How to get here
Winter in the Moosehead Lake Region of Maine
Winter Climate... Average snowfall is around 112". Usually we experience a week or two of below zero temperatures in January; the cold here is dryer and seems to be less chilling than in other regions. With the proper clothing you can enjoy a multitude of outdoor activities.
Alpine Skiing... Located on Rt. 15 just a few minutes North of Greenville, Squaw Mountain has one of the most spectacular views of any mountain in the East. With a 2000' triple chair, a 6000' double chair and a 1750' vertical drop, Squaw Mountain is suitable for both first timers and competitive experts.
Cross Country Skiing... The Moosehead Region has a number of cross country facilities which offer groomed and tracked ski trails, rentals and instruction. You will also have hundreds of miles of off-track touring on the many woods and logging trails that criss-cross our region. All you have to do is put on your skis and go. You can also arrange to be flown in to very remote areas for a day or two of skiing and then be picked up at a predetermined spot.
Telemarking & Mountaineering... Flying to one of the many mountains in the region and skiing untracked mountainsides is an unlimited option.
Sled Dog trips... Sled Dogging trips are quite popular and offer visitors the opportunity to really enjoy the backwoods experience.
Snow Shoeing... to this day remains a popular winter pastime. You can strap on a pair of snowshoes and head out most anywhere. In no time at all you'll be enjoying this sport all on your own.
Ski Planes... In the winter the local bush pilots swap their floats for skis and continue to operate just as they always do, flying sportsmen in to the back country of Maine.
