Mount Blue State Park Conditions & Activities

Park & Trail Conditions

March 5, 2021 | Steady winds all week have left the park's ski trails in poor condition. They are fast and icy and covered in debris. The park crew will work on them this weekend, but for the short term it might be a good time to try snowshoes. The snowmobile trails have been groomed and are in good condition. Sliding is fast on Center Hill. The ice rink also suffered this week from mother nature and is skatable but rough.
