Winter Fun

It’s winter and it’s Maine. Time for fun.

Sure, it may be cold and getting dark (soon). But Mainers don’t let that stop them, so why should you? We recommend:

Night Skiing

Skiing under the lights is a tradition in Maine. Some skiers add some night turns to their ski days; others ski after work; still others join nighttime racing teams. Here’s some spots to join them.

Black Mountain Rumford

Camden Snowbowl Camden

Lost Valley Auburn

New Hermon Mountain Hermon

Shawnee Peak Bridgton

Spruce Mountain Jay

Sunday River Newry

Titcomb Mountain Farmington

Holiday Festivals

Winter is prime festival season throughout Maine. Parades, special shopping days, Christmas tree lightings and Santa arrivals are common throughout. Some of those festivals are:

Boothbay Lights

Maine’s museums host marvelous exhibits during the colder months. Some include:
