We look forward to welcoming and hosting friends from Maine on the beautiful trails at Quarry Road! The theme for the weekend is State by State United We Ski! While we cannot all gather at one festival, we can still celebrate skiing at home in our own state. We can focus on what makes Maine unique while celebrating a shared love of skiing that knows no border.
COVID Requirements: This event is open to Maine residents ONLY. Our primary goal is the safety and well being of our community and all our event participants. We require that everyone follow NENSA’s COVID Guidelines as well as all Maine State COVID Requirements.
Health Screening: All attendees must fill out a Pre–Event Health Screen by 5pm on Thursday March 4th or they will not be allowed at the event. NENSA will distribute the Pre-Event Health Screen as soon as registration closes on March 3rd. Coaches, parents, volunteers, and race officials are also subject to NENSA Health Screening. All attendees will also be required to fill out the CDC Facilities Health Screen the day of the event and show proof of completion upon arrival at the venue. There will be no indoor space for event attendees.
Registration Notes: All parents, coaches, volunteers, and race officials must also register (for free). Registration is capped to meet Maine State Gathering size limits. If we reach our cap on Saturday, we may ask parents to stay in their vehicles so we can allow more skiers to participante. Participant registration includes an event T-Shirt. You can pick your size during checkout. Participants who register after February 17th are not guaranteed a t-shirt!!
NENSA Membership: A full NENSA membership or a day membership is required to race. The day membership cost ($10) is factored into the Non NENSA Member race entry. If you have NEVER been a member of NENSA, you can sign up for a free GET SKIING membership prior to registering for this event. Direct all membership questions to [email protected].
Refund Policy: If you do not pass our health screen, or if we must cancel the event, you will be fully refunded (except for the small SkiReg fee).
