Winter at Quarry Road means more than just skiing. We've developed many more opportunities for outdoor winter fun:
Fat bikes are welcome on the groomed ski trails but need to avoid trails when snow conditions become soft. Bikers using the groomed ski trails must purchase a day ticket or season pass.
Biking is permitted on ski trails only in hard packed snow conditions. Please use your judgment to keep trails in good condition and safe for all.
Snowshoeing is an ideal way for people of all ages and fitness levels to enjoy winter’s beauty, get some fresh air and stay active. Quarry Road's beautifully wooded trails meander along Messalonskee Stream, up and down rolling hills and around open meadows just minutes from the center of Waterville.
Quarry Road is a perfect destination for families, schools, clubs and other groups who want to enjoy snowshoeing as a fun winter activity for people of all ages and fitness levels.
Check our trail map for trails designed specifically for snowshoeing.
A limited number of loaner snowshoes are available at the Welcome Center Yurt, where they may be borrowed free of charge.
Sledding adds an exciting activity requiring minimal equipment and skill for kids of all ages to enjoy at Quarry Road. What could be better than a big sledding hill just minutes from downtown Waterville to keep kids active and happy this winter?
Quarry Road visitors can enjoy some good old fashion fun sledding down the old Colby ski hill! The uphill climb is quickly rewarded with the downhill thrill.
Dogs are allowed on Quarry Road itself, and on designated dog walking trails, but not on the groomed ski trails. (Waterville’s Animal Control Ordinance states that dogs must be on a leash or under control by personal presence and attention at all times.)
