Winter W inter is just as much fun as summer in The Maine Highlands, whether you love racing across the snow and ice or the quiet solitude of a white-blanketed forest. Snowmobiling, ice fishing, Nordic and alpine skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowshoeing, and dog sledding are great reasons to get outdoors during the colder months. Miles of smooth backcountry trails crisscross the region, and family-friendly ski mountains provide rentals, lessons, and affordable lift passes. Many of the region’s towns and villages celebrate the cold weather with holiday parades, ice fishing derbies, snowmobile races, festivals, and carnivals throughout the winter. 26 | THE MAINE HIGHLANDS.COM
