The Official Snowmobile Trail Report

Caribou, Me. 04736
The way this winter is going we may be seeing this flag for Memorial Day. All I can say is the conditions for being April 6th are incredible and there are no real issues to report. The reports that I am getting are that this is mid-winter conditions.
Most clubs from the Central Aroostook area and the Northern areas have been out grooming since Thursday and will continue throughout the weekend. There are a few clubs in the Central Aroostook area that have stopped grooming but are reporting good conditions on their sections.
The wind blew hard on Thursday resulting in some downed trees, so please keep this in mind when riding a section that has not seen a groomer yet. Also, there has been some significant drifting that has occurred in open terrain, so again please keep this mind.
If you want to see something awesome head on up to the Long Lake Sporting Club and be a part of history when the world’s largest ice carousel turns.
