Day tripping to the mountains for skiing is fine, but every now and again isn’t it nice to make it a full weekend adventure, to treat yourself a little? Of course! After all, there’s nothing quite like skiing the entire day and after après ski, enjoying a relaxed dinner.

Tarzan did it. Now you can, too. Sunday River’s zipline tours fly you through the Maine woods as you cross back and forth over a deep ravine and stream bed on the seven lines of the course. And yes, you can belt out your best Tarzan yell. We won’t judge.

Pumpkins, pork, wife-carrying & clothing swap: 6 things to do in Maine this weekend

Pumpkins, pork, wife-carrying & clothing swap: 6 things to do in Maine this weekend
October 07, 2013

Between the pumpkins, the pork, and the potential for new pants, this weekend is looking more promising than ever. And some of you lucky folks even have Monday off. I don’t, which means I’ll be calling in sick and going to watch the pumpkinboat regatta in Damariscotta. The regatta is the final event of Pumpkinfest, which continues all weekend with pumpkin desserts, pumpkin carving, pumpkin hurling, pumpkin catapulting, and pumpkin drops. Over in Gardiner, pork is the center of attention during Swine & Stein, and it’s a cheese-centric Sunday during Open Creamery Day. Husbands will drop wives up at Sunday River during the annual Wife-Carrying Championship, and for those of you who like to keep your closets fresh and well-circulated, don’t miss SWAP Maine’s swap at SPACE.

Chebang, wine, Art Walk & zipline: 5 things to do this weekend

There’s no lack of action on Fourth of July, but what happens after the fireworks end? There’s still a whole weekend to consider. If your hankering for colorful explosions in the sky isn’t yet sated, head out to Chebeague Island for the Chebeague Chebang, where fireworks will cap off a day of barbecue, music, and sack races. There’s a wine sail Friday, and Art Walk returns, too. And on Sunday, seize the opportunity to throw things at runners (soft, gentle, colorful things that the runners want you to throw at them).

See, Sunday River is for skiers…in the winter. But once summahtime rolls in, and all that snow flees to colder climes where it can hang about until December, that mountain becomes an awful nice place for non-skiers to play, too.

13 things to do this winter that don’t require snow

13 things to do this winter that don’t require snow
February 19, 2013

“It starts snowing in November and we don’t see the ground again until May.” An old roommate once described a Maine winter that way. And while it may historically be true, the winters of recent memory – and, like, right now – don’t seem keen on abiding by the six-months-of-snow-covered-ground rule. It’s been warm-ish in Maine’s southern parts. The snow has melted. And the snowshoeing? Not great at the moment, unless you head farther west or north. So what does one do to keep occupied in Winter when the snow is being elusive? This stuff:

The Ski Maine Peak to Peak Challenge is the simple tally of the number of ski areas a person visits over the course of the winter. The format is based on the popular concept that hikers have followed over the years of “bagging peaks.”
