SkiNewEngland.net Profile
Located northeast of Bangor in Lee, Maine, Mt. Jefferson has been serving local skiers for nearly half a century.

Mt. Jefferson Ski & Recreation Association

Mt. Jefferson's lift served skiing history likely dates back to May of 1964, when Mt. Jefferson Ski & Recreation Association was registered as a Maine corporation. Six local couples contributed $5,000 each toward developing the ski area.

Mt. Jefferson likely opened in early 1965 with at least a rope tow. A 2,000 foot T-Bar was installed either for the 1964-65 or 1965-66 season.

The ski area was likely transferred to Mt. Jefferson Ski Area, LLC following the 1977-78 season, with Byron and Susan Delano becoming the sole owners.

A second T-Bar was possibly added in the mid to late 1990s, followed by a handle tow in 2007.

The Delano family sold the ski area to Ken Zimmerman in early 2016.

While snowmaking as occasionally been mentioned as a future possibility, the ski area still relies upon natural snow.
