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.

  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?
