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!

2021/22 Ski Season:

What a great season everyone! As the season is coming to an end around the various Maine resorts, I can’t help but notice how great this season was. Despite the not-so-pleasant weather, many resorts were able to push through the ra*n and give us a great winter experience. Thank you to everyone who has a part in mountain operations!

Last Chair:

Mud Season is upon us! Whether we want it or not, it’s right around the corner. Please drive with caution when on dirt roads as spring conditions can make travel unsafe. Also, just a reminder, if the road gets muddy and unpassable, turn around – It’s not worth destroying a road and making it worse.


We’ve really been having some strange weather events this early in the spring. Just hoping we can ski until late April! To make sure, check with the extended forecast via the Weather Channel. Also, check out the lift status by clicking the link below!
