Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

Carter's XC Ski Centers & Ski Shop

With two locations, Carter's offers great cross-country skiing for skiers of all levels. In Bethel, the trail system stretches from the banks of the Androscoggin River up Farwell Mountain with views of the Presidentials. We offer 55km of skate trails and tracked terrain, using high-quality nordic grooming equipment. Tucked in the valley of Grafton Notch, our snowfall is always plentiful and groomed for powder. 

Bethel Village Trails at The Bethel Inn

Discover the most complete cross country and nordic snowsports experience in Maine at the Bethel Village Trails. Experience a classic New England cross-country ski area and be ready for the winter adventure of a lifetime. All of our trails have rolling terrain and many skirt stone walls, dams, and chimneys left as a reminder of the region's agrarian past. The field trails use some spectacular terrain and offer vistas of the Mahoosuc Mountain Range and the Androscoggin River Valley.
