Community Ski Free Days

For 2017-2018 we've spread free winter fun over three "community ski free" days throughout the winter. We hope that this means fewer lines and more fun for everyone.

  • Saturday, December 16: Free Skiing and Learn-to-Ski Clinic. Free day passes, free equipment demos, and free lessons available to all. If you've never skied, or are new to the sport, this is a great way to get started.
  • Saturday, January 27: Community Ski Free Day. Ski free with your own equipment; rental equipment available at reasonable rates. Free snowshoes to use.
  • Sunday, February 19: Winter Fun Day. Celebrate the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend with a full day of fun winter activities and free access to the ski trails. Ski free with your own equipment; rental equipment available.

Community Ski Free days are hosted by Waterville Parks & Recreation in collaboration with Friends of Quarry Road, Central Maine Ski Club, Central Maine NEMBA, and Kennebec Messalonskee Trails.

Many local businesses and organizations provide sponsorship support and dozens of volunteers for this community event.  Thanks especially to our 2017 season sponsors: Central Maine Motors, Inland Hospital, Kennebec Federal Savings, MaineGeneral Health, Wallace Events, Fortin's Home Furnishings, Marden's Surplus & Salvage, and Sappi North America.
