Ski Experience - Shawnee Peak

This ski area was designed to compete with the smaller New England ski resorts that draw families and novice skiers, while simultaneously courting those who usually head for the larger resorts. It's the “just right” ski experience for beginning, intermediate, and advanced skiers.

Ski Levels

The emphasis is on family, learning, and safety on the slopes. With 44 trails and two terrain parks, every skier can find something to enjoy. Racing clinics, a top notch ski school, an array of private and group lessons for all ages and experience levels are available. Not to mention night skiing and night terrain park riding. Mattress races and a variety of other NASTAR ski races and events help boost their reputation as a family ski resort.

Après Ski

The mountain hosts many exciting winter events, including the Musher's Bowl and Winter Carnival, a Moonlight Ski-athon and the yearly Family Fest complete with outdoor activities, entertainment, a pie-eating contest, and more. In nearby Bridgton, ME, families can check out historic heritage centers, and engage in wintry outdoor activities, an art gallery featuring 60 local artists and a beautiful Civil War monument are great places to visit while in the area.

Dining at Shawnee Peak is designed for families and those who want the standard pub and American fare. A café is open from breakfast until the lifts close and offers basic dishes like sandwiches, burgers, hearty soups, and healthy salads. Hot and cold beverages, candy, and deli items are available at the resort as well. There's also a pub that doubles as a full-service restaurant on the mountain.

For après-ski, there's a full-service restaurant and bar located slope side as well as some neighborhood pubs in Bridgton and North Conway.
