I'm wondering if there's still open water/mud bars out that way. It was below zero last night and pretty cold over the last couple of days....things should be locking up soon. :dunno:

My uncle runs the groomer in Fort Kent. I spoke with him 20 minutes ago and he said the trails are good to ride. He also mentions the railroad beds are perfect. Yes, more snow would be prefered. The Fort kent area is supposed to get another storm Sunday into Monday. Adding to what they already have. So, this information is straight for the horses mouth. I might consider going up there next weekend. I really need to ride...

That is awesome news Mthib207. Your uncle rocks and you kick ass for sharing this promising news. Too bad everyone isn't this forthcoming with info. on places to ride. Fort Kent is by far the best riding in the State and the people are fantastic. I wonder if Long Lake is even iced over yet??

My friend and i have a room booked in St Agatha next weekend for 8 nights. Were were thinking of canceling but if conditions are ok we still may go up. I think were gonna hold out untill late next week to make the call. Im keeping my fingers crossed for some good snow from this next storm. We appreciate your uncles work. The rail bed as always been in great shape in past years when we have gone up.

Kt. today to do st!t and I seen sleds moving about... Also some going by the farm here in Wallagrass on 73A... More snow is needed but there is some riding to be had !!!! I've been putt puttin' around on the back 40 some, nuff snow to lube the slides but the scags grab dirt at times... Need another 6" ta make it sweet!!! Dat's what she said

going up to fort kent tommow morning early, yea i doubt the lakes are safe yet, hopefully we get some decent riding in though.[/b]

skidooguy6490,
If I might make a suggestion ... do the rail-bed and head to St Francis and Allagash.. Heard there's more white up that way?? Taint sure but Escourt usually gets more of it...

YOUR THE BALLS. I AM SURE ALL THE GUYS HERE APPRECIATE YOUR GOOD NEWS. WE ARE ALL PRAYING THAT WE GET SNOW EVERYWHERE BUT IT IS NICE TO KNOW IF WE REALLY WANT TO RIDE THERE IS A SPOT FOR THE DIE HARDS TO TRAVEL TOO.

I also heard that Eagle Lake is not quite frozen yet. Although the temps have been seriously cold up there, another couple weeks, the lakes should be in good shape.... If anyone goes to Fort Kent over the weekend, lets us know how it was...............
