HOME OF THE BEST TRAIL SYSTEM IN MAINE
Welcome to the Rangeley Lakes Region, home of the best snowmobile trail systems in Maine.
RLSC is one of the premier snowmobile clubs in the beautiful state of Maine and offers the
flawlessly groomed Ronald W. Sargent Trail System.
Rangeley Lakes Snowmobile Club Trail System:
RLSC owns and operates FIVE state-of-the-art grooming tractors with trail drags utilized to groom a flawless trails network. Our regional trail system boasts one of the largest organized clubs out of 281 in the State of Maine. Our club draws from a solid group of volunteers and paid groomer operators to keep our trail system unmatched in New England. These professionals have refined trail grooming into an art. The typical snowmobile trail is approximately 16 feet wide and manicured to perfection. Our trails are straight and fast.
Trails get groomed late at night, allowing them to freeze to a smooth, solid hard-pack. Grooming late at night allows time for the trail to "set up" and this keeps the trail flatter for a longer period of time. Also, grooming at night is much safer for riders. Meeting a groomer on a corner on the trail in the daytime is very dangerous. The lighting on the groomers at night alert riders that a machine is heading in their direction.
The Maine Snowmobile Association inspected our trails and the reports that came back were very good to excellent. Thank you Trailmasters and our grooming people for your hard work and dedication.
The Club Officers and Board of Directors are as follows:
Lee Libby, President
Michael Koob, Vice President
Ashley Quimby, Treasurer
Gisele Nedeau, Secretary
Jon Lewis, Co-Trail Master
Christine Wargo, Co-Trail Master
Tuesday January 31 Trail report
Tuesday January 31 trial update
Good morning folks
Trails conditions have improved. We have been grooming every night and they are shaping up. We received 2-3 inch’s last night for some refresh and help flatten trails. We encourage everyone to ride midweek if possible for best trail riding. The heavy traffic on the weekends really take a toll on the trails. Please keep in mind that the trails need 8 hours to set up and hold. When sleds are following groomers all night they are making conditions for the next day horrible we know everyone want to get out and ride but if you let the tractors do there job everybody will benefit
Please aware that the bud Russell rd trail is closed for logging this winter r3 to r4 with shared access on the 108 connector (flat iron road) see below
One last thing we received numerous messages everyday. We won’t answer questions regarding trail conditions the latest reports are on our website and Facebook. Thanks
