Winter Activities: 

Considering winter is the longest season in Maine, it isn't surprising that outdoor activities in Maine are abundant once the snow flies (usually in November ... but can come as early as October on rare occasions).

Please use this page to access all sorts of interesting winter activities in Maine. Perhaps a dog sled trip would be a nice change of pace. Maine has that and so much more.

Maybe you started telemarking, or skating or teleskating and yet you are still searching for your niche on skis. Steve Crone from the Telemark Inn near Bethel, Maine has a suggestion for you. You need to try skijoring!

For a joy beyond description you need to borrow a little steam from your faithful four-legged friend. Skijoring utilizes the high spirit of the canine cruisers to inject the thrill of speed and the harmony found in the human/dog partnership into the serenity and joy of the natural setting of Nordic trails.
