Snowmobiling in northern Maine

It seems to be a big part of the economy up this way in the winter time.I travel about about 10 miles to work.There is always a buch of trucks going through hauling good sized trailers with sled in them.I'd say 60% of them are Fords.It seems a lot of Ford owners like to ride sleds.I get to see a lot of fancy trucks.lol.There are a lot of groomed trails up here.It's just like an interstate system.

We seem to have lost a lot of snow up here lately.Unusal for this time of year.There are a lot of trails though.It's just like an interstate system.Each town seems to have a ski-do club with a groomer.They do a pretty good job.It's a big business up here.

I have been to Baxter State Park on a snow mobiling trip. It was a great time, but an 8 hour ride from the Boston Area.

Shin Pond Village was the place we went to.

Maine has about 12,000mi of snowmobile trails around the state. I've been riding there for about 16-17 years. I have a house in bridgeton off moose pond. I can see people skiing down shawnee peak from the front porch.

Yea,the snow has been pretty scarce up here this year.I look for us to get one more storm,lol.It has been a strange year for snowfall up here.I hope you guys still enjoyed your trip up here.Snowmobiling seems to help our economy during the winter months.

Well well well, looks like there's some fellow sledheads on here....

Unfortunately, my F150 barely ever pulls the sleds (89 & a 92 Polaris Indy 500's one's an SP that has "motor work" piped, ported, bored, shaved) I live right on the trail, and the lake....

my racing friend just got back from up north...took a couple sneek peaks at the new Polaris fusion.....I like the F7 though myself....

MustangGT what u ride?

Oh yeah, that thing really moves. (the 89 at least keep getting the 2 mixed up)

I still don't know it's top speed, somewhere around 96 mph was the last high speed I saw. I gutted the airbox, had the carbs bored out to 39.5 mm (dual Mikuni roundslide 38's ) a set of wiseco pistons & rods & bearings and a set of DG twins. I run only Polaris red or Klotz oil in it. :-staun
