Winter Athletics

Teamwork happens in the winter on the slopes, on the trails, and on the court.

While we love all seasons, we hold a special place in our hearts for the winter months. Between our vast network of on-campus Pine Hill Nordic trails, our direct access to the competitive terrain at Sunday River Resort (just six miles away), and our basketball courts and training and weight rooms within our Farnsworth Field House, there is a ton of fun and camaraderie to be had on the slopes, on the court, and on our trails.
