Fire Up Your Sleds!

Ride The Wind is a proposed snowmobile trail that would connect all of Maine’s wind power projects.

When completed, the trail would connect 10 wind farms and stretch roughly 590 miles across the state of Maine, from the Kibby Wind wind project in Franklin County to the Mars Hill wind project in Aroostook County.

mapSupporters of this proposed trail say creating this connection of snowmobile trails will benefit tourism, economic development and recreational opportunities along the proposed trail route.

This year, to showcase the beauty and excitement of snowmobiling alongside wind turbines, First Wind will again host a Ride The Wind snowmobile ride-in.

On Saturday, February 15, participants from all over Maine and New England will ride their sleds along a series of well-groomed trails and arrive at the Stetson Mountain Operations Center, near Danforth, Maine for a complimentary  lunch and more activities.
