Mainely Skiing Weekly Email (January 14, 2022)

Welcome to the Mainely Skiing Weekly Email! This email will be sent straight to your inbox at the end of every week to highlight what’s happening with your Maine ski resort!


I don’t mean to overhype this storm but we are looking at a good one for Monday. Our forecasts are showing around 8-12 inches of the good stuff. If this storm delivers, it will be the most substantial storm since 2017 when Mother Nature gave us about 2 feet. Cross your fingers, do your snow dances, whatever it takes! Get ready for a killer day on Monday!! Purchase your lift tickets early and save! Head over to your local ski area’s website and get tickets now.

Big Rock:

Big Rock ski area is a small, family-friendly mountain located in Mars Hill. If you’ve ever skied there, you know the lift system is one like Saddleback before it closed. The main lift up the mountain is a double chair which is slow. The lifts around the base area have higher capacity than their own main lift up the mountain. Help the people of Mars Hill grow their mountain and bring it up to current lift standards. To learn more about their efforts and to donate, click the link below.
