2013-14 season trail conditions

April 3, 2014   Final trail report, We had 6-8 inches of new snow Monday night but warm temps over the past few days has melted much of that and prior to that storm we had 50 plus degrees on Saturday. The trails are no longer being groomed and in many locations are not passable, for us the season is over.  The Down East Sunrise Trail is closed for mud season.  Enjoy spring and summer  if it ever gets here, see you next season.

March 27, 2014  Yesterday"s "blizzard" did very little if anything to help the snowmobile trails. Trails have not been groomed for several weeks now and there are still many bare spots and icy condtions on both ITS 81 and the Down East Sunrise Trail. Snowmobile riding for this area is about over for the season.

February 21  TRAIL ALERT!!!  The club groomer is broken down with a flat tire at Mile 32 on Sunrise Trail. It is on an open stretch with the reflective triangles in place to identify hazard. Efforts are being made to repair this  but it may be there until Monday, as it needs new tire and tire shop in Bangor is closed on Saturday's.  This happened on the return trip so the grooming was completed to Jonesboro.

Feb 20    Last night they groomed the Sunrise Trail from Cherryfield to Washington Junction. Tonight they are grooming the trail from Cherryfield to Jonesboro. There has been a great snowcover especially out in the woods away from the wind. They have also been dragging up on ITS 81 for the past few days. There are a couple of wet spots that you will need to proceed through with caution. Remember this is a new trail this year and is just starting to show some places that need attention when it gets wet. Travel with caution and be safe. Thanks guys for all the great work !!!

Feb 19th Received 5-6 inches of new snow last night making for some great riding conditions on the recently groomed trails, more snow possible tonight!!!

Feb 18th   Received 11-16 inches of new fluffy snow on Saturday night and sunday. ITS 82 (DEST) has been groomed in its entire 85 mile length by all clubs. ITS 81 to Deblois is being groomed today>  3-6 inches of new snow predicted for tonight.

Feb 14 11:30am    we received 6-7 inches of snow last night before changing over to rain around 9:00 currently still raining with a lot  of the snow melted. the trails will probably not be groomed tonight until and if all the moisture is out of the snow.  Another possible snowstorm tomorrow night should help the trails significantly. Stay tuned for any updates tonight

Feb 5th 10 pm   6-7 inches of new snow

Feb 3 Warm temps over past 2 days have only worsened trail conditions since last report. possible snow Wednesday

January 29    The couple of  inches of snow that we had received over the weekend was wiped out by rain on Monday leaving trails bare again.  Currently there is no snow in the forecast hopefully February will bring change.

January 23   received 2-3 inches of snow on sunday but not enough to ride on the trails, we did not receive any snow on Tuesday night into Wednesday either as predicted. Next possible chance now is Saturday into Sunday

January 17    Both ITS 81and ITS 82 are bare with snow in many places and icy in others. No snow for riding.
 
The Down East Sunrise Trail from the parking lot in Washington Junction to Machias has no snow. It is about 60% ice and 40% exposed gravel with very long stretches of exposed surface between Franklin and Steuben
 
 

January 9, 2014    ITS 81 and ITS 82 (DEST) are clear of tree debris from ice storm.  ITS 81 was groomed from cherryfield to Deblois on Sunday January 5.  Significant rain on Monday followed by freezing temperatures have made all trails icy with poor conditions for snowmobiling.  With temperatures forecast in the 40's for Saturday and Sunday and more significant rain predicted for Saturday night trail conditions will only get worse. 

January 4    ITS 81   cleared today from DEST to clubhouse trail work will continue clearing tomorrow from clubhouse there is another mile to clear before hitting a 3 mile cleared section as far as the baseline . any help would be appreciated  on trail clearing leaving clubhouse at 8:30am.  clubhouse open for breakfast and lunch
