4 - 18 -15 Our trails are hanging in there, still very skiable, about 12" of firm cover on most trails, but we have stopped grooming for the season. Spring skiing conditions, wet granular, and the weather looks great for the weekend! Come up and have a spin or shoe down to the lake and enjoy the sun!!! As always, maps are located in the kiosk at the yurt.  Thanks for a great season!!!!!

Spring schedule:

April 18th: yurt closed
April 19th: yurt closed

Generally speaking, spring skiing surfaces are a bit hard in the AM and once the temps climb and the sun hits the snow, get soft and skiable.

A big welcome to those participating in Saddleback Unplugged! A great day to be out on the trails!

The Rangeley Lakes Trails Center is located in the heart of Maine's scenic western mountain and lake region. This area has an annual snowfall approaching 200 inches. Superb snow conditions plus fantastic terrain and grooming  make Nordic skiing here a wonderful experience for novice to expert. We also have a growing network of scenic single-track trails for snowshoeing.

Our rustic Yurt serves as our lodge. Ski and snowshoe rentals, hot and cold beverages, a variety of snacks, and hot soup are available in the yurt during the winter snow season.

Local lodgings range from fine hotels or bed and breakfast accommodations to motels and private luxury winter homes, condos, and quaint cabins. To find out more about where to stay in the Rangeley Lakes Region check our Links page for some recommendations.

Hey, kids (and kids in all of us)! Look what's appearing at the Trails Center this winter...Gnome Homes are popping up in all kinds of places out on the trails. There are even gnomes "living" inside. You are welcome to explore our new woodland creatures' domiciles as you enjoy our top-rated trails! Tell us about your gnome sitings when you get back to the yurt. HAVE FUN!!
