Big Rock, ME – 1/29/15

Date skied: 1/29/15

Conditions: Packed powder, powder

Yesterday I found some time to make the trip to "The County" to ski Big Rock on Mars Hill in Maine. They reported a foot of new snow from Tuesday's storm and were 100% open. Got there for first chair at 3:00. Conditions were absolutely spectacular and there were only a handful of people skiing. For those that have never skied here, the mountain is just under 1000 vertical ft. The terrain from the top is mostly intermediate and advanced terrain with some steeper narrower trail off the skiers left ridge. I would compare the terrain to Mt Abram. It is truly a hidden gem for skiing in Maine. What is really cool about skiing here is the fact that the trails face west which makes for great skiing during some awesome sunsets.
