Skiers at Big Squaw Mountain

It is good to see Big Squaw Mountain open and people skiing!

I was able to get some shots of the course set up for the team.  The course looked fast with packed snow…

hope they had some “good times“!

The views from the slopes of the mountain (which is also referred to as Big Moose Mountain) are of Moosehead Lake and surrounding mountain ranges.   They are spectacular!   Skiing on weekends is just one of the many activities that

Moosehead Lake and Greenville have to offer.

Snowmobiling is the #1 past time up here…if you don’t have a snowmobile we have businesses that specialize in renting you everything you will need…plus a guide if you want one.

A vacation in New England would not be complete without trying your hand at Ice Fishing…how many people do you know that have actually tried it?!  We have guides that will take care of all the details…even pick you up at our doorstep.

Dog-sledding is another one of those experiences that you can only do in a northern climate…it is one of the most relaxing ways to go sightseeing!

Some of our guests have gone snow-shoeing and have had a moose sighting…moose safaris are the #1 requested excursion in the spring, summer & fall.

Let us plan a Winter Wonderland for you!

Come see our “point of view”

This is really our view of the Little and Big Moose Mountains (previously named Big & Little Squaw Mountains).

Moosehead Lake is surrounded by some magnificent mountains:

  • Big Moose Mountain-(previously known as Big Squaw Mountain) At 3,196 feet, Big Moose Mountain dominates the view to the west from the Moosehead Lake area. The view from the top of the mountain is famous for viewing the Moosehead region and its many lakes and mountains.  This mountain was home to the first fire tower in the United States, built by M.G. Show in 1905.
  • Little Moose Mountain-The Little Moose Mountain Trail provides 9 miles of hiking along the ridgeline from one scenic overlook to the next. Hikers then descend into a forested bowl containing the Moose Ponds, an area that feels truly remote, but only 3 miles from town.

  • Elephant Mountain- looks like the profile of an elephant-it really does!  On January 24th, 1963, a B-52 Stratofortress-C crashed with 2 of its  9 crew surviving the -14 degree temperature.  Every year there is a Memorial Snowmobile Ride  to the wreckage on Elephant Mountain in honor of the brave men who served during the “Cold War”.
  • Little Spencer Mountain-Little Spencer Mountain climbs to 2,992 feet (911.96 meters) above sea level. Little Spencer Mountain is located at latitude – longitude coordinates (also called lat – long coordinates or GPS coordinates) of N 45.759208 and W -69.528389.
  • Big Spencer Mountain-(also called Number Four Mountain)this mountain has a 2,890 foot summit and has a fire tower, the fourth ever erected in Maine, which was active for nearly eighty-five years from 1906 until 1991.
  • Mount Kineo-this has  700-foot (210 m) cliffs rising straight up from the water, is a dramatic setting that has attracted visitors for centuries.
