12 Mar March Snow Top 5 Snow Activities

March Snow

Snowy March for 2018 in Greenville, Maine. Looking for snow in March? You will find plenty here in Moosehead Lake Region of Maine. February warm up came too early and wondered if it would be an early Spring in Maine. Well, March came in like a lion, and several Nor’Easters hit New England states with high winds, snow and rain. As a result, inland and Northern Maine, has kept a snow base in the woods of approximately 14 inches of snow.   Add that to the 14 inches of snow that fell over the last few days and thats 2 feet plus of snow in March. The Cozy Moose Cabins has listed Top 5 March Snow Activities including wildlife watching at our cabins on Moosehead Lake. Winter storm warnings for “Skylar” the 3rd Nor’easter to hit Maine in last 2 weeks brining big time snow fall to Maine.

  1. Go Snowmobiling – With temperatures at night going down below freezing, grooming of snowmobile trails has started up once again. Greenville, Maine had four groomers out the other day. Surrounding towns, and snowmobile clubs have also been out making for some awesome riding, perhaps, the best of conditions for 2018 due to a snow in March.  Explore our great snowmobile trails.
  2. Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding – Big Squaw Mountain is back with groomed trails for downhill skiing and snowboarding, new equipment rentals and trails. Learn more about Maine winter snow vacations. 
  3. Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing – Outdoor adventures in March planned for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and winter hiking. This weekend brings a Winter Family Fun Day Lily Bay State Park on the trails – Free Skiing and snowshoeing equipment rentals, bonfire, hot dogs and hot chocolate.  Admission – $1.50 for ages 12 -64 for this Snowy Event Saturday, March 17, 2018.    In addition, Northwoods Wellness organizes group hikes throughout the season in the Moosehead Lake Region.
  4. Waterfall Hikes – Gaining popularity in the springtime as in March snow typically starts to melt and runoff waters freeze and re-freeze making for amazing sights. Get your snowshoes, ice grippers and stabilizer poles and plan ahead to experience a waterfall hike in the snow in March.
  5. Wildlife Sightings- Wildlife encounters should be more plentiful as the March snow base will be deeper in the woods than usual. Animals will tend to walk on snowmobile trails or packed trails to conserve energy. It also provides them with new sources of food being able to reach higher up on trees to eat tree growth as the buds have started to emerge.  Also a great time for winter bird watching as well. How about a spring snowmobile wildlife tour?

Moving Snow – Then off I Go

Maine Snowmobiling Reports

Greenville Maine Moosehead Lake Region has February snowmobile conditions in December. This is very promising and with sub zero temperatures it looks like it is here to stay. Last night we got about 4- 6 inches of  beautiful white snow. No rain here.  The Maine Snow Report is comprised of various local resources and based on snowmobile riders observations.
Maine snowmobiling – Come on and get it. The snow base varies from in town trails being the least, to  snowmobile trail conditions being very good with a hard packed base 2 feet++ in higher elevations.  All major trails have been groomed at least once, and have very little traffic. Most all trails are open and a few re-routes are to be expected due to logging. They are being signed with a detour on RT 66 and a small section to Kokadjo. I noticed panned trails 2 weeks ago in the area club trails.

 

Squaw Mountain Ski Resort in Greenville reports all 14 trails open with 2 feet of natural snow before the recent storm passed last night.

Thinking about a snowmobile vacation – don’t hesitate- the conditions are great. Greenville caters to snowmobilers but also snow vacations for skiing, dog sledding, cross country skiing, and ice fishing starting this year off with a bang of white snow and great ice conditions.

Plan a Maine snowmobile vacation early this year, as January is the time to get some great riding in and look for antler sheds. The beauty of the season is amazing and something to be experienced. Reports will be generated throughout the season, sign up and get the vacation news for Moosehead Lake Region.
