E-Ville Riders Snowmobile Club
Information Up-Date 1/11/2016 and I have some good news and bad.
THE BAD NEWS Snowmobiling has not been good so far this year, we got some snow before the ground was frozen and a lot of puddles and mud under the snow. We also got a lot of rain this past weekend.
"THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND PLEASE BE CAREFUL"
Lakes are not safe due to the mild weather we had in Nov and Dec. Moosehead Lake is open Onawa Lake, Sebec Lake and Greenwood Pond has very thin ice and is still open in places. PLEASE STAY OFF THE LAKES.
THE GOOD NEWS Tuesday evening we are expecting a snow storm 8 to 12 inches of snow.
The State of Maine announced that the State is participating in two special weekends to provide enhanced opportunity for snowmobilers.
Tri-State Snowmobile Weekend: This
annual three-day event will take place January 29 – 31, 2016
and allows all legally registered Maine snowmobiles to be operated in
New Hampshire and Vermont without being registered in those states.
This also means that all snowmobiles legally registered in New
Hampshire and Vermont can be operated in Maine without a current Maine
On behalf of the Officers and Board of Directors we wish you a safe riding season.
Presently we have over 65 miles of trails that we have been maintaining and grooming. This year there will be a cut back of trails because of logging operations in the area. We will still have plenty of scenic trails for snowmobiling.
I know it will effect some of you, so please contact me for some alternatives we might have.
Anyone who would like to help groom trails please contact me, We probably won't start grooming till the middle of Jan unless we get a big change in weather.
At the bottom of the letter is listed the open and closed trails.
On behalf of the Officers and Board of Directors we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
