About the Ski Resort

Big Squaw Mountain Resort is located in the beautiful Moosehead Lake Region, home to Moosehead Lake, which is forty miles long and 20 miles wide at its widest point. Truly the edge of the wilderness of the Great North Woods.

Big Squaw Mountain Resort has one of the most spectacular views in the world. Sights include Mount Kineo who's sheer 800 foot cliffs plunge into Moosehead Lake , Spencer Mountains, and of course Mount Katahdin which is Maine's highest point and the end of the Appalachian Trail. We are truly the end of the line. The view can not be described by words alone. But the words that came to the mind of world traveler Andrew Shasha was simply "prehistoric and untouched"

Big Squaw Mountain Resort boasts spectacular old fashioned New England skiing with thirty-three trails designed by world famous ski trail designer Sel Hanna to entice beginners to experts. It is an experience similar to a track thru the forest but on the chair lift. A true difference to some other New England mountains. Don't forget to try out our new glades, one of the largest glades in the east. Our Glade trails (tree skiing) were personally hand crafted by expert boarder Rich Mailey. Like to telemark ski, or snowshoe, check out our back country. It is suggested to venture our back country in pairs or groups for this is the deep woods you know.

Big Squaw Mountain Resort has snowmaking capabilities on seventy percent of it's terrain. Professional grooming provides unbelievable smooth powdery surfaces for your skiing / boarding pleasure. Big Squaw Mountain trails were designed by the world class trail designer Sel Hanna who was commonly called the Jack Nicholas of the ski resort trail designers. Sel said about Squaw Mountain - "Of all the trails I have designed the Penobscot Trail at Big Squaw Mountain is by far the most scenic".
