Thomas College is in Maine, so the winters are cold, and a lot of snow is usually in the forecast. But the warm spring and summer temperatures make up for it! In 2009-10, Waterville had a very wet, rainy, and rather warm winter, but in the past, the area has received two or more feet of snow in one storm alone. But all this snow makes for great skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, and sledding.
The fall here is a popular time on campus because the temperatures are warm enough to participate in multiple outdoor activities during the day and in the evening. Intramural sports are popular in the fall too because they can be played inside or out. So, overall, it is mostly the winter you have to worry about, but take advantage of it! Maine has some great skiing.
