Shawnee Peak looks just like a ski mountain should, and pleases a wide range of visitors.

 
 

 

Shawnee Peak Ski Area looks just like a ski peak should, viewed from US Hwy 302 (map) across broad Moose Pond (as in the photo to the right.)—>

Pleasant Mountain's vertical drop of 1300 feet (396 meters) from the 1900-foot summit is traversed by 40 trails (10 Beginner, 18 Intermediate, 12 Expert) served by 5 ski lifts, including a quad and two triple chairlifts.

There are lots of long Intermediate cruising trails—the kind I like. Four of the trails are glades, and fully 19 trails are illuminated for nighttime skiing and riding.

Even the 400-foot (122-meter) snowboarding half-pipe is lit for night riding.

Shawnee Peak's two base lodges have cafeterias. The Blizzards Pub has table service and live entertainment.

Day care is available right at the resort for children from 3 months to 6 years.

Shawnee Peak was the first ski area in Maine to install a T-bar and chairlift (1950s). It continued its innovation by installing the Summit Triple Chairlift, which has a conveyor loading system: you stp onto a moving belt and slide into your chair seat on the move, which allows the lift to operate more speedily.
