I highly recommend this medium-sized ski resort to any level of skier. It is somewhat affordable, with short lift lines & fast service. The town of Bridgton that the mountain is situated in is absolutely beautiful!

We have been Shawnee Peak twice in the last two weeks. The skiers in my family love the short lift lines the variety of trails. My husband is an experienced skier who is now taking our children. The mountain has enough choices for all of them. I hang out in the lodge and stay warm and cozy while they ski. Our children also did a lesson last week and we highly respect their ski school. They taught our kids to ski last winter and continue to help them develop this year. We have stayed for the skiing under the lights which has been a lot of fun for everyone and gives you a nice long day to ski.

If you are looking for a Medium Size Quality Ski Experience for your family without having to take a second mortgage all within an hour drive of Portland, ME and 2.5 hours from Boston, Shawnee Peak Ski Area should be on your short list. Shawnee is "Your Maine Mountain"......translation without the corporate, plastic, nonpersonal feeling you get from many of the other large ski areas. The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable.......this place simply screams VALUE with a tremendous daily commitment to quality snow conditions via a dedicated snowmaking/groming staff. You will not be dissapointed when you give Shawnee Ski Area a visit, Day or Night!

My husband and I have been skiing at Shawnee Peak (Pleasant Mountain) for 20+ years. We live in Texas now, so our kids had not had the opportunity to ski when they were younger. We spent a long holiday weekend in Bridgton and signed the kids up for lessons all 3 days. From never having put on ski equipment to skiing down the intermediate trails...that is how awesome the instructors at Shawnee Peak were for our kids! What an awesome 3 days! The snow-making and natural snow were perfect, the lines were short and considering it was a holiday weekend...that was incredible. The lodge has plenty of seating inside but my favorite was sitting on the decks outside watching the skiers. Another FUN element to this mountain is the NIGHT skiing! The lighting is fantastic and the mountain sparkles...so much fun!
