A long-time Maine favorite, Mt. Abram Snow School is where generation after generation has come to learn how to ski or snowboard. Ask almost anyone who grew up in this fine State and they’ll tell you how great a place Mt Abram is to learn the joys of skiing and snowboarding! In fact, our inviting terrain is a favorite among New England ski instructors for helping their students to feel comfortable on the slopes.
We offer private, semi-private, and group lessons in each of the three snow disciplines: skiing, telemark, and snowboarding. Staying with our non-factory, skier-and-snowboard-centric mission statement, our instructors are trained in making learning fun! Classes are catered to your ability and pace. Learn to ski or ride packages include lesson, ticket and rentals for beginners.
