How do you survive winter in Maine? Do you embrace it? Or escape it?

  • You're an Escaper: You hate winter. You want to leave during the coldest months of Maine to go somewhere warm (or pampered where you can let your mind wander to warmer destinations).
  • You're an Embracer: You love winter. You want to spend every moment outside. When there's a blizzard, there you are, thriving in it.
  • We’ve teamed up with Maine Spirits on a giveaway designed to celebrate your survival instincts.

    One “embracer” will be drawn to win a $500 gift card to Arlberg Ski Shop, plus a pair of ski passes to each of the following mountains: Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Shawnee Peak, and Mt. Abram.

    One “escaper” will be drawn to win a two-night stay at the AC Hotel Portland Downtown Waterfront with breakfast for two at the AC Kitchen, a $50 gift card to the AC Lounge and a $100 gift card to Nine Stones Spa.
