Cross-country skiing is a great way to explore the outdoors in winter. KELT invites the public to join local knowledgeable Nordic skiers at Merrymeeting Preserve in Woolwich. Skiing starts at 1:00 pm and includes instruction, hot cocoa, and adventure!

Chuck Mainville, who runs a Nordic ski program for area families, will be on hand to lead cross country skiers throughout the 125 acre preserve. Gentle slopes and a variety of trail lengths make the preserve a perfect spot to learn and to improve cross country ski skills. Families, children, and novice to experienced skiers are welcome.

 

There is a limited supply of Nordic equipment to loan for children and adults- not all fits are available. Please include at registration if ski equipment is needed.

Special thanks to the cosponsors: Phippsburg Sportsmen’s Association and MYSO-Maine Youth Sports Opportunities.

The ski and hiking trails at Merrymeeting Fields Preserve are open for public use from dawn until dusk. Please refrain from walking on the ski tracks.

To reach the preserve take 127 at the Cumberland Farms on U.S. 1 in Woolwich, follow it to 128 and then take 128 4.9 miles to Chops Point Road on the left.  The preserve is on the right about a mile down Chops Point Road.
