Logo   Black Mountain Ski Area, Rumford ME
Black Mountain is a good, accessible ski and snowboard area with something for everyone.



Black Mountain of Maine Ski Resort, a few miles west of Rumford ME (map), has 20 alpine ski trails (4 Beginner, 10 Intermediate, 6 Expert) on a 1120-foot (341-meter) vertical drop.

Its five ski lifts include a triple and a double chair lift. The snowboarders' terrain park includes a 300-foot (91-meter) half-pipe as well as grind rails and a table.

Average annual snowfall here is 110 inches (2.8 meters), and Black Mountain of Maine is equipped to cover 65% of its trails with its own-made snow.

From Thursday through Saturday a half-dozen trails are illuminated for night skiing and snowboarding.

Nordic skiers enjoy more than 10 miles (16 km) of groomed cross-country trails.

Black Mountain's neighbor, Mt Abram Ski Resort, is 24 miles (39 km) to the south, about a 45-minute drive.
