DESIGN HELP WANTED: For a new cross country trail map.
Our Friends Caleb Buerger and Jeff Haack have the majority of the cross country trails cleared and ready for snow
We will be planning a bridge work day soon. This new bridge will complete the blue trail loop that leads from the pumphouse down to the old farm and mountain view pond. Let us know if you would like to get involved in this project.

What is the best way to hike our summit? The trailhead is accessible from North Road off Route 6/15. Plan 3-4 hours for this 4.8 mile climb. The views of Moosehead Lake and our lodge are incomparable.

Mountain Update: February 25, 2016
Mild temperatures and mixed precipitation has kept us on our edges all season. Squaw Mountain will remain CLOSED through Friday, February 26th. This will allow time for cooler temperatures and better grooming opportunities in anticipation of the Weyerhaeuser Timber Classic race on Saturday, February 27th. This is an open race for all ages. Registration begins at 8:30am and racing starts at 10am.
Keep your tips up!

Sadly, we will not be able to offer any ski or board lessons today as we has planned. Conditions are just too hard and fast for beginners. We are open at 9am on our bread and butter Kennebec Trail. The Kennebec is the oldest trail on the mountain and where the story began 52 years ago. It offers views for miles.

UPDATE: February Break
The snow conditions have improved with our recent snowfall. The six inches of new snow last week has opened the majority! The last two days have been the best skiing of the year. The temperature is continuing to drop, so dress warmly and with plenty of layers.
Speaking of dropping temperatures with an expected high of -5F, and dangerously low wind chills hitting -35F, BIG SQUAW MOUNTAIN WILL BE…. CLOSED VALENTINES DAY – FEBRUARY 14. This was not a decision made lightly, but one we felt it was in the best interest and safety of our loyal guests and staff. However, we will be open for the remainder of the week through the 21st.
Our 5 miles of Nordic trails are groomed and open every day for cross country and snowshoe adventures.
Here is the schedule for the rest of February break:

Lift opens at 9am -4pm; Conjuring Carol the Magician will have family entertainment at the lodge at 1pm.
Lift opens at 9am -4pm; Our annual Heart Hunt has been rescheduled from Sunday to Tuesday! As you ski down the mountain pick up hearts that have been scattered along the trails. Trade in the hearts at the front desk in exchange for CANDY!
