SkiNewEngland.net Profile
Located just off US 201 north of Bingham and Moscow, Maine, Baker Mountain is one of the oldest ski areas in New England.

Rope Tow Years

The roots of Baker Mountain date back to 1937 or 1938, when Allen Quimby Jr. and Langdon Quimby logged the slopes of Baker Mountain. Dates vary, but a rope tow was likely installed circa 1938. While the area was closed during World War II, a second rope tow may have been added either immediately before or shortly following the war.

The non-profit Baker Mountain Ski Tow Club was formed in early 1959, taking over operations of the small ski area.

T-Bar Years


The ski area took a major step forward in 1968-69 when a new 2,170 foot long Poma T-Bar was installed, serving 430 vertical feet.

The Baker Mountain Ski Tow Club continues to operate Baker Mountain ski area to this day, thanks in large part due to volunteers, grants, and donations.
