Fort Kent, ME
|I visited this ski area in
August of 1994 while on a Boy Scout canoe trip along the Fish River in
northern Maine. I had never heard of it before, but noticed the area
from our campsite in Fort Kent. My dad (who was along for the trip) and
I checked the area out. It had a few T-bars and a rope tow. I took some
pics, which have since disappeared, unfortunately. The area has a 600'
drop, and as you can see by this aerial shot on the right, quite a few
Andrea Elliott Norris has some info on this area: There is a small ski area in Northern Maine called Lonesome Pine Trails. It is still open. This year (2001) a season ticket for adults is 145.00, free season ticket for kids in 3rd grade and below. It is a really nice little hill located in downtown Fort Kent. It has no snowmaking capabilities but the season goes from mid December to April, and the conditions are usually good. We get a lot of natural snow up here. Services include base lodge, cafeteria bar rental shop ski school and a t-bar and pony lift. Not a lot of vertical drop but really fun to ski.
Have you skied here? Let us know about it if so.
