Trail passes, rentals, snacks, and information are available daily at the Quarry Road Welcome Center (weekend hours 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; weekdays noon to 4 p.m.). More than a mile of trail is lit for night skiing until 9 p.m. daily. If you're skiing off-hours, it's on the honor system; you can deposit payment in the green canister at the kiosk trailhead.
Snowmaking and grooming
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 daily for both skate and classic skiing.
