When Does Maine Snowmobiling Season Begin?
Friday, December 29th, 2023 at 2pm — that’s when our brewpub and resort open for Maine snowmobiling season! In the meantime, The Forks Area Trails Club will be busy in the woods – cutting trees, setting up signage, and getting the groomers into tip top shape. What else? Well, we’ll be waiting for the snow to fall, of course! We will keep you updated every inch (or foot) of the way on Facebook and as we await our first good groom. There’s nothing we can do but wait — and do snow dances, of course!
So, even though people are stoked to ride as soon as the snow starts flying, please be mindful. Our trails, in addition to most local trails, are not open yet and will not be until at least mid/end of December! The land owners for the majority of our trail system in The Forks are logging companies, and they have not switched to their winter logging operations yet. There may be plowed roads where the snowmobile trail will be located, but are not ready for our access yet. 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. We will keep you updated on everything snowmobiling on our Facebook page — including when our groomers go out for the first time, with continued trail conditions updates. Another great resource is The Forks Area Trails Club Facebook page, where trailmaster Ben and others post updates on snowmobile conditions around our area.
