You just let one of your kids go off alone to soar through the terrain park, while you enjoy coasting down wide-open terrain on one of the Snow Bowl’s new runs. But you are not worried. It’s a friendly Maine town. Besides, every one of the 20 runs ends at the lodge, so everybody shows up there eventually. You also felt comfortable dropping your other kid at the conveyor lift with a friendly, certified ski-school instructor — who just happens to moonlight as a schooner captain. Both kids are perfectly geared up too, thanks to the well-appointed rental facility and full-service ski shop. And you’re happy it will be a good skiing for everybody, because 80 percent of the mountain has snowmaking capability, with recently expanded night skiing. So ride up the new 4,000-foot triple lift at the only ski destination on the East Coast with stunning views of the ocean. And when it is all over, enjoy Midcoast Maine’s award-winning restaurants, scenic harbor views, and vibrant art scene. The town-owned Snow Bowl is fun for the whole family, on and off the mountain.

Ski the Sea

The Snow Bowl has that friendly small-town feel, and still rivals the best mountains in Maine, with nearly 1,000 feet of vertical elevation and more than 20 recently expanded runs.

Nestled among picturesque harbors, charming inns and award-winning restaurants, it is also the only ski area on the East Coast with ocean views.

Season passes are available as well as day tickets, and equipment can be both rented and purchased on site. Gift cards in any denomination, for any service at the Snow Bowl, are available for purchase.

The Snow Bowl is also home to the country's only remaining original, gravity-operated 400-foot-long wooden toboggan chute. Tobogganers exit the chute onto frozen Hosmer Pond for a thrilling ride from top to bottom. Each year in February, the Snow Bowl hosts the U.S. National Toboggan Championships, a weekend of competitive racing - in costume - capped by finals and awards for the fastest teams in a variety of divisions.
