Mt Jefferson is a small community hill located in the village of Lee, Maine. It is a classic throwback mountain with just a small lodge, a t-bar, and no snowmaking. For a small mountain, there is quite a bit of variety with about a dozen trails. Tickets are very cheap and affordable. Also has a very good view of Mt. Kahtadin on the Juniper Trail. All in all, I had a very good experience and will be back again at some point. If you are in the Bangor area and had the choice between here and Hermon, drive the extra time north to here. Just make sure you call ahead or check the snow report on this site since they rely solely on mother nature.
