Caribou High School Ski Center
Caribou High School trailhead is behind the high school which is located at the intersection of ME Routes 161 and 228 in Caribou (308 Sweden Street). At the trailhead a map of the trails is posted along with a sign-in log.
In the summer months, Caribou High School Ski Center offers individuals biking and hiking trails that loop through the forests, fields and back to the trailhead. During the winter months, these trails double as cross-country ski trails. Snowshoe trails follow a spring that twist and turn through the forest. A short alpine ski trail with ski lift is also available at the center. Northern Skiers Club in Caribou hosts the annual Aroostook Youth Ski Festival held in March every year.
During the winter, this network has 3 km of lighted ski trails and a wonderful new lodge that is open to all though it is primarily used by the High School Alpine Team. The lights come on automatically at 3:30 pm and are set to shut off at 7:30 pm.
Every Friday night under the lights, the Northern Skiers Club hosts a program called Friday FUNdamentals. At this event anyone can come and learn to Nordic ski or ski better for free. Use the contact information to find out more.
