Spruce Mountain Ski Slope in Jay is located right on the banks of the Androscoggin River, and is a community focal point for winter recreation. The affordable 11-trail ski area originally began in 1950 as a ski club for interested winter enthusiasts. It opened as a public mountain in 1960 and is still largely maintained by volunteers from the communities of Jay, Livermore, and Livermore Falls. It’s a blast from the past, as you rise 300 vertical feet to the summit of the mountain via three rope tow lifts. Back in the day, the volunteer ski club worked with the local paper company across the river, the Otis Falls Mill, to wire some of its hydroelectricity to the mountain to power the lights and rope tows. Later snow making was added to the list of modern changes. The mountain offers ski classes for all ages. Enjoy a night of skiing under the lights, or take a jaunt around the cross-country ski trails that traverse the mountainside to the north.
