About the Ski Resort

Many people believe that the name Owl's Head was derived from the contour of the mountains peak said to resemble an owl's head. This conception is refuted by folklore passed down through successive generations from the original settlers families which confirm that this unusual name originated from an Indian tribe who inhabited the area.

Decades ago the mountain was developed into a recreational area and its' original name was retained to preserve the identity and spirit of the original inhabitants.

Today, Owl's Head is the jewel of the region with multiple lifts and trails to entice any skier and rider. Whether you want to enjoy the alpine skiing or just take in the scenery, Owls's Head fits the bill.
