This is a fabulous place to ski. The weekend day pass is a little more pricey than the weekday pass (and the parking lots really can get quite full on weekends! Testament to how nice this place is). There are discounts for students and senior citizens. You can snowshoe and fat bike, too. All told, this 600-acre farm has about 24 miles to ski — the majority groomed for classic and skate skiing. Once you’re out on the trail, you do feel as if you’ve left the crowds behind. The lodge is small but warm, and there are self-serve snacks and rentals if you need them.

If you were to ski the outermost outer loop on the south side of Buzzell Road, it’s a little under 6 miles. The outermost outer loop on the north side of the road is roughly 3.5 miles. That’s just to give an approximate sense of the size of the area.

Directions: The address of the farm is 280 Buzzell Rd in Dayton. The easiest way to get there from Route 95 is to take Route 5 west from Saco.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
