Aroostook County Snowmobile Trail Report – March 26
Most projects are reporting that they will continue grooming throughout the weekend and will see what the weather brings next week. I heard from many snowmobilers at the beginning of the week are reporting very nice conditions.
• Deer Deer and more Deer are all over watch for tracks on the trails
• Moose are also everywhere.
• Remember gas is sometimes long distances so plan accordingly.

ITS 83 The 83 corridor is in good shape from top to bottom, remember Houlton will be grooming their section of 83 once a week as they are well over their hours.

ITS 92 This trail is in great shape, 92A, and 92B also are in great shape.
ITS 90 Fort Fairfield and Caribou will be out on Thursday to take care of the blown snow, while Portage has come down on Wednesday night so this trail should be good by Thursday night and into the weekend.
