Course Description

Gliding on skis across the woodland trails of Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine, you will learn everything you need to know about this popular winter sport, a favorite for fitness, adventure and fun. During our 2.5 hours together, we will discuss the gear you need to get started, how to layer for comfort and warmth, and practice techniques to help you hit the trail with confidence. Even if you have been on skis for years, our experienced guides and small-group settings will always give you the opportunity to learn something new.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

Please note this tour is weather dependent.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any item due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

**Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it is deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
