We all want to ski and ride. And we all need to follow guidelines to maintain the health and safety of you, our guests, our staff and our communities.

We’re doing our part:

• Increased cleaning and disinfection
• Following state and local regulations

Here’s how you can help us:
• Plan ahead so you know what to expect
• Wear your face covering
• Follow distancing protocols
• Arrive together, ride together
• Stay home if you feel sick

2020-2021 Snow Bowl Operation Details

Details below are subject to change, as Maine’s pandemic situation evolves. As state officials adjust reopening guidelines, the Snow Bowl will adjust restrictions and plans to help best maintain the safety and well-being of guests, staff and the community.

2020-2021 Camden Snow Bowl Season Pass Buyer’s COVID-19 Assurance

Based on what we know now, we do not believe COVID-19 will prevent the Camden Snow Bowl from opening this winter. In the event things change and we are not able to open at all this winter due to additional government-mandated shutdowns, our season passes remain nonrefundable, but the Camden Snow Bowl will now apply full or partial credit of paid 2020-2021 season passes toward 2021-2022 passes. Credit is non-transferable.

This assurance applies specifically to the risks associated with COVID-19. Operating dates affected by weather are not applicable in this assurance.

If, due to COVID-19, the Camden Snow Bowl opening is delayed beyond January 1st, all paid passholders will receive a pro-rated credit for the time lost, to be automatically applied to their 2021-2022 season pass purchase. If, due to COVID-19, the Camden Snow Bowl closes before March 1st, all pass holders will receive a pro-rated credit to be automatically applied to the 2021-2022 season pass purchase.
