Friends of the Mountain Uphill Policy & Code of Conduct

Uphill access by means of skinning or snowshoeing is welcomed by Friends of the Mountain (“FOTM”). FOTM supports individuals who choose manpowered fun and winter exploration. 

Permitted Access: Access is permitted at your own risk. If outside of hours when the Triple Lift operational, on-mountain rescue services are not available. On-mountain rescue services are not guaranteed above the Triple Lift at any time. Please descend on open terrain only.

You are required to have an uphill access pass or Triple Lift pass and sign our uphill policy waiver. If you have a Backcountry Season Pass or Uphill New England Pass, be sure to have that on you for your uphill travel. Day passes are available online and at the Ticket Office during normal operational hours for a nominal fee. Uphill access passes do not provide for use of the Triple Lift. All uphill travel and skiing above the Triple Lift is done at the individual’s own risk. Please refer to the uphill travel board for daily updates pertaining to route changes or closures. 

  1. Uphill Travel is restricted to any designated uphill track.

  2. Entering closed terrain is prohibited and will result in Ski Patrol revoking your ticket/access. Ski Patrol reserves the right to limit access to the mountain at any time.

  3. You are considered a skier under the Maine Skier Statue, and you must abide by “Your Responsibility Code.”

  4. Ski Patrol reserves the right to close the mountain to these activities at any time due to weather, snow conditions, or other factors.

  5. Nordic equipment is not permitted on ski trails and uphill routes unless otherwise marked as a Nordic ski trial. 

  6. Snowshoeing is permitted but snowshoers must descend via the uphill trail and are not permitted to descend via any ski trails. Snowshoers agree to move aside if needed as uphill travelers have the right of way. 

  7. Uphill travelers MUST stay clear and yield to all on-mountain operations and ongoing work, including but not limited to grooming machines, snowmaking equipment, and snowmobiles. 

  8. Uphill travel equipment is required to have metal edges, a retaining device or brakes and an industry-approved binding. This includes AT skis, tele skis, split boards, and snowshoes. 

  9. You must ensure that you are always visible to downhill traffic when on groomed terrain. When traveling uphill, please climb in single file.

  10. Ski Patrol clears the lower mountain of all guests and employees at the end of operating hours every operating day. If you are on the mountain at this time, you will be required to return to the base. All skiing above the Triple Lift is done at the individual’s own risk and does not have the benefit of Ski Patrol clearance.  

  11. Sledding is not permitted on the mountain at any time. 


Please save the mountain contact number on your mobile phone: (207) 695-2400. Ski Patrol and emergency services are not available during non-operating hours. Be aware that on-mountain cell phone service is not always reliable.
