Uphill Access

Pleasant Mountain welcomes and supports our guests seeking to enjoy the mountain utilizing uphill travel with an Alpine Touring setup (No snowshoeing, cross country equipment or hiking is permitted). For the safety of everyone on the mountain, we ask that our guests follow the guidelines. All travel is done at the individual’s risk.

All uphill participants have acknowledged that they know and will adhere to the Maine Skier Statute and the Maine Recreational Use Statute.

There is ONLY ONE designated route for uphill travel (Kancamagus – Jack Spratt).
