Winter in Franklin County, Maine

Snow-Covered Bridge - Alana Ranney

Winter may get cold here in Franklin County, but the last thing you’ll want to do is stay inside when there’s so much to do in the outdoors! We like to brag about how great our mountains are for skiing and snowboarding, our trails for snowmobiling, and our lakes for ice fishing. An added bonus to keeping active through the winter is that it makes all the long, snowy days pass by much quicker.

Check out our recreation page to learn more about where the best places are to enjoy all your favorite winter activities in Franklin County.

If you'd rather stay out of the cold this winter, you'll also find plenty of great places to shop or dine out in our area. Just scroll down to the icons below!
