Winter Season – December through March

Maine’s Northwestern Region is an excellent place to celebrate the winter season if you love the outdoors. Maine might be cold, just bundle up and step outside for a variety of winter activities to enjoy. From downhill and cross-country skiing to snowshoeing and snowmobiling, we’ve got your winter adventures covered.

Each year visitors return to Maine’s Northwestern Mountains Region for all their winter activities, perhaps to enjoy a winter vacation. Families pack up their cars and head to their camp, condo or ski home for a weekend of fun and excitement.

Maine’s Northwestern Mountains Region is home to Sugarloaf Mountain, Maine’s largest ski resort for skiing and boarding with the only lift-serviced above tree-line skiing and an average of 200 inches of fresh snow every season.

A premier eco-tourism destination, Maine Huts & Trails offers an unparalleled Hut-To-Hut adventure for the day-tripper or warm, welcoming accommodations for all ages.

There is a vast network of snowmobile trails with the widest variety of trails available in Maine.

The Sugarloaf Outdoor Center has its own snowshoeing trail system and more adventurous folks can access the Appalachian Trail or the Bigelow Preserve.

Ice fishing is a fun family activity in the winter months. Just drill a hole, drop a line and make new memories.

Sledding is a family activity at Gilmore’s Hill in Kingfield – if you are there at the right time, a snowmobile will bring you up the hill for another run. Pack your camera and be sure to take pictures of your adventures.

There are many lodging and dining options available in addition to après ski fun and exciting nightlife. Even if you don’t ski, there are many other winter activities to enjoy: ice skating, cross-country skiing, hiking, Fat Tire Biking and more!
