Maine Cancelled Ski Areas
Passadumkeag Mountain
Grand Falls, Maine
Proposed in the 1990s
Passadumkeag Mountain location map Overview
After a proposal to build a ski area on Lead Mountain was rejected, developers set their eyes on nearby Passadumkeag Mountain.

A bit scaled back in comparison to the previous proposal, Ski Passadumkeag Mountain Association President Robin Brooks planned an 800 vertical foot, $2.5 to $5 million ski area.

While some sort of land purchase agreement was signed in late March of 1996, it is thought the proposal fell apart sometime in 1997.
