Winter. A season that brings snow, darkness, and bitter cold. It may not sound like the most pleasant time of year. For some of us it’s just a time of year where we hope for days warmer than 10 degrees. For outdoor enthusiasts, it’s ski season.
It is no mystery that Maine is a skiing paradise; Sugarloaf, the second largest ski resort east of Mississippi, is just one of many ski resorts found in the state. Bates is home to both Division I Alpine and Nordic ski teams and has no shortage of students who have skied since they were two.
