WSKI’s sponsors keep us on the air and we couldn’t stay #1 for all these years without their support, so when out & about, please support them, too!! From eats to treats, summer beverages to winter’s joy. With a variety of things to do and places to visit further afield in the Maine High Peaks, en route, or travelling elsewhere in the Pine Tree State, explore these options.
One of the overlooked attractions of the Maine High Peaks Region is the magic of water & our mountainous terrain, that makes for some superb hikes to casual picnic sites, or cooling off places on hot days. During the spring melt, or at other times when there’s been rain in the mountains, they all transform from docile steams into spectacular torrents, so check out these spots to see some of our favorites!

The Pines Market on Rt. 27 in Eustis next to the Cathedral Pines Campground, right on the shores of Flagstaff Lake with Bigelow in their view, sponsors WSKI’s Off-Mtn-Region-wide Trail Reports all year round: snowmobile conditions in the winter, & ATV & mountain biking during the warmer seasons! That’s a lot to cover, with enough trails for all ages & abilities throughout our wilderness playground, especially in Carrabassett for mountain biking, for the pedal powered two wheelers, AND hundreds of miles of well maintained ATV trails from one end of the High Peaks Region to the other, & east & west, too, thanks to generous landowners! Respect others’ lands, other riders, & the sensitivity of our natural resources… & get out & PLAY!!!
Labor Day this weekend; the end of summer is nigh! Fall is a wicked nice time of the year in the mountains. The SuperQuad operates on weekends (weather permitting) as the gondi used to run daily during the foliage season; pic of Rosemary Drosky at mid-station on the way down in 1987. Vids from the summit (Rebecca Carey!) & of newly re-created East side of the Mtn.
