Ski and Board Down This Mountain in Maine for Only Five Bucks
With skiing and snowboarding season right around the corner, many people throughout Maine will be faced with a pair of legitimate questions. And most of them will have to do with money.
For experienced skiers and boarders, the challenge is almost always time versus money. They know what lift tickets will cost, but will they have enough time to enjoy the mountain to justify the expenditure?
For inexperienced skiers and boarders, the question of whether or not to spend some serious cash just to learn is a completely different mental challenge to overcome.
So when it comes to places in Maine where you can leisurely ski, board, or just learn a little at your own place, is there any place that is truly inexpensive? The answer is yes.
That place would be Powderhouse Hill, a small, city-run ski mountain in South Berwick, Maine. Since it's municipal-owned, the city isn't out to cash-in on the use of the mountain. Instead, they've aimed to make it affordable for everyone.
Powderhouse Hill charges five bucks to use the mountain. Yes, that's not a typo. Five dollars and you can ski and board down the mountain as many times as you'd like during that given day.
If you're looking for a fancy ski area with plenty of perks and frills, Powderhouse won't be it for you. But depending on where you're located in Maine or New Hampshire, it can be a great place to get some quick lessons in or just a few runs during the day or evening.
