Snowmaking and grooming
With our phenomenal trails, one-of-a-kind snowmaking system, and frequent trail grooming, Quarry Road Recreation Area is sure to be a world class cross country ski destination during the winter months.
Quarry Road Recreation Area’s extensive snowmaking network brings consistent snow conditions over the meadow trail and sprint loop for Nordic skiers of all levels. Snowmaking extends up the hill over much of the competition loop which makes for world class Nordic ski conditions close to downtown Waterville.
Our one-of-a-kind snowmaking system ensures that groomed trails will be available for Nordic skiers to enjoy at Quarry Road when no other area has snow for miles! Once snow is on the ground, the trails are groomed regularly, creating premier cross-country skiing conditions for both classic cross country and skate skiing.
During the winter season, the trails are groomed every weekday (and often on the weekends) for both skate and classic skiing in tracks.
The trails are groomed every weekday morning and for occasional special events on the weekends.
