Enjoy Freeport Skiing and Snowshoeing

December 18, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Freeport Skiing and SnowshoeingSummer’s long gone but that’s no reason to fret. Freeport skiing and snowshoeing opportunities are many so, when old man winter comes calling, the only thing to do is grab your coat, hat and mittens and join in!

Ah, winter. Summer gets more of the press and longing but who among us who have experienced a good day on skis, snowshoes, or a sled hasn’t enjoyed the activity as much, if not more, than a hot day under the sun? Plus, there’s the coming back in to warm yourself by the fire with a mug of hot cocoa to look forward to!

While Freeport’s location on the Maine coast puts us a bit out of the way for any of the nearest alpine ski centers, the L.L.Bean flagship store and campus call us home, so you know there are plenty of local areas and support for cross-country skiing, showshoeing, and sledding.

August 7, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

There’s nothing quite as spectacular as the spectrum of warm and bright, earthy hues that slowly takes over summer’s greens to dress the landscape in an eye-pleasing crazy-quilt of oranges and reds, yellows, tans, and browns. Nowhere in the US – perhaps the world! – is this transformation more evident and stunning than in New England. Of all the New England states, though we may be a bit biased, Maine fall foliage, with its 57 species of broadleaved trees, is the most resplendent, the most worthy of your attention.
