Maine Snowmobiling Season Opens December 30

Monday, December 30th, 2019 at 12pm — that’s when our brewpub and resort open for Maine snowmobiling season! Although we generally try to open the weekend after Christmas, Mother Nature had other plans this year. After a drenching on December 14th, there just simply isn’t enough snow on the trails at this time. We received some snow on December 17th with more on the way for New Year’s Eve, so don’t fret — the snow always comes, and when it does, we’ll be ready! We will keep you updated every inch (or foot) of the way on Facebook and on our trail conditions blog, so stay tuned. There’s nothing we can do but wait — and do snow dances, of course. Every year, we get our snow dance on with a New Years Eve Party — and this year is no different. We’re all booked up and ready to party! Plus, there’s a New Year’s Eve storm in the works so it’s going to be GREAT!

We have been busy this off season, with some great trail work done by our Forks Area Trails Club, including a new bridge over Holly Brook…

Along with some brush work on the Bald Mountain Trail.

      Hi T.O. — unfortunately we do not have the snow to open on the 26th 🙁 Like most of the state, the rain on the 14th really put a damper on the trails. We received 6″ Tues/Weds though, and are looking at a 30th opening!

    When can we expect a trail report from you guys……….and are you still expecting to open the trails by December 30th?

    Just curious to know as it sounds like things have opened in the Rangeley area!

      Hi Bill! Yep- I just checked out Rangeley’s Facebook page. Pretty humorous trail report! Like Rangeley, we are low on snow and totally at the mercy of the weather. We are tracking two potentials for snow, one tomorrow and one Sunday/Monday, to see if we’ll be able to groom for the 30th. As of right now, we do not have enough snow to groom and there is no riding out of the lodge. You could get a little riding in on unplowed roads near Lake Moxie, but not for long. It will snow eventually though, and as soon as we get groomers out, we will post an update on the trail conditions page as well as on our Facebook page. Our lodge and restaurant open the 30th regardless, and we’ll be celebrating the New Year here on the 31st. If you have a reservation here and need more info regarding that, give our team a call at (207) 663-4466. And THINK SNOW!! 😀
