Sunday River from a non-skier

Sunday River Ski Trip from a non-skier I have found going on one or two of these ski trips a year is very enjoyable; I get to meet and socialize with a different group of Gang members than those I run into during the summer activities. Because I don’t ski downhill doesn’t mean that there aren’t things to do.

On this trip I packed my snowshoes, a pair of micro spikes and hiking boots. Bethel has a wonderful pathway that runs along the Androscoggin River in the valley; and I just needed my hiking boots to follow it for about 3 miles on two different days. The skiers were being troubled by some wind, but in the valley there was none. I went further afield to Greenwood (8 miles) on a different day and hiked without spikes (although I probably should have had them on) on the trails in "Maggie’s Nature Park” which I found online by looking for hiking trails in the area. Maggie’s was just a wonderful walk in the woods, a little steep in some areas but trails were marked extremely well so were easy to follow even with a snow covering of 2”.

There were some cross-country skiers in the group and they found both Carter’s Ski area and the trails at the Bethel Inn, which by the way has some great snowshoe trails also. Needless to say I ended each day in the pool and hot tub. It was a great trip and with a little investigation there is always somewhere to hike or snowshoe; it's just great to get out and move.
