Winter in Maine, not a time to spend days and nights parked on a couch trapped inside the home.
We are outdoors year round in Maine, all four seasons. Winter is not exception. So down hill skiing, the cross country kind too, it is a big part of how we spend the time in a Maine winter.
A spectacle to see with over 60 million viewers of the games beam hitting a satellite circling the globe up, down and then over across the pond.
Folks there on the edge of their seats following the round and round on skis and shooting standing up, lying down.
Maine is lucky to be the venue for the World Cup IBU games. It really cranks dollars into the coffers on both sides of the Maine / Canadian border in Aroostook County.
But back to down hill skiing in Maine.
There are eighteen ski areas in Maine. Many times a local favorite is the venue to sample over and over. But living in Maine, it is possible for a “two nation vacation”.
We hop over to zip down the Trans Canada highway to Crabbe Mountain in New Brunswick as easily as a quick trip up US Rt 1 to Mars Hill’s Big Rock Ski area. Nothing compares to Sugarloaf USA or Sunday River either.
So the list of Maine Ski areas.

During college at the University of Maine at Orono, it was so close to hit Hermon Mountain to ski on a budget, under the lights, with music nightly.
Hermon Mountain, in the same town as Dysart’s Truck Stop Restaurant for a pleasant dining experience when it is time to put on the feed bag. The outdoor air jump starts the appetite big time.
Hermon Mountain has tubes for sliding down the hill if strapping on a board, pair of skis is not your thing.
There are eight snow tubing parks in Maine.
Have a son and girlfriend in Raymond Maine that want to try out Black Mountain, another local to them family value to make affordable skiing in Maine. Black Mountain is in Rumford Maine.
Skiing in Maine, lots of options that are economical. Don’t have to clean you out financially to go to the peak and hit the lodge at the bottom.
Nothing like selling a duplicate organ or second mortgaging the house to score a Colorado lift ticket when you are out in the Rockies, near the Continental Divide.
Get to Maine, see it on snow skis.
The fresh air and scenery getting to places high up you can not by car happens on a Maine snowmobile.
