Carter's XC Ski Center

420 Main Street
Oxford, ME 04270


Dave Carter has over 40 years experience cross country skiing. He started on the Gould Academy X-C ski team, with noted coach, Paul Kailey, and went on to compete on the U. Maine X-C ski team. Paul Kailey eventually hired Dave to start the Sunday River Ski Touring Center. He was one of 4 Mainers who helped start the Jackson Ski Touring Center, in Jackson, NH. 

"We have excellent snow here," says Dave. "The conditions here are pretty much perfect ." He's also working to promote more back-country skiing. "If you're an alpine skier, you'll like our hills. We have elevation," he says. "But if you're not, we have flat, too."
