The Camden Snow Bowl is a community owned ski and four-season recreation area. From the summit of 1,300-foot Ragged Mountain - home to the Snow Bowl’s trails - skiers and riders have an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a view unlike any other on the East Coast.

The Snow Bowl really is “Where the mountains meet the sea" and where you can "Ski the Sea."

A year-round recreation area, the Camden Snow Bowl offers hiking, mountain biking, tennis courts, ball fields and summer youth recreation day-camp programs in conjunction with Penobscot Bay YMCA. Fishing, boating and swimming are possible on tranquil Hosmer Pond. And many four-legged friends and their owners are often found recreating together at the Snow Bowl. In the autumn, there are fall foliage chairlift rides and pancake breakfasts, as well as outdoor events.

Facility rentals are available all year for parties, weddings, reunions, business meetings and socials gatherings.

In addition to alpine skiing and snowboarding, there are many other winter activities available at the Snow Bowl. A thrilling 400-foot-long wood toboggan chute provides fun for all family members, with cross country skiing, snowshoeing and fat tire biking on the mountain's multi-use trails and ice skating on Hosmer Pond.The U.S. National Toboggan Championships are also held here each February.

Three lifts serve 850 feet of vertical terrain. Two chairlifts, and a surface conveyer lift in the beginner area, service as many as 20 runs and two terrain parks. All trails lead back to the Snow Bowl's rustic A-frame lodge, where you can watch the slope action through the wall of windows. The Snow Bowl has a ski and snowboard school, full rental shop, an active youth racing program and a fully qualified ski patrol. Coastal Maine sees its share of big winter storms, but we have a snow-making system that covers 80 percent of our trails, to ensure plenty of skiing and riding. Most trails are groomed daily.

During the warmer months, the Snow Bowl is home to the Maine Lobster Ride, an annual event being organized in 2019 by Camden Parks and Recreation and Penoboscot Bay YMCA, lead sponsors Ragged Mountain Sports and Specialized Bicycles, as well as the Bicycle Coalition of Maine. The Ragged Mountain Scuttle and the Snow Bowl Trail Fest are also held at the Snow Bowl. This summer, the Snow Bowl will fill with the sounds of live music, as Jazz in June kicks off June 14 and 15.

March 26 was bittersweet, as we made the difficult decision to close for the season, effective immediately. The 2020-2021 ski season has been unprecedented in numerous ways. First, Mother Nature did not bless us with buckets of natural snow like she has in past years. Second, Covid-19 upended ...
