The Bangor Municipal Golf Course is a unit of the Bangor Parks and Recreation Department. Beginning in the winter of 2012-13, the Penobscot Valley Ski Club teamed up with course staff to offer groomed trails right in downtown Bangor. These trails feature rolling terrain that is great for beginner and experienced skiers alike. There are also some lights that allow folks to get out and ski on a short loop once the sun has set on Maine’s Queen City.
The course is groomed for both skate and classic skiing, and allows for skis of different lengths via cross trails. You may find a slightly different trail configuration than the one mapped, based on current grooming. Much of the trail is in open areas, which can be very sunny or very windy, so dress appropriately. Parts of the trail do pass near the interstate highway and the airport, so it can be somewhat noisy.
Walkers - please refrain from walking directly on the groomed ski trail.
Penobscot Valley Ski Club grooms several trail systems that are free and open to the public. All PVSC grooming and trail maintenance is done by volunteers. Please consider a membership or donation to support our efforts. The club uses www.skitrailreport.com to report conditions and provide grooming updates. You can add your own posts as well – the more updates, the better!
