ITS 83 Everyone will be out on this trail as well by Friday. Remember to watch for signs as there have been reroutes.

ITS 81 We are good on this one. Projects have been out this week and will be out again to freshen up for the weekend….. remember it ends at the Rt 105 intersection east of Squa Pan and IS NOT OPEN FROM RT 105 TO ITS 85

ITS 92 No problems here……everyone is grooming with plenty of snow.

ITS 90 Everyone reporting grooming from Portage through to Ft Faifield.

ITS 88 Ashland and Aroostook River are grooming and this is in good shape.

ITS 86 Ox Bow and Meduxneakeag both have been out and should be set up in good shape for the weekend. 71-D is groomed on the Ox Bow and Shin Pond end. And remember the Homestead Lodge in Ox Bow now has gas during daylight hours.

ITS 105 Van Buren up and running along with Washburn, Aroostook River, Chapman, Walker Siding …….but remember you can’t go west on ITS 81 at the intersection east of Squa Pan so keep that in mind when planning.

ITS 120 Allagash and Eagle Lake have been out this week. Go left at the ITS 92 intersection on to Allagash and Dickey and try the Glazier Lake Loop plenty of snow.

Rt 100 Caswell has been out and remembr coming from Caswell there are two branches of this trail one goes north out of Caswell and one goes west. They both intersect Rt 89 one closer to Rt 94 and the other closer to the Madawaska River…….watch for markings and on the one that goes west further south of Caswell there is a very active logging operation so use caution. 

Rt 89 Groomed north to Rt 94 and in good shape. PLEASE NOTE that Rt 100 now intersects Rt 89 in two locations so watch for signs.

Rt 94 Open and groomed for a great ride between ITS 81 and Rt 105. Rt 79 to Long Lake off ITS 105 is groomed and remember Rt 96 veers off 79 and rejoins ITS 81 or you can brave the lake ride for those wanting to access the St John Valley and local eateries via Long Lake.

Great post...for a minute, there, I thought maybe I could be on your side of the continent...but then I looked outside at the daffodils and remembered about the famously wet coast!

Li ... Winter is one of the favorite of the four seasons!

Spring snowmobiling, skiing, etc.  Nothing as beautiful or as much fun.

You have that right Gabe... skiing in shirt sleeves and getting sun burn with the swish swish is something else with the long views, jaw dropping scenery... but your blue green water is pretty snazzy too! A powerful attraction along with seeing Mickey and Minnie if you have kids.
