We are pretty pumped about the new snow that fell yesterday, can anyone say 12”-15”?!! The flakes yesterday morning were bigger than silver dollars and almost just as heavy—so we have an amazing surface that will glue down and groom up incredibly well!
Don’t let the weatherman scare you out of an awesome weekend where the entire mountain will be open. What do we do here in Maine when the thermometer dips into the single numbers?? We add a layer or two and get out and rip it up!! Its going to be single digits in the morning this weekend, warming up throughout the day with lots of sun. Let’s do this!!
This week’s management profile features Amy Boulanger, Ski Patrol Director.
Amy hails from Minnesota, and moved to Maine at the age of 9. Her family moved around quite a bit, and she graduated high school from Deering. Amy graduated from UMF in 2004 and patrolled at Sugarloaf while in school from 2000-2002.
Amy started here at Abram as Patrol Director in 2004. She had her first child Jaden in 2006 and left Abram to raise her and soon to follow, second daughter Lily. Amy returned to Abram in 2010 again as Patrol Director. Since that time Amy has worked hard to develop the patrol and has tripled the number of patrollers we have. She and her husband Steve were blessed with a third daughter Alice in 2015, and all three girls learned to ski and race at Abram. Steve has been at Sunday River since 1996 and is now the Mountain Operations Manager. They have lived in Rumford Center since 2004. Amy has earned Senior status as a patroller with the National Ski Patrol system, and is a certified instructor for our patrol. We can all feel very good that we have someone as qualified and passionate as Amy in a very important role here at Mt. Abram!!
Don't forget to stop by Loose Boots this Saturday for live music with Paul Mellyn, back by popular demand! Fun for the whole family continues on Sunday with the Vertical Challenge, I plan on racing so come on out if you are up for the challenge.
See you this weekend!
