We invite you to experience what Snogoer Magazine rates as one of the TOP 10 best places to snowmobile in North America. Our system of well groomed, interconnected snowmobile trails is world class. In fact, northern Maine is home to over 2,300 miles of snowmobile trails that offer days and weeks of endless sledding adventure. Snowmobiling in northern Maine is an experience you'll not soon forget.
The northern Maine snowmobiling season usually starts in December and often runs well in to April. Natural snowfall is one of our most plentiful resources. Each winter our snowmobile trails are groomed by state of the art machinery through a network of snowmobile clubs working together to create our portion of the InterconnectedTrail System (ITS).
Northern Maine snow conditions are almost always fantastic from January through March, where we often measure snowfall in feet rather than inches. Our snowmobile trails are safe, well marked, and snowmobile trail maps are available at most Chambers of Commerce and many local area lodging establishments and stores. Take a ride on the ITS through northern Maine, or join us for the International Snowmobiler's Festival bringing U.S. and Canadian snowmobilers together for a weekend of cross border snowmobiling in northern Maine and western New Brunswick.
Just imagine walking out of your hotel door to your snowmobile waiting in the parking lot and driving right off the lot and on to the trail. Many restaurants, stores, and other establishments are located on the snowmobile trail system in northern Maine. Access to lunch, dinner, gas, and other necessities does not require a car ride or a walk – sled right up to the front door and be greeted with a warm northern Maine welcome.
