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.
The weather will be gorgeous, so come out to help or just to see the action, & to all participants: welcome to our backyard, we love sharing it with you, Good Luck!
The Town of Carrabassett Valley invites you to participate in the annual Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge, a mountain bike endurance event. The event will offer two course options—one approximately 25 miles, the other an endurance 60 mile ride. The courses will cover a great mix of backcountry mountain bike terrain winding through the beautiful, unspoiled forests and mountains of Carrabassett Valley and its surrounding communities, consisting of technical single track, double track and dirt roads, with steep climbs and exciting down hills. Your participation will support Carrabassett Region NEMBA trail maintenance and development, and the town of Carrabassett Valley mountain bike race fund for future events.
Mountain biking is one of the most exciting developments in the Maine High Peaks Region and it’s TAKING OFF! Based at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center, the area’s trail network extends for miles in all directions and offers riding for all abilities. All trails are designed and constructed with great care and Carrabassett Valley is poised to become New England’s premier mountain bike destination. Bob Ash talks about bikes and the importance of having a local bike shop to service the needs of visitors.
This year’s events last all afternoon, capped off w/ the fireworks at dusk Monday night! This footage from the ’80s shows the same spirit of community has been an integral part of life in CV for a long time… recognize anyone???
