After an awkward and somewhat-concerning heatwave at the start of December, we are now in the midst of winter. Our neighbors at L.L. Bean are making sure we are staying active and happy during these colder months with all sorts of free and discounted events and activities.

From Jan. 1, 2022, until March 26, L.L. Bean and partners are hosting “Winter Across Maine” by offering the community discounted skiing tickets, free ice skating lessons, guided snowshoe outings, and much, much more.

There are many events to choose from and participate in and you can register for them all right here on Eventbrite.

One that caught my eye was free snow tubing at Bradbury in Pownal! I am a sucker for some good inner-tube sledding action. They will be hosting the snow tubing throughout the season starting on Jan. 2, 2022, with plenty of dates to choose from.

The hosts of the event will meet you at the base of the mountain in front of the upper parking lot and will supply free inner-tube sleds and helmets for everyone in your party.

I know it’s easy to get into the slump of winter and stay nestled indoors, but it’s important to get out, get active, and find those winter activities you enjoy with friends and family.

Whether you grab a discounted lift ticket, join a ski wax party, or throw on a pair of snowshoes, L.L. Bean has you covered. You can count me in for snow tubing.
