Acadia Winter Trails Association 2021 End of Season Update
After two very warm winters, the community rejoiced when a decent snowpack and cold temperatures set in for the month of February. Groomers did a phenomenal job maintaining classic and skate skiing conditions almost daily, as well as grooming the entire network of designated carriage roads including Upper Around Mountain and Jordan Pond Connector. For the time ever, a portion of the bike paths at the Schoodic district were groomed for skiing and snowshoeing!
Friends of Acadia, park staff, and volunteers have been building the program expansion to Schoodic for the last four years. Special thanks to volunteer Brett Binns and Acadia National Park Ranger Chris Wiebusch for their work on Schoodic, and to Jeff Roseberry and Mark Fernald for work on Mount Dessert Island.
