Local residents and visitors are invited to enjoy a day of free cross-country skiing and other winter activities at Quarry Road Trails in Waterville on Saturday, February 16. There will be fat tire biking demos available from Mathieu’s Cycle & Fitness. Discover snow sculpting with help from Waterville Creates! This free community event, hosted by the City of Waterville with support from Friends of Quarry Road, is the third and final Community Ski Free Day scheduled for the 2018-2019 winter season.
The Welcome Center will be open from 10am until 4pm to provide free snowshoes to loan, ski equipment rentals, snacks, and information. Ski and snowshoe trails are open all day throughout the season with lighting on over a mile of trail for night skiing until 9pm. Quarry Road Trails’ state-of-the-art snowmaking system ensures that the ski trails are covered even in periods of low natural snowfall.
These free community events and the Quarry Road Trails are supported through ski pass sales, donations, collaboration with partnering organizations, and contributions from annual sponsors.
Quarry Road Trails is located at 300 Quarry Road in Waterville. For further information about the area, volunteer opportunities, programs, and events, call Waterville Parks and Recreation at (207) 680-4744 or visit quarryroad.org.
