We have had 23 inches of snow in January (including 3 inches last night), combined with snowmaking, it has given us the best snow conditions in Maine. The Kennebago Quad to the summit is open. True packed powder and powder surfaces.

The ride down America and Tricolor is incredible, the view just makes it better. Head up to the glades. Nightmare, Thrombosis, Dark Wizard and Intimidator are open.
