About Us

Spruce Mountain Ski Slope – jointly owned by the towns of Livermore, Livermore Falls, and Jay – has been proudly offering winter outdoor recreation for all ages since 1956. It’s a place to gather and enjoy the winter recreation central Maine has to offer.

Our lifts are what makes us stand out. Here’s why:

  • Spruce Mountain only has rope tows, throwing you back to the classic skiing days.
  • We’re the largest and tallest rope tow-served mountain in New England.

Our History

In 1956, Livermore skiers got permission to develop a ski area on Spruce Mountain Road in North Jay, ME.

In 1959, they moved their operations to our current location in Jay, ME. It hasn’t been easy over the years; a lack of volunteer help threatened our ski area in the mid-1970s and we faced foreclosure in the mid-1990s.

In 1987, the towns of Jay, Livermore Falls, and Livermore bought the property from the Dion family, who owned and operated the property Spruce Mountain stands on. From there, new snowmaking systems were placed and improvements have been put in our lodge and trails.
