New Trail Clearing Continues at Mt. Abram
New Trail Clearing Continues at Mt. Abram
Terrain expansion reportedly the area's largest in nearly 30 years.

Logging operations have continued this fall at Mt. Abram, as the western Maine ski area rolls out its terrain expansion project.

Use of the Flying Squirrel logging landing looks to be complete, as recent logging on the new race trail appears to be staged from the main parking lot.

Six areas are proposed to be cut across the mountain, providing new terrain for all abilities. The expansion is likely Mt. Abram's largest since the West Side area and chairlift debuted in 1988-89.

After years of financial problems and ownership changes, the Greenwood ski area was sold to Matt Hancock and Rob Lally in 2008. Five years later, Mountain Rider's Alliance was hired to operate the area.

The vintage lift infrastructure includes two double chairlifts and two T-Bars. A temporary lodge has been in use since the main lodge burned in 2011.

A solar farm was constructed adjacent to the base area in 2014.
