The Finnish Center at Saima Park

Fitchburg, MA


New ski trails are being prepared at Saima for the coming season

The new trail addition starts and ends on the Athletic Field, and will add some hilly terrain, to complement our existing trails.

You can see part of the trail and the terrain on the following pictures, taken on November 3, 2001 during the preparation of the trail.  All pictures courtesy of Karl Makela.
