There is no shortage of winter activities in Maine, and cross-country skiing is one that the whole family can enjoy. Gliding across fresh snow is peaceful, energizing, and easy on the planet. Plus, there are hundreds of trails to explore across the state. From groomed trails at one of the many ski centers to hidden trails at state parks and local land trusts, there is something for every skier.
Here are some of the great places to find groomed (and some ungroomed) trails.
