NORDIC SKIING, FAT BIKING, SNOWSHOEING (during the ski season)
The Snow Bowl is working with Coastal Mountains Land Trust and Mid-Coast NEMBA to provide a variety of winter experiences.
The Kuller Multi-use Loop Trail is 3 Km (2 miles) long. When conditions permit, there is a classic track and a skate lane, shared by fat bikes and snowshoes. The lower loop is steep and one-way. The Kuller Trail connects to the Ragged Mountain Preserve Trail and the Five Brooks Trail.
Access: Walk or ski up to the left (south side) of the Carpet Lift/ Beginner Area from the Kiosk at the southeast corner of the parking lot.
Ragged Mountain Preserve Trail: At its most southeasterly point, The Kuller Trail connects to this 5 Km (3 mile) ungroomed loop on the preserve managed by the Coastal Mountains Land Trust. In turn, this connects to the Five Brooks Trail.
- The Kuller Trail is not a beginner trail. It starts with a steep uphill climb, classified as “Black Diamond” or “Most Difficult.” The final section coming back down to the parking lot is also steep with sharp turns. The rest of the trail is less strenuous.
- The Ragged Mountain Preserve Trail is generally moderate, but is ungroomed.
- Although these trails are not patrolled, the Kuller trail is actively groomed and you may encounter mechanized grooming equipment.
- Be prepared to take care of yourself. Ski with a friend.
- Construction, maintenance and grooming of these trails are done in collaboration with the Coastal Mountains Land Trust , MCNEMBA, and private landowners.
- Please stay on the marked trail system and ski/ ride/ snowshoe in the direction indicated.
- Nordic skiers need a valid season pass or day ticket to use the Alpine area trails.
- There are currently no trail fees for using the Nordic and snowshoe trails, however, donations toward the substantial costs of maintaining and grooming the trails are much appreciated!
- Ragged Mountain Preserve Trail: also open to snowshoeing
- Hosmer Brook Trail: a 2 mile “lollipop” loop accessed from the Triple Chair base. Go up (to one side) of the Spinnaker alpine trail, and then into the woods, following Hosmer Brook.
- Snowshoers need a valid season pass or day ticket to use Alpine area trails, other than the approach to the Hosmer Brook Trail and the Kuller Trail. During normal Snow Bowl operating hours the Rental Shop has snowshoes for rent.
