New Trails Set to Debut at Mt. Abram
Clearing of new terrain commenced in 2015.

Mt. Abram is planning to open new terrain this winter, including at least one new trail served by snowmaking.

Six recently cleared areas are set to open 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. Logging was conducted in 2015.

Snowmaking pipe from the Maine T-Bar line is being moved to a new race trail named Wassomatta U, located between Boris Badenov and Dudley Do Right.

A new expert trail named Tucker's Tumble is located off Rocky's Run. Another new expert trail, named Arr2Dee2 drops from the summit area toward the top of the Skyline chair.

Additional trail widening and crossover clearing were conducted in the vicinity of Dudley Do Right and the Skyline area, possibly for terrain park features.

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.
