Glide through the remote Maine woods on groomed tracks in the historic Flagstaff Lake region & enjoy lodge camaraderie at night at Maine Huts and Trails Lodges on our ski adventure. Gear sags will enable us to use our "skinny" skis and a small day pack to range far and wide with low effort for most of the tour. Our base tour will be 10-13 miles on meticulously groomed tracks in the forest with optional "bonus" km with leaders every afternoon after our base tour is finished. As an added option, bring your more robust skis for some real bonus touring through the forest! The cost includes your accommodation, meals Saturday dinner through Sunday lunch, a happy hour and great guiding and ski waxing tips. We may have to ski up to 2 miles with our full packs before the sag, but after that all will be sagged. This is a Boston/Connecticut interchapter trip and all are invited to join! Accommodations may be multi-gender bunk rooms and shared rooms with twin beds. Carpooling will be facilitated. Optional nights before and/or after are available at your own arrangement, the leaders will be skiing after and welcome any participants on your own arrangement.

Fee of $225 AMC member/$250 non-member includes: Two nights lodging, Sat dinner, Sun. bfast & lunch, 1-bag gear sag 2 days, and expert ski guiding & waxing tips.

This is an AMC Boston Ski Committee & AMC Connecticut Chapter Joint sponsored trip. You will be asked to sign a liability waiver and must signup with the leader to be on the trip.

    HI all,

    I've put together a quick slideshow/video with music for our trip. Not sure how all this works for you all so I made one SC and one HD version and posted them to both my google drive and drop box.

    Mike I've signed up for this meet up do I need to do anything with AMC ? I used to be a member but it might have just lapsed. Do I need to do anything ? Send money etc ? Also where is the hotel fri night do I need to do anything or is that taken care of as well ?

    Howard, Mike and Sheila, please feel free to give me a call at 617.257.2251. We are still working on the brochure, but I have our trip set with Maine Huts & Trails and the Friday motel committed. The cost looks like it will be much closer to $200 assuming we have at least 12 people and thus grow pricing.

    Can I rent skis

    January 2, 2014

    • Mike B.

      Hi Maia, MHT doesn't rent skis that I know of but I think you could make arrangements with the Sugarloaf XC ski center that is nearby. Mike

    Hi,
    I've just joined this meetup group and am interested in the trip. Are the 2 nights accommodations in the Maine Huts, or is Friday night in a motel and Saturday night in one of the Huts? Is there skiing Friday night, or does that begin on Saturday?
    Thanks,
    Ailis

    • Mike B.

      Hi Allis, we are in a motel in Farmington on Friday night and tbe skiing starts on Saturday. You could ways come up early and ski the sugarloaf touring center on Friday. If you email me at [masked] I can send you a trip brochure.

    I would be very interested in doing this trip. I had done XCountry skiing many many years ago and would like to chat with someone before signing up. Tx
