Big Rock Ski Area

Established in the 1960, Big Rock Ski Area was purchased in 2000 by the Maine Winter Sports Center (MWSC). In 2002 the resort doubled its snowmaking capacity and created twice as many lighted trails for night skiing. Skiers and snowboarders had new trails to enjoy, including some gladed slopes, and improvements to the base lodge for increased comfort and convenience.

From winter 2004-5 Big Rock received all its power direct from a wind farm nearby according to an agreement drawn up with the wind farm operators, Evergreen Wind Power. The electricity is used to run lifts, snow making and all other power needs.
