Maine is gorgeous place to ski and snowboard, even if you consider only the beauty of the surrounding mountains. But that is just the start. New Hampshire’s White Mountains spill into the western mountains of Maine and Maine has plenty of home-grown peaks.
The biggest mountains include Saddleback, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf, along with many other full service ski areas. Scattered throughout Maine are smaller family-oriented ski mountains, and even a distinctive location where skiers can look out over the Atlantic Ocean from the slopes. History-minded skiers may enjoy visiting the Maine Ski & Snowboard Museum in Kingfield. Ski Maine, the state’s ski marketing organization, along with individual skiing, boarding, and cross-country ski area, offers lots of deals, discounts, and incentives programs to get people onto the slopes.
