Snowshoeing is a fun and healthy sport that allows you to easily enjoy the outdoors and further explore the untouched wilderness in the winter. Our experienced instructors will demonstrate and teach you all the snowshoeing basics you need to enjoy this relaxing winter activity.

Then, they’ll lead you on a guided trek, sharing their knowledge of the plants and wildlife that thrive in this wintry environment. Be sure to reserve a spot on this exceptional adventure. All necessary snowshoeing equipment is provided.

Cross-country skiing is a fun, healthy and exhilarating sport that offers an easy way to enjoy winter’s snowy countryside. Held on the beautiful groomed trails of Pineland Farm in New Gloucester, Maine, our expert guides will guide you step-by-step through the basic techniques for enjoying this relaxing aerobic activity.

They’ll teach you how to stride, pole and turn, plus give you friendly advice and tips on navigating different types of terrain. You’ll then practice what you’ve learned with a guided ski excursion. You’ll leave this course with the skills necessary to confidently cross-country on your own, allowing you unparalleled access to the wilderness in winter.
