Frequently Asked Questions

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - Are minors (under 18) able to ski or snowboard with Maine Ski Shuttle?

    All ages are welcome on or Day Ski & Snowboard trips.  The only requirement is that if the participant is 13 or younger, his/her parent must be on the trip and he/she must carry the parental consent form at all times.  For ages 14-17, they may go alone, but must carry the parental consent form.

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - Can I drive myself and just get a lift ticket?

    No, sorry you can’t. The resorts do not permit MSS to give lift tickets to anyone who did not travel to the mountain on our bus.

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - Can I get rentals or lessons?

    Yes.  For rentals, you pre-pay on-line, so you’ll be all set when you get to the mountain. If you forget to pre-purchase, let the trip leader know that morning, and they will make sure you get a voucher to receive our group rate (varies by mountain). 

    For lessons, we recommend you contact the mountain directly to select the appropriate package.  If you choose a package that includes a lift ticket, simply register with Maine Ski Shuttle as a “bus-only.”

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - Can I leave stuff on the bus while skiing?

    You may leave items on the bus, but you will not have access to your belongings during the day as the bus will be locked and parked.  Many people purchase a locker at a lodge at the mountain. MSS is not responsible for loss or damage to any personal property.

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - Can I stay with friends for the weekend and drive back with them?

    Yes.  When you arrive at the bus, be sure to let the trip leader know that you won’t be on the return trip.

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - How far in advance do I need to register?

    Most people sign up 3 days to a week prior, but you can check the website or call us for last minute space.  You should only register once you are sure you can go, since all day trips are non-refundable and not transferrable to another date. We do offer walk on space for $100 cash at the bus, subject to availability.

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - Is alcohol or smoking allowed on the bus?

    Alcohol, drugs, and smoking (including vaping) are prohibited on the buses, and Maine Ski Shuttle reserves the right to exclude intoxicated or disorderly persons from any portion of a trip without refund of money. 

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - What if I have my own ski pass – can I just get a ride?

    Yes, we offer a “bus only” option for people who have a pass or aren’t planning to ski. It is $39 and includes a round-trip bus ride and assistance from our trip guides for anything else you may need!

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - What if the weather is bad, when will you cancel my trip?

    Maine Ski Shuttle trips are rarely cancelled. All arrangements have been made and paid for well in advance. If we have to cancel a trip, we will make every effort to give you as much notice as possible. Because conditions & weather can change quickly in New England, we make updates as necessary (24/7).  If conditions look to be problematic, we suggest you check before heading out.  Cancellations will be posted on the specific trip page as well as the Maine Ski Shuttle Facebook Page, @maineskishuttle.

  • Maine Ski Shuttle - What kind of transportation do you use?

    Maine Ski Shuttle uses top of the line 56 passenger motorcoach buses from Northeast Charter & Tour Co. Buses are equipped with Wi-Fi, a bathroom, outlets, reading lamps and plenty of storage for all of your ski & snowboard equipment.

“I had a great time on the trip.  I would also like to let you know that I was blown away with the level of service provided by Julie and Steve - they were excited, engaged and showed genuine interest in making sure we all had a great time!  They went above and beyond their responsibilities I'm sure and would definitely be reason enough for me to sign up for another BSSC trip.  Thanks again."
