Camden Snow Bowl
The Camden Snow Bowl is a community owned ski and recreation area. From the summit of 1300′ Ragged Mountain, home to the Snow Bowl’s trails, skiers and riders have an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a view quite unlike any other in the east. The Camden Snow Bowl really is “where the mountains meet the sea”.
In addition to alpine skiing and snowboarding, there are many other winter activities available at the Snow Bowl. A snow tubing slope provides fun for all family members, ice skating on Hosmer pond and a thrilling 400′ toboggan chute. The US National Toboggan Championships are held here the first weekend of February. There is also a cross country ski and snowshoeing trail available.
Four lifts serve 850′ of vertical. One chairlift, two T-Bars and a surface lift in the beginner area service the ten trails and a terrain park. All trails lead back to a classic A-frame lodge where you will find all services. The Camden Snow Bowl has a ski and snowboard school, full rental shop, an active youth racing program and a fully qualified ski patrol. Coastal Maine sees its share of big winter storms, but we have a snowmaking system that covers 45% of our area to ensure plenty of skiing and riding. Most trails are groomed daily.
A year round recreation area, the Camden Snow Bowl offers hiking, mountain biking, tennis courts, ball fields pump track and a summer youth rec program. Fishing, boating and swimming are possible on the tranquil Hosmer pond. Many four legged friends and their owners are often found recreating together. In the autumn, there are fall foliage pancake breakfasts and chairlift rides and a mountain festival. Facility rentals are available all year for parties, weddings and reunions.

Ragged Mountain Recreation Area Redevelopment:
Since the fall of 2006 several town committees and groups of consultants have been working on a plan to redevelop the Ragged Mountain Recreation Area (home of the Camden Snow Bowl). This exciting project is designed to update the facilities of the recreation area for sustainable community use well into the middle of the 21st century.
