(November 29, 2022) - Our snowmakers are making Mother Nature proud with the size of the snowmaking cloud encompassing the mountain today. Temps have not cooperated as much as we would like to see, but we were able to fire up snowmaking last night and will be running steadily from top to bottom through the weekend. Our focus is on Tri-Color to Grey Ghost and Green Weaver. Crews are also working on Wheeler, Royal Tiger and Smelt Streamer on the lower mountain. Mark your calendar - Opening Day of the 22/23 season is set for Saturday, December 10th! We can't wait to welcome you back to #MainesFavoriteMountain.

 

Tip of the Day

 

The Pub is open with a new menu! Bold flavors and housemade ingredients are front and center. You can peep the new menu here but fair warning... don't look if you're hungry!

 

Upcoming Events

 

Opening Day weekend also aligns with Rangeley's Mountain Holly Days festivities AND our friends at Morton & Furbish are offering 15% off logding from 12/8-12/11/22. Head over to the Events Page to view the full list of upcoming on-mountain events.

 

Think snow and cold temps!
