### Authors Says ###
Maine has long been a skier's paradise, whose iconic peaks such as Sugarloaf, Sunday River, and Saddleback often have more challenging types of snow cover than the deep powder that is the norm for western mountains. Now, Maine Ski Hall of Famer John Christie, author of the definitive history of the resort at Sugarloaf and veteran of Maine's ski industry, teams up with his son Josh to guide skiers to all the best places. Every public ski mountain or hill in the state is listed, along with pertinent information about trails, amenities, conditions, and personal anecdotes and suggestions from the authors, who have skied at all of them. Included are destinations for cross-country and downhill skiing, so no matter your preference, you'll be able to get out enjoy the white stuff.
