Camden Snow Bowl is the only place in the States where you can make turns within view of the Atlantic Ocean. Head for the sole chairlift and ski Mussel Ridge, a double-fall-line trail underneath the lift. Come spring, pack camping gear and spend the night in the lean-to at the top of the chairlift. In the morning, ski down as the sun rises over the Atlantic. A full weekday ticket is $23 ($35 on weekends), or you can ski in two-hour blocks for $13.
