Favorite Places to Ski in Maine @ 93 Main Coffee Shop

Winter is my favorite time of year. I love the snow crystals as they sparkle in the sun, I love patterns and colors of the ice as the winter freeze takes hold of our lakes, waterways and forests and I love the silent beauty after a storm when the world is sleeping. You can learn to love winter. It’s about learning to embrace the beauty of the season. The hustle and bustle of summer has ended and the holiday extravagance season is over.

On Wednesday January 9th at 6:30pm I will be giving a presentation for the Sebasticook Regional Land Trust on my favorite places to ski and snowshoe in Maine. From walking out your backdoor to a more adventurous journey to Baxter State Park winter offers something for all fitness levels.

Learning to embrace the winter is key to living a fulfilling and healthful life in the North East.

$5.00 donation to Sebasticook Regional Land Trust suggested.

Northwoods Winter Weekend @ Moosehead Lake
Mar 8 @ 3:00 pm – Mar 10 @ 3:00 pm
Northwoods Winter Weekend @ Moosehead Lake

March is the perfect winter month! Daylight has started to return, the temperatures are reasonable and we have a lot of snow! Our winter weekend will take us to Rockwood Maine where we still stay in a rustic cabin on Moosehead Lake. We will be skiing on groomed trails and have the option (conditions permitting) to ski over to Kineo and ski around the base (or maybe hike to the top). Arrival time is 4:00pm on Friday…in time for dinner and perhaps a nighttime ski or snowshoe. All meals and accomodations are included. Designed for beginners and intermediate skiers.
