We are pleased to announce the following activities:


MARC2012 is offering complimentary half-day ski lift passes for conference attendees. Individuals are responsible for ski/snowboard equipment rental. The rental fee is $30.00 per person.

Ice Skating:

The Town of Waterville Valley's Indoor Ice Arena is located at the center of activity in Waterville Valley in the Town Square complex on the shores of Corcoran's Pond.

Ice Arena Skate times: 11:00am-12:30pm and 2:30pm- 4:00pm Skate Rental: $4.00 per person

Feel free to bring your own ice skates to avoid the skate rental fee.


Snowshoeing is the fastest growing outdoor winter recreation activity in the US! Many of Waterville's nordic and alpine skiers and non-skier guests are discovering that this activity offers a low cost, easy and enjoyable way to experience the winter landscape while improving your physical fitness.

MARC2012 is pleased to offer a guided tour for a discounted fee of $25.00, which includes shoe rental. A tour will leave the Nordic Center in Town Square at 1pm, lasting approximately 1.5-2 hours. If you do happen to own your own snowshoes, a trail pass only costs $14.00 per person.
