Located just 25 miles south of Tomhegan, visitors will find our beloved Squaw Ski Mountain. You won’t find heated gondolas and high speed chairs here, but what you will find is affordable lift tickets, ski rentals, lessons, and a quaint lodge and cafe that recalls the days where families enjoyed ski vacations together for years. What more could you ask for on your wilderness winter getaway?
Founded in 1963, Squaw Mountain has been a prized possession of the Moosehead Lake area. Once a thriving and fully functioning mountain, Squaw has a rich history and has stayed alive with the help of a passionate and dedicated community. After several years of inactivity, The Friends of Squaw Mountain was founded to give this mountain new life as a non-profit ski area. The trails have not changed much at all since the 1960s, lending the mountain both a rich heritage and a classic New England feel. Learn more at www.skibigsquaw.com or on their Facebook page.
The cafe is operated by Chef Abby Freethy of Northwoods Gourmet Girl and offers a delicious, locally-sourced, from scratch menu. The lounge is a great place to grab a bite to eat during your day at the mountain or a cozy place to relax and unwind as the family hits the slopes.
Looking to take on a different winter sport, the mountain also offers 10k of groomed trails open for cross country skiing, snowshoeing or winter biking!
Squaw Mountain is open half days on Thursdays, Friday-Sunday and school holidays (except Christmas) from 9AM to 4PM throughout the winter season. Kids 6 and under kids free! Please visit their website for trail conditions and additional information.
