It seems a though now that it has started snowing it doesn't want to stop.  We awoke to another 6 inches of snow this morning and it's still coming down.  Current temp is 17 degrees and the sun is just now making it's way out from behind the clouds.  Look at it this way, with 2012 being a leap year, you have an extra day to ride!

We still have some cabins available for this weekend, so give me a call and load up your gear.  Riding couldn't be any better that this!

At long last a REAL winter snow storm has arrived at Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  We received a good 12 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down.  The RLSC groomer made a complete trip last night, so get on that sled and ride.  This is what we have all been so patiently waiting for.

We received three inches of fresh, fluffy, sticky snow overnight just in time to cover the groomer tracks from last night's run.  Skies are in a heavy overcast with a current temp of 32 degrees and rising.  Trail conditions are good to great with thin spots in and around towns.

With school vacations in many areas this week, we have seen a lot of families enjoying time together in the great outdoors.  Temps have been hovering around freezing so it's not too cold for the kids, but cold enough to keep the snow we have on the ground.

Just another friendly reminder - legally, as soon as you cross the state border, you need a Maine registration for your sled.  Yes, even to ride into Bosebuck.

YES, it's snowing!  We have a little over an inch on the ground already this morning and it's still coming down.  All our cabins are booked for the holiday weekend, but we do have some openings mid-week.  So, if your schedule allows for little adventure on a week day, give us a call and avoid the extra traffic.

Good job Jerry for taking down another coyote.  That's one less that we'll have to worry about harassing the deer herd.

Maine Snowmobile Registration REQUIRED

We had another busy weekend here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  Thank you to all our regular patrons and the new faces who stopped by for their first visit.  We'd love to see you all again.

There were some issues with registrations, so let's make this perfectly clear; by Maine state law, as soon as you cross the border into Maine you need a Maine registration for your sled. And, yes, that means even to come into Bosebuck whether it be for food, gas or any other reason.  For those who have called an inquired about this issue, we have always passed along this same information. 

We offer the opportunity to obtain a non-resident registration here at Bosebuck as a courtesy to our lodging guests and also to those off the trail who choose to purchase a registration in that manner.  Yes, we require cash only because the State of Maine only pays agents a single $1.00 per registration and after the time needed to process the paperwork and mail the monthly reports, we are not making any money as a registration agent.

For those of you who were mad, upset or frustrated at the Maine Warden Service for doing their job, please keep in mind that it is your responsibility to know the laws before you ride.  Not a single ticket was written on Bosebuck property for those without registrations.  On the contrary, everyone was given the opportunity to purchase a registration and avoid a possible fine. 

Please keep in mind that those same Warden's who may have gotten your dander up are the same guys who will find you after an accident on the trail during the middle of the night with sub-zero temperatures.  It's a thankless job, but someones got to do it.  We have limited natural resources and they are the guardians.

How about taking all that negative energy and turning it into a positive by shining a light on the situation and taking steps to change it.  Contact your NH or Maine legislator and ask them to reinstate reciprocity between the two states.  This will only benefit everyone and give you more great trails to ride!

RLSC's groomer was on schedule with his Sunday night run from Oquossoc so those venturing out this morning will be riding on a freshly groomed trail.  Thanks Eben!

Saturday has once again arrived and we are busy preparing for another banner day here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  The current temperature is 20 degrees with light snow falling.  I wish I could tell you that we received a foot of fresh snow, but that is not the case.  On the bright side, due to the cold temps we have been experiencing, many nights below zero, we have held onto what snow has managed to come our way.  Of course we want more, more, more, so keep wishing for that big Nor'easter.  I know many of you have no snow, but trails here are in good to great condition.

The groomer from Oquossoc completed his appointed rounds last night arriving here at Bosebuck around 11PM.  Those riding ITS 84 are certainly in for a treat this morning on that freshly groomed trail.  Hope to see in the dinning room today!

No big snow storms, but we are picking up smaller amounts, 2, 3 and 4 inches of snow every other day or so.  We have light snow falling this morning and the RLSC groomer was in yesterday on his usual Wednesday run.  Although it did warm to 36 degrees yesterday, we had plenty of snow on the ground to absorb what little rain we did receive.  Overnight temps plunged into the teens and we are currently holding at 19 degrees this morning.

Based on the feedback received from riders the past two days, trails are in great condition and have rebounded very well from the enormous weekend traffic.
