Maine offers four season landscapes with something for everyone. Today many vacationers to Maine are enjoying the coastal beaches and inland lakes. Some hiking Baxter And Acadia state parks, or paddling the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. But others are enjoying the moment but not thinking about winter with a sense of dissapointment. On the contrary, Maine's ski areas are preparing for the upcoming down hill season today. Oh sure, if you wander into the larger Maine ski areas today, you will be routed into information on the golf courses that many have adopted to take up the slack when the ground is not covered with a blanket of fresh white snow. These sites have a winter / summer feature to shift gears depending on the vist you make to the site. Visit Maine's two largest ski areas to cool off at
Or if you are interested in some of the smaller Maine ski venues, double click Mars Hill's pride and joy above www.BigRockMaine.com or Rangeley's www.saddlebackmaine.com or venture into Upper Haynesville, New Brunswick to www.crabbemountain.com which the kids and I have experienced many many times. The Canadian discount on the America dollar is at an all time low, but when there was a forty percent exchange rate, Crabbe Mountain was an especially good family value. When the kids were small like this image, no poles needed and Dad had to be pretty quick to keep up with the little skiiers that weave in and around you at warp speeds almost undected below radar until after they dart by. Maine ski areas are reasonably priced, free of crime, offering plenty of real estate space to enjoy the great scenery and beauty of this Northern New England state that borders Canada on three sides. Dig out your skis and plan that winter trip to break up the longest season today. See you on the mountain. You never know who you will meet in the next chair lift ride up the peak. This is a sport for all ages and for life!
