpipes and terrain parks to moonlit cross-country touring and night skiing in the clear star-filled mountain air.
The pine tree state hosts World Cup and national ski, snowboard, biathlon and toboggan competitions contenders to thrill spectators, while festivals and winter carnivals at resorts equal fun for amateurs.
