“Great Mountain, great price!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Not sure how everyone is complaining about price? $40 for all day skiing? That hardly breaks the bank in terms of lift ticket prices, comparable mountains like Sunapee charge upwards of $70!

Someone also mentioned slow lifts? The mid mountain and back side of the mountain are normal speed lifts, however the main lift is a triple that has actually been sped up from normal speed with the help of a magic carpet thing that picks you up to the speed of the lift.

The snow is ALWAYS in excellent condition, with trails being groomed cross the mountain ever night, and the heavily traveled beginner/intermediate area gets a mid day groom at 4PM when they are opened for night skiing.

To be honest, pick any mountain you want, there is no where else that you will be able to get this amount of runs per hour in at this price!

No lift lines, No big mountain snobs, and great snow! What more can you ask for???

The instructors were very helpful in helping me learn to ski and I always found trails that I was comfortable with and trails that challenged me! I would recommend to anyone!

Great family or solo mountain for skiing. My kids learned on it. Good lodge for lunch and viewing slopes.

“Great ski area”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Shawnee Peak is not the largest ski area in Maine or nearby New Hampshire. It is a wonderful area with a great mix of terrain. A great family area competitively priced to make skiing more affordable. Their snowmaking and grooming is first class. There are no high speed lifts here....you do not need them, I never wait more than a few minutes in line even on holiday weeks. Highly recommended.
