The Maine Office of Tourism, in collaboration with Ski Maine Association and the Maine Snowmobile Association (MSA), reports that this week will mark this winter season’s final snow report, still with plenty of skiing and snowmobiling opportunities available.

Spring Skiing

Sugarloaf, in Carrabassett Valley and Sunday River in Newry will continue daily operations with snow bases of up to four feet. Both areas traditionally offer skiing and riding as late at May 1, with noteworthy spring celebrations like Reggae Fest and Spring Fest Weekend.

A total of seven Maine ski centers will be in operation this weekend. In addition to Sugarloaf and Sunday River, BigRock in Mars Hill, Big Squaw in Greenville, Black Mountain of Maine in Rumford, Lost Valley in Auburn and Lonesome Pine Trails in Fort Kent will operate both Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.

“From my perspective, I am happy to announce this week’s snowstorm marks seven consecutive months of snowfall in Maine,” said Greg Sweetser, executive director of Ski Maine. “While I understand that many folks are thinking about summer activities, we are still in our last full month of skiing and snowboarding in the mountains.”

Maine Snowmobiling

In some regions of the state like Aroostook County, there is still plenty of riding available. Snowmobile trail conditions are updated daily and should be checked prior to heading out for a ride as spring conditions can quickly alter the trails.

MSA Executive Director Bob Meyers said, “It has been an exceptional snowmobiling season here in Maine. With 90,000 snowmobile registrations this year, the groomers and the snowmobile clubs have done an incredible job maintaining thousands of miles of trails.”
