Logo   Mount Abram Ski Area, Greenwood ME
A medium-size ski & snowboard area not far from similar Black Mountain and much larger Sunday River Ski Resort.



Besides Black Mountain of Maine, the mountains between Rumford and Bethel (map) can boast Mt Abram Ski Area, a good medium-sized, locally-owned family resort with a vertical drop of 1150 feet (351 meters), 51 downhill trails (11 Beginner, 27 Intermediate, 11 Advanced, and 2 Expert) served by five ski lifts, including two double chair lifts and two fixed-grip T-bars.

Four terrain parks keep snowboarders and freestyle skiers happy, as do the six trails illuminated for nighttime skiing and riding.

Mt Abrams' 1325-foot (404-meter) snowtubing park is Maine's largest, and is illuminated for nighttime runs, which are great fun (and easy on the leg muscles) after a full day of skiing or snowboarding.

Snowmaking covers 85% of the trails to supplement an annual snowfall of 125 inches (3.18 meters).

The atmosphere here is friendly, family, homey and old-time: the simple pleasure of skiing without the hype or expense.

For variety, medium-sized Black Mountain Ski Area is 24 miles (39 km) to the north, and large, active Sunday River Ski Resort is 10 miles (16 km) northwest, only about a 20-minute drive.

Portland is 59 miles (96 km) south of Greenwood.
