With 40 trails, two terrain parks, five ski lifts and lessons for all ages, Shawnee Peak Ski Area is a great option for families looking to hit the slopes in the winter. The mountain is located in Bridgton, Maine, about one hour from Portland, and offers three clinics for kids between 4 and 12, as well as programs for children between 3 months and 6 years. But it isn’t just for winter — Shawnee Peak has great summer fun, too. Families can spend days picking blueberries and hiking, and nights in cozy cabins on the lake. Enjoy canoeing and other water sports during a summer vacation to the mountain, too. Onsite dining is available for all your family meals, as well.
Winter season passes start from $355 per adult and from $75 per child 5 and under.
