Great snow, fine weather, what a perfect winter to learn to ski or snowboard, and the Maine Ski and Ride Card makes it easy and affordable (everything’s relative, I know).
Here’s the deal:
Purchase the $89 Ski and Ride Card at Lost Valley in Auburn, Titcomb in Farmington, or the Camden Snow Bowl, in Camden. It provides three days of skiing or riding as follows:
Day 1: Lifts, lesson, and rental equipment at Titcomb, Lost Valley, or Camden Snow Bowl
Day 2: Lifts and rental equipment at Titcomb, Lost Valley, or Camden Snow Bowl
Day 3: Graduation to Sunday River or Sugarloaf, including lifts and rental equipment.
I like this program because it allows you to learn the basics on a small, community-oriented hill, away from the hotshots and reducing the temptation to go beyond your abilities. Then, once you’ve managed turning and stopping, you can head up to one of Maine’s big guns and apply those new skills and see what all the fuss is about.
