“Winter is Coming” and it is time to be planning your snowmobile trip in Maine. Snowmobiling in this great state is vast, beautiful , exciting and fun! Maine has over 13,500 miles of snowmobile trails. The further you move away from the coast, toward the Lakes and Mountains of Maine, the more you’ll see snow and sledders. At the peak of winter, you’ll see an interesting ratio of cars to snowmobiles parked at restaurants, motels, and stores – leaning in favor of sleds or as Mainers call them – snowmachines.
If you’re not from Maine, it could be news to you that many companies in the North East take their corporate retreats during the “snowmobile season”. And why not? Maine has gorgeous log camps, lakeside resorts, and motels right on the trails, overlooking the immense snow tipped mountains and frozen lakes. Plenty of resorts also offer snowmobile rentals as well as tour guides. You can also hire guide that will escort you to your cabin.
Snowmobile terrain: Did you know that Maine is bigger than the 5 other New England States combined? Ayuh, It is! With more square miles than the rest of New England put together.
Maine has the most terrain and snowmobile trails in the Northeast! The scenery as your ride through Maine is exceptional–one of the most beautiful places to snowmobile in on the East Coast, and the country! You can even ride from Maine to Canada or New Hampshire.
Maine snowmobile clubs and organizations make sure that much of the vast Maine snowmobile trail network system is maintained with quality groomed trails and clear signage. The abundance of snow Maine receives every winter is the frosting on the cake, making your snowmobile ride through Maine’s woods along Maine’s lakes and mountains spectacular. Most years, snow blankets the state all winter, whether you like your sledding wild off the beaten track or groomed with trail signage, Maine has it all, all winter.
To maintain trails, Maine’s snowmobiling clubs and volunteers are constantly consulting landowners about trail passage privileges, brushing trails, building and repairing bridges, posting signage and grooming the trail system to welcome riders. Please show respect to private signs, posted land, and take note that if you trespass or speed recklessly, there are wardens patrolling the trails . And yes, you can be fined.
Ride Safe: Please always ride safely, operate within the law, cross the road safely, and respect private landowners, the land, and club efforts. Enjoy a snowmobile vacation in Maine this winter. Ride Right, enjoy, and ride with pride.
