Scenic Drives
Winter in the Magical Mountains and Lakes Region is truly a treat, especially if you're a skier. We're blessed with some of the finest downhill and cross-country skiing in the nation just minutes away. Shawnee Peak, located between Bridgton and Fryeburg, offers 99% snowmaking on its 36 trails covering 225 acres, of which 70% is available for night skiing. You are guaranteed not only great skiing and snow no matter what Mother Nature has to offer, but wonderfully groomed conditions as well. The slopes are even groomed twice a day - once for morning skiing and again in the afternoon for night skiing.
Downhill
Within minutes of most locations in the Magical Mountains and Lakes Region, there are six other downhill ski areas and four tracked and groomed cross-country centers. Of course, there are miles of snowmobile/cross-country ski trails from virtually every inn and B&B's door. Shawnee Peak

Snowshoeing
{short description of image} One of the fastest growing winter sports is snowshoeing. Our Magical Mountains and Lakes Region is the ideal place to try out this fun and easy sport. Essentially, if you can walk, you can snowshoe! Opportunities for venturing out lie at everyone's doorstep. Whether you choose to follow a marked or hiking trail or explore our varied terrain on your own, there is something for every ability. Snowshoes can be rented at Shawnee Peak or the Admiral Peary House B&B. Both have marked trails and offer instruction.

Dog Sledding
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to run a dog team? Come to the Magical Mountains and Lakes Region and discover the thrill and excitement of a well-trained team of enthusiastic huskies mushing through the forest and across one of our beautiful lakes. Go for a half day, full day, or an overnight. The adventure is yours to seek. Winter Journeys
