Caribou High School Ski Center

The well-maintained trails have multiple and single uses, depending on the season. Single trail uses are skiing and snowshoeing during the winter months, and hiking, running, and biking in the summer months.

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.

Other Information

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.
