Winter

Northern Maine knows a thing or two about having fun in the winter.  The people of The County have perfected the art of winter fun, from skiing to snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, snowshoeing, dog sledding and all winter activities in between, Northern Maine is the winter sport enthusiast’s destination.

Did we mention the Biathlon? Presque Isle and Fort Kent were selected to host two of the 2011  E.ON Ruhrgas IBU World Cup events. Tens of thousands of world-class athletes, spectators and media will arrive in Northern Maine this February. Will you be one of them?
