We’re looking forward to a great season, but we are still working to stay safe for our guests & employees. Here’s what to know before you head to the mountain and be sure to check out our COVID-19 Safety Video at the bottom of the page. (This video was made in Winter 2021, but you get the idea – right?)
Make your reservation in advance.
Reserve lift tickets, rentals and lessons online this year, to help us control crowds and capacity.
Lessons must be booked 36-hours in advance, but Day tickets and rental equipment will be available to be reserved as long as there is still availability. So, if you wake up on a powder day and want to hit the hill, just hop online before you head out!
Stay home if you’re sick
If you’re not feeling well or if you’ve have been exposed to someone with COVID 19, just let us know and we’ll honor your reservation for another day. You can call 207-875-5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring a mask (or several!)
You’ll need a mask or face covering while you’re here. You can drop it while you’re actively skiing or riding, but please mask up for all other activities, including lift lines and indoors. It can be anything that’s at least two layers, close-fitting and covers your mouth & nose. So that means a winter gaiter is just fine, but you might want to bring a spare one or a dry mask for using indoors.
We’re asking everyone to abide by the Maine state travel guidelines. Check here before you travel!
Arrive dressed and ready
Indoor lodge space will be limited in both lodges. There will be NO bag storage, so you’ll want to arrive ready to go. Plan to boot up at your car, and only bring with you what you’ll need on the hill, (this is a great year to invest in a small backpack for essentials like snacks or extra handwarmers).
STAYING SAFE AT THE MOUNTAIN
Keep your distance
Skiing and snowboarding are great sports for social distancing, but don’t forget to leave extra space when you’re in lift lines, lodge, rental shops and all the other places we come together.
Arrive together — Ride together
We won’t ask single lift riders to pair up this year, but you can ride with members of your own party. Just make sure to wear your pass where the lift attendant can see it.
Enjoy the Outdoors
We are a small mountain and so are our lodges! Both lodges have capacity limits, but you will still be able to come inside for the bathroom and emergency warm-ups. If you expect to spend more than 10-15 minutes, we do ask that you head back to your car.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU GET HERE
Grab your lift tickets and go
When you arrive, just stop at the ticket booth on the Main side, or the Westside lodge to pick up your lift tickets.
Your car is your new base lodge
One of the best things about Mt. Abram is our nearby parking lot; you can park at either the Westside or Main lodge for an easy walk straight to the hill. That also means that you can grab food from the lodge and head back to your car to warm up or eat. Plus, we’re creating some truly slope-side parking this year, so come early to get a good spot.
Find a private getaway
We’re creating some small warming huts around the base areas. These will be large enough one family/group at a time, so enjoy them to warm up or eat lunch.
Hungry? We’ve got Takeout
Food to-go will be available at both lodges. Don’t forget the hot chocolate!
Spread out in Loose Boots
The Loose Boots Lounge is usually open from 3-9 on Thursday and Friday, 11-9 on Saturday and 11-6 on Sunday. There will be times that we must close for safety during COVID-19. Please call ahead for hours. This will be seated table service only, and our only indoor dining. We’ve expanded the space so that there’s room for tables with plenty of space.
Win some, Lose some
We won’t be able to offer daycare this year, or a Westside shuttle. But you can now pick up your rentals and check in for lessons right at the Westside Lodge, so you can head right to there.
