Upcoming Events:

Moosewoods: The Annual "Other Way Sunday" will be held again this year at Moosewoods on Sunday March 8th. This is a chance to experience a whole new trail system by skiing in the opposite direction! Signs will be altered to direct skiers.

Drinking water and hot chocolate will be provided at the hut. Pot luck snacks would be fun to share, or, if you would like to make a day of it, bring your lunch to enjoy in the hut.

Directional signs will be in place by 10:00 am (remember the switch to daylight saving!) and removed by 5:00. The skiing is excellent, don’t miss this event.

And just to make "Other Way Sunday" at Moosewoods all the more wacky, we’ve decided to add a Treasure Hunt to the trail. Young & old are invited to find the clues along the trail & win a prize back at the warm-up hut when finished.

Come on out at any time during the day and join in the fun.
(This event brought to you by Lena, Charlotte and Monique!)

Pinestone: Just a reminder that the golf course trails at Pinestone will be closed Thurs March 5th through Sunday March 8th for the annual Winterdance dog sled derby.

The Willow Beach & Ironwood trails will be open & groomed during the derby. Access from Wigamog road.
