Looking out across the snowy pines and down the wintry slopes of the mountain is a rush. This is Maine’s best-kept secret: the adventures and activities of winter. If you live for the chilly thrill of winter sports, you’ll love Maine in the winter.

  • Over 200 inches of snow fall here annually, ensuring that you’ll have the ideal winter wonderland. Snowboard, snowshoe, snowmobile, or just come to relax by a crackling fireplace at a ski-in, ski-out lodge or cabin. Cross-country skiing allows the Maine winter sports enthusiast a chance to glide over the snow-blanketed forests, while downhill skiing provides an icy shot of adrenaline.
  • Maine has over 14,000 miles of spectacular snowmobile trails for sledding enthusiasts, including the well-groomed and well-marked Interconnected Trail System (ITS). And if dogsledding is an item on your bucket list, you can cross it off here, too.
  • Resorts like the Sunday River and Sugarloaf are the heart of Maine’s winter activity. There are mid-size mountains throughout the state. One of the world’s best toboggan runs is at the Camden Snow Bowl.
  • If you love winter for its ability to provide hours of quiet reflection and the chance for serenity, a winter hike will bring you your moment of Zen. Oceanfront hiking trails remain warmer in the winter thanks to the circulating waters of the Atlantic Ocean, leaving them open for wintry exploration.
  • Just because the lakes are frozen over doesn’t mean we stop fishing, either. Spend the day outside (or in a cozy shanty) with family and friends, or participate in one of the many ice fishing derbies around the state each winter.
