2016-2017 season trail conditions

March 16
Received 8-10 inches of new snow that had some moisture in it and kept it in place. Sunrise trail has been groomed from Cherryfield to Franklin and is being groomed right now (3/16/17 11:00 am)from Cherryfield to Jonesboro. ITS 81 has been groomed from sunrise trail to clubhouse (2 1/2 miles). 81 north of clubhouse has not been groomed yet litle crusty but is good riding. Plans are to groom that tonight or tomorrow.

March 2
Snowmobiling is over around here. ITS 82 is closed for mud season and much of ITS 81 is bare. who would have thought two weeks ago when we got 4 feet of snow in a week that we would be snow poor this early. It certainly has been a short season.

Feb 23
45 degrees and rain in forecast. trails have been groomed but are deteriorating fast. Grooming temperatures have not been ideal for the past few nights. ITS 82 (sunrise trail) groomed Feb 21 from frankiln to cherryfield and cherryfield to Jonesboro, early this morning.There are numerous bare spots on sunrise trail. ITS 81 groomed from mile 0 at sunrise trail to mile 9 near Schoodic brook on the 21st. the remaining 6 miles was not groomed this time because of several waterholes along the way. The other 6 miles was last groomed on Sunday the 19th. A two mile section of the trail will be detoured around these spots on the 24th or 25th depending on weather and trail conditions

Feb 18
Finally have trails open and groomed. ITS 81 groomed from sunrise trail to Deblois near Mile 14. ITS 82 (sunrise trail groomed from Jonesboro to Franklin yesterday and last night. Kelcy trail is being packed down this afternoon and will probably be groomed tomorrow.

Note: as of noon time today ITS 81 north of Deblois had not been opened up yet by the Airline Riders SC but I have been told they are working on it.

Get out ride the trails and have fun. Ride Right, Ride Sober

February 11
Finally snow, got 12 inches plus. grooming operations are under way. from clubhouse to DEST on ITS 81 has been groomed, and Cherryfield to Jonesboro has been groomed. This afternoon and tonight more grooming will be taking place. Snowing right now (11:30am), 1-4 predicted and 18-24 predicted for Sunday night into Monday. This site may not be updated for a few days. please go to or facebook page for more updates.

February 8
Had approx 3 inches of wet snow last night, if it doesn't settle too much (current temp 42 degrees) might give us a base as it is suppose to come off cold. Storm predicted for tomorrow between 6-12 inches.

January 24  No grooming yet, NO snow at all on either ITS 81 or ITS 82 (Sunrise trail). None of ITS 81 has been groomed.

January 26
Still no snow, had sleet, freezing rain then warm temps so we are at a standstill and no snow in forecast for at least week. Sunrise trail is same. On the upside, Club members have been taking advantage of this weather and doing a lot of brushing back , replacing bridges with culverts in some locations to accommodate larger grooming equipment.

Feb 2
Only received 2-3 inches of fluffy snow. Not enough to even ride on let alone groom. Disma, Nothing in forecast until next week and that looks like could turn to rain.
