I've got a few of those $15 night skiing coupons Shawnee used to distribute around North Conway. No expiration date on them. Wonder if they're still useable????

Longtime skier in the area. I used to buy passes at Shawnee...until they were more expensive than Sunday River Passes. That was years ago but I could never understand the pricing strategy.

Was there an official name change announcement by Boyne?

Noticed this morning their Facebook page now lists the business as Pleasant Mountain Maine

I rode by there Tuesday night and noticed all the Shawnee Peak signs were gone. I kind of figured that was what they were doing.

I had/had a pin advertising the alpine slides at Pleasant Mountain. Probably from the early 80s. If I still have it I'll post a pic.

Looks like a cool little place.

I get Shawnee is no longer polite and going back to a previous name makes sense.

It's a very cool mid sized mountain. Skis much bigger than it's stats as their vertical is really consistent with minimal run out. Good snowmaking and lots of nice character trails too. Just doesn't get a ton of snow due to location and elevation.

I think Boyne will do a great job there. Selfishly I wish they stayed independent and found their way onto the Indy Pass. Used to be able to find day ticket deals there occasionally, but probably not anymore.
