Welllllllllllll......... I'm currently 4 hrs south of home and it surely looks like spring. But Guy tells me our trails have held up over the weekend. With the warm temperatures forecasted, it isn't looking good for anymore trail riding. The off trail riding will be good for a little longer. We will surely keep you posted.

As always we are open, but will not have fuel since as the snow melts its reeking havoc on our road.

On another note: For those dad has been in the hospital since last Tuesday. Starting at Maine General in Augusta and then being transferred to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. He had pneumonia and CHF. He is improving now. But it's been a little stressful over the the last week, but moving in the right direction now.
I can't thank everyone enough for the thoughts and prayers that were sent our way. It means more than you realize!! ❤️💕❤️💕❤️

Well this is probably the biggest thank you I've ever posted. Tonight our son was in a snowmobile accident between the Forks and Jackman. A voicemail message from rescue was surely not what we wanted to receive when we got back from grooming.

He had gone over a steep ice embankment and ended up in a brook or stream with his sled on him. He was able to get from under it soaking wet and make it back to the trail and began to walk.

Well, if it hadn't been for Derrick Fortier in the groomer....this story could be completely different.

Our son was transported to Skowhegan hospital. But he's ok.

All snowmobilers post or state how appreciative they are for what groomers do, but it goes well beyond just making a great trail.

So next time you run into a groomer operator...thank them again.

And if you see Derrick....give him a big hug from this mom!!!! ❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️

So from one groomer to another....THANK YOU!!!
