Retro Maine Weekend Black of Me and Mt abram
Last weekend was my one trip north this winter and we made it a retro Maine trip. Black mtn of ME was good, but only 4 runs open top to bottom. Ducked the ropes on others and had fun but was good reasons that they were closed. For a $20 lift ticket, we had a good time. SR was socked in with fog and frz rain in the am so we gladly ditched their $105 friday pass rate. Sat went to Mt Abram. Was pleasantly surprised at the coverage and grooming of the 4 snowmaking ways down the mtn, and the natural trails(including the t-bar line) were nice after they softened up(yes, another few ropes were ducked).
Both mountains should be great after the Wed/Thurs dump. Black is open Fri-Sun, Mt Abram is open Thurs-Sun. You will never have a lift wait at Black unless there is a local race and only an occasional wait at Mt Abram. Support these great smaller mountains!!! When the glades are in like they may be after this storm, both mountains can be a really fun playground!!
