Thursday, January 28th, 2021 at 12pm — that’s when our brewpub and resort plan to open for Maine snowmobiling season! Although we got a nice 8″ from the New Year’s storm, with another 4-5″ from Saturday the 16th, we still need another few inches to get good riding out of the lodge and on The Forks trails. Our groomers are heading out to pan some parts of the trail as temps dropped after the storm, but it’s not enough to groom. Don’t worry – when we get more snow, we WILL groom and we will let you know. Snowmobilers near and far are itching to get out – us included! So stay tuned, as this date is subject to change based on what Mother Nature decides. Additionally, neighboring club to the north, Coburn Summit Riders, did report a few more inches of snow and enough to groom some of their trail system. So, if you’re jonesin, come on up and grab a cabin at 50% off and trailer just a bit further north for some decent riding. Give us a call at (207) 663-4466!
Now, onto some good news…we’re more excited than ever for snow to fall for a lot of reasons – one being, The Forks Area Trails Club has welcomed a new groomer to the fleet!
As we wait for a little more snow, we’ll be sure to keep you updated every inch (or foot) of the way on Facebook, and will send an email out to the trail conditions list (sign up below) as soon as we can get groomers out. So, even though people are stoked to ride, please be mindful. Early season wind left our trail system, as well as systems across Maine, with a large amount of blowdowns to clear up before the season. We’re continuing to work on those. As usual, please be aware and respectful of logging operations AT ALL TIMES. Logging companies allow us on their lands and that is a privilege that we do not want to lose. For the most up to date trail reports, sign up below for our snowmobile trail conditions email. Another great resource is this Facebook group on snowmobile conditions around the state of Maine.
