Logo   Lost Valley Ski Area, Auburn ME



Lost Valley Ski Area is a small family area 5.6 miles (9 km) northwest of the center of Auburn, Maine (map), a 15-minute drive.

Lost Valley's 15 trails (6 Beginner, 5 Intermediate, 4 Expert) on a vertical drop of 240 feet (73 meters) are reached by two double chair lifts and one surface lift.

The 100-inch (254-cm) annual snowfall is supplemented by 100% snowmaking—and Lost Valley claims to be the first ski area in Maine to have used snowmaking equipment.

It was also the first to provide lighted trails for night skiing.

Lost Valley is a great place to learn skiing and to practice your turns: few speeding hotshots will imperil your efforts.

Is it "too easy?" Well, three-time US winter Olympian Julie Parisien began her career here by learning to ski at the age of two.

The Beaver Snowboard Park and Otter Slide Terrain Park keep snowboarders happy.

The base lodge has a full-service ski shop, equipment rentals, a cozy fieldstone fireplace, and a café serving sandwiches, salads and snacks.

The Brookside Lounge serves alcoholic beverages, and has live entertainment on weekends.
