About the Snow Bowl: Click here to learn more
The Camden Snow Bowl is a town owned ski and recreation area, operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation. From the summit of 1300' Ragged Mountain, skiers and riders have an incredible view of Penobscot Bay and the surrounding hills. The Camden Snow Bowl is "where the mountains meet the sea". Two lifts currently serve 850' of vertical, with a third lift due by Fall 2015. The brand new triple chairlift (click here for more info on the triple chairlift) and a conveyor lift in the expanded beginner area service the fifteen trails and terrain park. All trails lead back to a classic A-frame lodge where you will find all services. The Camden Snow Bowl has a Ski and Ride School, an active youth racing program, adult racing, a fully qualified ski patrol and a full rental shop. Coastal Maine sees its share of big winter storms, but we have a snowmaking system that covers 85% of our area to ensure plenty of skiing and riding.There are two trails available for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Most Alpine trails are groomed daily. In addition to Alpine and Nordic skiing and snowboarding, there are other winter activities available at the Camden Snow Bowl including ice skating on Hosmer pond and a thrilling 400' toboggan chute. The National Toboggan Championships are held here the first weekend of February and the Jack Williams Toboggan Chute is open to the public most weekends and school vacations.
A year round recreation area, the Camden Snow Bowl offers hiking, mountain biking, tennis courts, ball fields and a summer youth rec program. Fishing, boating and swimming are possible on the tranquil Hosmer pond. In the autumn, there are fall foliage pancake breakfasts and chairlift rides. Facility rentals are available all year for parties, weddings and reunions. Call the office (207)236-3438 or email us for more information.
