Camden named among the top eight New England ski towns

CAMDEN — Camden and the Snow Bowl have been recognized as one of the best New England ski towns by abouttravel.com.

"Coastal Camden may be known more for its lobster dinners than its skiing, but it's also home to the iconic Camden Snow Bowl, an old-fashioned New England ski area uniquely situated within sight of Penobscot Bay that’s currently undergoing a major renaissance.

"The 80-year-old Snow Bowl, famous for its annual toboggan races, is getting a $4.5-million facelift that will include a new lodge, trails (now up to 20), glade skiing, lifts (incuding a new triple chair to the summit), and snowmaking.

"All of which is helping to put Camden on the map as a regional destination for snowsports as well as a great town for shopping and dining," the listing reads.
