Temperatures in Maine continue to plummet, but skiers are unfazed
Both Nordic and Alpine ski areas, even in southern Maine, were reporting packed powder Wednesday, and to deal with the cold, 'you just dress in layers ...,' one skier said. 'This is Maine.'

...In much of southern Maine on Wednesday, temperatures hovered near 10 degrees – they were near zero in the western mountains. In the six days ahead it will get even colder. In Portland, daytime temperatures will range from 5 to 11 degrees. In the mountains, the forecast calls for highs between zero and 6 degrees.

Sunday River in Newry boasted that 22 inches of snow had fallen since Friday, and Sugarloaf’s website reported two feet had fallen in the past two weeks. At Lost Valley in Auburn, snowmaking continues around the clock as the ski area builds a new tubing park, which requires a lot of snow to shape the banked turns.

“There is epic skiing. There is fresh packed powder everywhere,” said John Herrick, Lost Valley’s general manager. “Yesterday was the first time in a long history that the entire mountain was open – 21 trails and three lifts. You can’t ask for anything better.”
