Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding
The Camden Snow Bowl is home to more than 20 well-maintained ski trails across 48 acres of land that are open for both day and night skiing. “Don’t worry if you don’t own ski equipment because the Snow Bowl has all you need for rent. Be sure to reserve your gear (skis, snowboard, boots, poles, and helmet) at least one day in advance.
If you’re new to the sport, you can attend the resort’s ski school. Both private and group lessons are offered daily and are taught by experienced ski instructors in a safe setting. And for you more experienced skiers, private lessons are a great way to hone your skills.

In addition to Alpine skiing and snowboarding, the Camden Snow Bowl also has several trails suitable for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking. You will want to explore the new Ragged Mountain Preserve Trail.
