About Us

Ski Maine Association is the non-profit trade association representing the Maine Alpine and Nordic Ski Industry. The Association represents 16 Alpine Ski Areas and 21 Nordic Ski Centers from South Berwick to Fort Kent. The mission of the Association is to promote the industry by focusing on Governmental Affairs, Education and Training and Public Affairs.

Working in conjunction with our government relations specialist, Ski Maine keeps track of legislative and policy issues that have potential impacts our membership. We work with other tourism partners to educate lawmakers and policy makers within Maine on issues critical to our industries success.

The Association produces the New England Summit, an annual tradeshow and educational conference for the New England ski industry. This event provides excellent training opportunities for ski industry staff in Maine.

Ski Maine maintains a strong working relationship with the Maine media. We work with the Maine Office of Tourism on winter messaging and work with our members to engage local media partners.

Ski Maine Association is also a member of the Maine Hospitality & Tourism Alliance.
