Snow Sports in Maine

Maine, United States, North America: we mention that Maine has snow, too? A powdery day at Sunday River ski resort
Concierge.com's insider take:

Maine has an average annual snowfall of 60 to 90 inches—not exactly Utah powder, but enough to lure plenty of hard-core skiers and snowboarders to the slopes at Sunday River, which has 668 skiable acres and 131 trails near Bethel (800-543-2754; www.sundayriver.com), and Sugarloaf/USA (207-237-2000; www.sugarloaf.com), whose 1,400 acres and 133 trails twist above the Carrabassett Valley. Some of the state's best cross-country terrain surrounds the Bethel Inn; the Appalachian Mountain Club's Little Lyford Pond Camps are also recommended. These rustic log cabins are set on 37,000 acres of protected wilderness in the Moosehead Lake region, a haven for nordic skiers and dogsledders when the snow falls (603-466-2727; www.outdoors.org).

A highlight of the Maine winter are the Toboggan National Championships at the Camden Snow Bowl: Teams devise wacky names (Frozen Assets, Slederal Agents) and costumes (Night of the Living Sl'ead) and fly down a specially crafted track (207-236-3438; www.camdensnowbowl.com/tobogganNat.cfm). Jonesing for a bit more juice under the caboose? Maine is also nuts about snowmobiling; some 13,000 miles of trails cater to sledheads. Arrange a tour through Northern Outdoors or the Maine Snowmobile Association (207-622-6983; www.mesnow.com).
