‘Tis the season for winter activities and Maine is the outdoor adventure hub for all things snow. We’re the hot spot for hiking and water sports in the warmer months and we have the terrain for skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, and more all winter long.

There are reasons our state is filled with outdoor enthusiasts all year round.

To make things easy, there’s a Maine farm that offers almost all options for winter activities. Pineland Farms in New Gloucester has beautiful trails perfect for all seasons but even more so in the winter.

At Pineland Farms, you can go skiing, snowshoeing, fat-tire biking, ice skating, and sledding all in one place.

To make it even more enticing, they now have heated snow globe rentals to warm up after a day filled with your favorite winter activities.
