Hitting the slopes
The Mountains are full of fresh snow, which gives the perfect opportunity for skiing and snowboarding! Being from California, I have yet to go skiing here and thought I would look up some of the best places to start out at. If you aren't too fond of skiing, grab a cup of coco and cozy up at the lodge. Winter has been pretty kind to us so far and I personally am loving the snow right now. Happy Winter!
With snow conditions being ideal, Shawnee Peak is said to be a great family friendly mountain perfect for beginners. I have been there once but caught horrible weather. The prices are very reasonable and lift lines are a breeze, I can't wait to go back with better snow conditions.
Sunday River seems to be one of the more popular ski mountains in Maine. The trails are well maintained and the mountain offers the second largest acreage in Maine. With over 130 trails, this mountain is perfect for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.
Sugarloaf is Maine's largest single ski mountain, stretching over 1,053 acres! The views from this tall mountain are said to be amazing. The local village offers lots to do if you aren't feeling up to skiing, a win-win for the whole family.
Saddleback has the highest base elevation in New England, making snowfall conditions ideal. The ski lift tickets are very reasonably priced and has a great rustic lodge for warming up. The trails are described as "rustic" and "classic" but at the same time are being updated frequently. Sounds like a winner to me!
