We had intended to host the first of a mini-series of kids / family ski races this Sunday at Quarry Road but have cancelled because of extreme cold forecast.
Please consider joining us for the second (now only!) race in the series on Sunday, February 21 at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester. Ages are from the youngest kids to the oldest adults with age-appropriate race distances on the beautiful Pineland Farms trails.
Thanks for joining us (and thank you for our snowmaking loop!)
