Cross Country Skiing in Maine with AMC ~ possible moose sightings

Today, a high school group from Dover-Sherborn in Massachusetts arrived in Greenville, Maine to stay at our motel, Indian Hill Motel. This is an enthusiastic group of kids, eager to experience the Maine outdoors and are excited to head into the Appalachian Mountain Club land to enjoy a weekend of cross country skiing and most have said to hopefully see a Maine moose.
The students and 4 trip leaders arrived at 2 and spent the afternoon enjoying the Moosehead Lake Region by ice fishing and cross country skiing in to Lily Bay State Park. After sucking back tons of hot cocoa and warming up in the lobby of the motel, they headed to Flatlanders Pub for dinner to then return to the motel for a meet and greet with the AMC cross country ski leaders taking them from hut to hut for a weekend in the woods.
The AMC offers you to experience lodge-to-lodge skiing in the Maine Woods. All you need to do is travel light and you can reserve a private cabin with wood stove, hot shower or sauna, and home-cooked dinner waiting for you at day's end. The AMC ski trail network is groomed (without set tracks) - intermediate skills and comfort with skiing backcountry are required. You can stay at Indian Hill Motel upon arrival in Greenville the day before your excursion into the AMC woods and plan to stay with us when you head south on your departure day.
Our guests, including this outdoorsy group, have found this arrangement to be very convenient and accommodating as a pre-trip or stayover plan.
We hope that Dover-Sherborn visits Greenville, Maine, Indian Hill Motel and the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) year after year for a great way to explore the beauty this area offers year round and for today's purpose, the winter and cross country skiing in Maine.

Maine Moose "Snow" Tracks!

As we were traveling last week with Northeast Guide Service to the Springfield RV, Camping & Outdoor Show in Springfield, MA, we were surprised with the 50 degree weather and it was hard not to 'think Spring!" Today, however, with the talk of the town saying anywhere from 4 to 14 inches of snow is on its way, we are thinking winter and all of its fun activities once again!
This year, Greenville, ME and the Moosehead Lake Region has been lacking in its 'winter' department. However, unlike the rest of New England, we at least have snow! And since the temperatures here do not read Spring, we will take it! The trails are groomed and ready to go for any adventure/outdoor enthusiasts.
Although the mild winter has been anything but a good thing for snow fans, our regular visitors during our Moose Watching Tours are more than likely happy for this.
When we have a season that the snow piles foot after foot, our Maine Moose are not able to move around as much and even struggle to get through the thick of it. They of course have seen many Maine winters as their sheds say, but I bet if you were to ask one of them, they would opt for a mild, less snowy winter..."just easier to get around" they would probably say!

I've seen a lot of tracks in the snow and have seen plenty of moose this winter which leads me to believe that we will have an amazing Spring for Maine Moose watching tours! We are already booking morning and evening tours so call Northeast Guide Service and reserve yours! Don't miss the Moose! :)
