Maine's longest winter season boasting meticulous trails.

120" of annual snowfall makes Maine's Aroostook County a winter wonderland of fun and adventure. Here winter arrives early and stays late in the season through April. More than 2,300 miles of groomed winter trails are accessible to snowmobiles thanks to public and private land access. Aroostook County boasts colorful traditions and people with a love for winter - here you will find winter festivals and races each weekend that will warm your spirit and introduce you to the goods and foods we are so fondly known for.

The acclaimed Interconnecting Trail System (ITS) that connects the region is groomed weekly by volunteer snowmobile clubs and municipalities - this multipurpose trail welcomes dog sleds, skiers, walkers, snowshoers, fat tire bikes, and snowmobilers. Remember to ride safe, ride right.
