Chairlift Rides allow folks to enjoy fall foliage

CAMDEN, Maine. (WABI)- "It's wonderful to be able to see the snowball, the trees with all the leaves it's just a beautiful day to kind of have a fall adventure."

Leaf peeping season is well underway all over the state.

Because of that, folks skied the sea at the annual Fall Foliage Chairlift Rides at the Camden Snow Bowl.

Each year the Camden Snow Bowl opens the lifts to the public on every Sunday in October.

"It's great for the ski area because it is something different to offer to the non-Skier or snowboarder and it's community. We also have our ski club doing pancake breakfast. They do their breakfast 8:30 to 10:30 on Sunday mornings. So you get fed then you can come out and take a ride."

It takes about twenty minutes to get to the top of the mountain, and once you get to the top you can either ride back down or hike back down on the trails.

"I highly recommend this as an activity or family or anyone of any age is. It was wonderful to see on the chairlift all the different people."

Ward says folks come from all over to visit the Snow Bowl to enjoy leaf peeping season.

"A lot of those that don't typically ride the chairlift because they are not Skiers are coming out to enjoy it and see the view and see Penobscot Bay and enjoy all the foliage that we have."

"Usually when we are here the trees are bare so it was just a beautiful way to enjoy the fall."

The Fall Foliage Chairlift Rides are ten dollars for adults and five dollars for kids and go from 9 AM to 1 PM.

"There is nowhere else I'd rather be today."
