About Big Rock
Established in the 1960, Big Rock Ski Area was purchased in 2000 by the Maine Winter Sports Center (MWSC) through grants available from the Portland, Maine-based Libra Foundation. Big Rock and the Maine Winter Sports Center want to make skiing an activity for the whole family to enjoy by offering improved facilities and state of the art equipment at family-friendly prices. Extensive brush clearing, trail reconditioning, improved snowmaking capabilities, reconditioned lifts, and new grooming equipment have made the slopes more enjoyable for all skill levels. To add variety to everyone's winter sports experience, we've added Cross-country and snowshoe trails. Big Rock's lodge has been expanded to include a new rental shop, ticket counter, and café with food hot off the grill along with homemade soups and snacks. All of these changes have helped Big Rock become a family-oriented facility that has a small town feel with big time fun! Big Rock and the Maine Winter Sports Center are committed to keeping winter sports within the reach of Aroostook County communities and their families. We also hope to give people from outside "The County" a taste of what winter recreation in northern Maine is all about!
