“Ski the Sea!” An affordable, and easily accessible ski area. My family has really appreciated the youth ski lessons for our kids. The instructors have been great.

LOVE the Snow Bowl! They are doing their best to keep everyone safe by enforcing mask and social distancing guidelines. The staff is wonderful, the mountain is great, just all so highly regarded and recommended. And it’s practically in my backyard!

Beautifully run ski hill by the Town of Camden – what a unique asset for the community. Never saw so many happy kids, teenagers, and young adults having wholesome fun just down the road from their homes. As a senior skier, I’ve been down a lot of slopes across the country and this place stands out as uniquely genuine.

What to expect at the Snow Bowl this ski season…

We are looking forward to a great season, but it certainly will not be a winter like any other. The following information is provided so you can be more informed and prepared before you head to the mountain for some winter fun with us! There are lots of changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we have made them with state guidelines for the ski industry and our ski and ride community at heart. One of the best ways to be safe is to be prepared. So read on…

PLAN AHEAD: One of the most important actions you can take when heading outdoors.

Purchase lift tickets in advance: When you know the date you want to ski, pre-purchase lift tickets (via You can pre-purchase tickets online same day! Lift tickets can also be purchased on site same day, but then allow yourself extra time as fewer people are allowed into the ticket office this year, due to occupancy limits
NEW: Rental equipment MUST be requested in advance. No walk-in, same day rentals will be processed for the remainder of the season. Visit the rental tab on our website for prices, download and complete the request form and email it by 4 p.m. the day PRIOR to arrival to This new step will help further minimize indoor contact between staff and guests, and keep lines more manageable. Advance-request rental equipment is subject to availability, and all requests received in time will be confirmed via email by Snow Bowl staff.
Monitor your health and the health of your children at all times. If you are not feeling well, stay home or go home. If you have been exposed to someone with COVID 19, or have to leave the mountain due to not feeling well, let us know and we will honor your lesson or rental reservation for another day. You can call 207-236-3438 or email
Bring a face covering (…several): You will need a mask or face covering while you are here. And keeping an extra in your car is recommended, in case you lose one while skiing or riding. REMEMBER: Please mask up for all other activities, including while waiting in lift lines, standing around warming areas and while using the portable toilets. A face covering can be anything that is comprised of at least two layers, is close-fitting and covers your mouth and nose. That means a winter gaiter is fine, but you might want to bring a spare one or a dry mask for a spare.
Arrive dressed and ready for the outdoors: Indoor lodge space this season is limited to staff only, due to Covid-19. The indoor public restrooms are also for staff only, with three sets of portable toilets conveniently located around the parking lot. The ticket desk and rental shop building is limited to three customers at a time. There will be NO personal storage on site, so pack what you need for the day in your vehicle. Plan to boot up at your car, and only bring with you what you will need on the mountain. Arrive ready to hit the slopes and have fun!

STAYING SAFE AT THE MOUNTAIN: It is everybody’s responsibility, especially this year.

Keep your distance: Skiing and snowboarding are great sports for social distancing, but do not forget to leave extra space when you are in lift lines, picking up lift tickets and rentals, and all the other places we come together. Help and remind each other, with kindness and a smile. Reciprocate with a smile, maybe a “thanks.”
Arrive together — Ride together
Single lift riders will not be asked to pair up this year, but you can ride with members of your own party.  Just make sure to wear your pass/ticket where the lift attendant can see it.
Wear your season pass or grab your lift tickets and go! Season pass holders can go straight from their vehicles to the mountain and get in line for a lift. Those in need of their pre-purchased ticket or day-of ticket can stop at the ticket bump-out on the deck behind the lodge. If you are coming for pre-arranged lessons or rentals, head to the white ticket and rental shop building adjacent to the lodge. One person per party, please.  Staff will be on hand to guide you.
Pack some “creature comforts” and kids’ entertainment in your car, and make sure the gas tank is full. Tailgating and setting up barbeques in the parking lot is not permitted for safety reasons. Please be mindful – there is much more foot traffic in the parking lot than a normal year due to everyone booting up and eating in their cars. PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY THROUGH THE LOT! 
Food to-go will be available outside at the Big T snack shack, next to Side Country Sports, at the edge of the parking lot. There are a few outdoor areas with picnic tables and fires that you are welcome to eat at. The “Shack” is open the same hours as the mountain.
Thanks for your patience and support. We appreciate your season pass and day ticket purchases. Our staff has been hard at work for months getting the mountain, systems and services “pandemic-ready” as well as ski- and ride-ready. All of the necessary changes for this year have required lots of planning, and even more implementation. We are grateful beyond words for our guests and supporters.
