Thursday 3-22-18:  Spring has arrived,with wicked good conditions here at the Trails Center!!  Another gorgeous day, packed powder surfaces, and temps in the low thirties expected!!  It's Recip Day, bring a season pass in from any nordic center in the world and get a 1/2 price trail pass!  Bikers: most trails should be firm enough for biking, there are soft spots in the middle, best along the outer 2 feet. It will be firmest in the AM. Get it while you can!!!

Loppet update:  A big thank you to all the Loppeteers who came out, and our fabulous volunteers that step up year after year. Can't wait for next year!   RESULTS

The critters that call RLTC home are becoming more active as the days get longer - otter, beaver, moose, deer, snowshoe hare, and fox are a few we share the trails with here! Moose sighting on Sisu this past weekend:)

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.

Thanks go out to this hardworking group from South Church in Andover, MA who volunteered their time to help sweep the trails after the big windstorm this fall. Thanks also to Jan Holden, Jen Murray, and Al Jopell! Many hands made light work!
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!!
