Another New England ski area has changed its name ahead of the 2022-23 skiing and riding season.
Boyne Resorts, which purchased Shawnee Peak last October, announced Wednesday that the Bridgton, Maine ski area would return to its original name; Pleasant Mountain.
The name change honors the 84-year history of Maine’s first ski area.
“It gives me great pleasure to return to our original name,” Pleasant Mountain general manager Ralph Lewis wrote in a letter to season passholders. “I know that this ski area is poised for a great future so others may experience what many of us already have.”
