Discover the remote Maine woods on true ski adventure. We'll be based at West Branch Pond Camps within the AMC's 70,000 acre reserve east of Greenville, Maine. We will BC ski on unbroken trails, winding up the White Cap Mtn ridge and through hills and woods on a trails ranging from wide roads and open ponds to narrow trails and some bushwacking. The terrain will vary from well graded dirt roads to some steeper stuff. Some of the trails will be unbroken and we will cut the tracks, but some will be packed out and some trails near the camp may be tracked.

Come join our merry band of skiers and boarders as we tell tall tales of epic face plants, awesome views, and sweet powder from previous seasons and this one so far, and plan for more and better for the remainder of this season and seasons ahead.
