Local residents and visitors are invited to enjoy a day of cross-country skiing and other winter activities at Quarry Road Trails in Waterville on Saturday, January 27. This free community event, hosted by the City of Waterville, is the second of three Community Ski Free Days scheduled for the 2017-2018 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. This year’s gold level sponsors are Central Maine Motors, Colby College, Consigli, Grondin Construction, Inland Hospital, MaineGeneral Health, Maine State Credit Union, and Morin Orthodontics with bronze level support provided by Marden’s and Sappi.
