25 Nov Maine Snowmobiling Season Opens December 26
Thursday, December 26th, 2019 at 2pm — that’s when our brewpub and resort officially open for Maine snowmobiling season! Last year we kicked off snowmobiling with a SNOW-VEMBER for the record books — this year, mother nature is going slow and steady! We received about 8″ from November 24th storm, and all hands are on deck getting the trails and lodge ready for opening day. Every year, we get our snow dance on with a New Years Eve Party — and this year is no different. Some lodging is still available, so come on up!
Jim and co. have been doing some major bridge work out on The Forks trail system…

And even though all of this recent snow is getting people stoked to ride, please be mindful. Our trails, in addition to most local trails, are not open yet! Most of our landowners for The Forks Area Trail System are logging crews, and they have not switched to their winter logging operations yet. There may be plowed roads where the snowmobile trail will be located this winter, but are not ready for our access yet. Please be aware and respectful of logging operations AT ALL TIMES. Furthermore, hunting season is still in effect — let the hunters have their time in the woods. Our time to ride the trails will be here soon enough!
Get excited — but hang tight. Get your favorite trailside cabin booked and keep your eye on our webcam. Support your local club, including The Forks Area Trails Club (don’t forget about our cozy cabin giveaway for supporting us, too). Sign up for Jim’s trail report, coming to you weekly with no fluff – just straight snowmobile conditions – starting on our opening day, December 26th. We’ll keep you posted with trail photos and ride videos right here, and on our recommended rides page.
