New England Outdoor Center Ski Adventure

  • New England Outdoor Center Twin Pines Road Millinocket, ME, 04462 United States (map)

Tune up your cross country skiing skills in the shadow of Katahdin at a gorgeous destination, New England Outdoor Center (Twin Pines) in Millinocket! Enjoy a yoga practice and a classic ski clinic with a big finish of hot yummy soup and more...

Your adventure begins with a yoga flow on the indoor upper deck with Mount Katahdin as your drishti (your focal point). No experience necessary.

Then move onto a gear shakedown with Master Maine Guide and Ski Instructor Karen Francoeur, founder of Castine Kayak Adventures. Learn about how to chose the best gear from skis to backpacks, hydration strategies, and the most efficient clothing and safety kits for winter pursuits. Check out what really works and why! Bring your ski pack, your day pack, and learn how to pack properly.

Find your flow on any type of terrain - the ski clinic will help you gain confidence and technique for the Maine Hut Adventure (Feb 27-28) or your own skiing adventures. Fine tune your skiing with Karen Francoeur who will teach the art of balance, weight distribution, and body alignment to get your glide on.
