Who We Are
We are residents of Jefferson and the surrounding towns who enjoy the pleasures of Maine winters which include snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. We currently have approximately 20 club members but less than 10 participating in our snowmobile club. New members are always welcomed and highly needed these days to help keep snowmobiling in Jefferson an activity.
Where We Ride
Locally we have over 45 miles of maintained trails in Jefferson ranging from Washington to Nobleboro and from Waldoboro to Whitefield. Maintenance on 35 of those miles is funded by the Department of Conservation via snowmobile registration fees. Our trails interconnect with those of neighboring clubs like the Damariscotta Lake Club club to the south, the Washington Hill and Gully club to the north, the Waldoboro Snowcrawlers to the east and WJW club to the west. We also take club trips up state and ride some fabulous MSA trails.
What We Do
Our members volunteer their time and effort to gain landowner permission, clear trails in preparation for the season and groom trails whenever there is sufficient snow. We have annual events which include a Radar Run, a Drag Race, our club trip, our Landowner’s Appreciation Lobster Dinner, regular club meetings, pot luck dinners and a fun filled Christmas gift auction at our December meeting.
We Support Our Community
Our goal is to respect landowner property and leave it as we found it or in better condition. We give back to our communities much of the proceeds from our fund raising raffles and Radar Run. Some funds go to equipment needed for trail maintenance and the rest goes back to the Jefferson Sports Association, the Jefferson Fire and Rescue Squad, the the Jefferson Area Foodbank and other local charitable causes.
When and Where We Meet
From September through April we meet on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM an the Damariscotta Lake Watershed Association office located across the street from the Damariscotta Lake Farm Restaurant on Circle Drive at the site of the old marina. We welcome cross country skiers and snowshoers to join our club and use the trails. If you enjoy using the trails, please join the club!
