Located near Rumford in the Longfellow Mountains of western Maine, Black Mountain has been providing affordable family skiing, snowboarding, Nordic skiing, and tubing for more than 40 years. It is now part of the Maine Winter Sports Center (MWSC) family, which includes Bigrock in Aroostook County and a number of cross-country facilities. MWSC plans a 40% increase in vertical serviced by a double chair in the near future, along with additional snowmaking and lighting.

Geared toward learning and fun, Black provides lessons and clinics and a citizen racing program all season long. Special events enliven the long winter, there's a lift-served tubing park, and 25 kilometers of cross-country trails.
