PORTLAND – The Ski Maine Association, representing 18 winter resorts in the state, has partnered to expand the contributions skiers and riders make to their favorite mountain community. The program is built on Sugarloaf/USA’s 17-year tradition of collecting canned food in exchange for discounted lift tickets.

The Ski Maine Tin Mountain Roundup continues through January with three more events on the schedule. This weekend, Jan. 24 and 25, skiers will be able to participate at the follow two areas:

Mt. Abram, Greenwood, will benefit the Norway Good Shepherd Food Bank. Skiers and riders will receive a $5 discount when they bring three canned items to the ski area.

Titcomb Mountain, West Farmington, will benefit local food pantries on Sunday, Jan. 25.

Previous Ski Maine Tin Mountain Roundups were held at Sugarloaf/USA, Sunday River, Saddleback, Shawnee Peak and New Hermon Mountain and 6,650 cans of food were collected for the local communities.
