Camden Snow Bowl Terrain

The Town of Camden, known as "Where the Mountains Meet the Sea", is the home of the Camden Snow Bowl. The Snow Bowl is the only ski area in the "lower 48 states" that allows skiers and riders to enjoy views of the Atlantic Ocean and coastal islands. Grooming is always excellent. Most of the mountain is intermediate terrain, but there is something for all levels including glade skiing, a good sized terrain park, and a few steep sections to challenge the experts. With a newly upgraded snowmaking system on almost half the terrain, you can count on plenty of snow typically from Christmas through mid-March.

The Terrain Park has two sections and consists of rails, boxes, walls and jumps of various sizes and difficulties. It is managed and was developed by a group of local high school kids, with donated funding and professional terrain park design consultation. Inverted aerials are not recommended. Each March there is a slopestyle terrain park contest.

What's New This Season at Camden Snow Bowl

We plan to cut another section of glade that will begin just below the top of the chairlift and join up with the two lower sections of the glade that were cut in the last few years. This one will be the most challenging yet, steeper and narrower than the others. It should provide a real sweet, heart pounding drop through the trees when we get lucky with those big coastal snow storms. Another big project this fall is the extension of the Terrain Park into the woods above the existing Park on Half Hitch, and a new diagonal trail that joins lower Mussel Ridge with the top of Foxy. Anyone heading from Mussel Ridge over to Foxy will no longer have to ski uphill on the traverse to get there. Snowboarders and racers will be especially happy about this improvement.
