This is the report on the results of the Snowmobile Trail Grooming Funding Survey that was undertaken in the winter and spring of 2011 by Dr. Stephen Reiling of the University of Maine Orono in conjunction with the MSA Trails Committee. The study was funded as part of the MSA Trails Committee contract with the Department of Conservation this past season. There was a great response from clubs and municipal projects across the state, and the results are interesting reading - see what folks think here:Click here to view the report.

THE REPORT ON THE INTERNAL REVIEW OF THE SNOWMOBILE PROGRAM by Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry Commissioner Walt Whitcomb, was presented to the Legislature's ACF Committee. This study was initiated as a result of legislation introduced by the MSA. We believe that the report and recommendations will help increase transparency and equity within the program and help clubs statewide as we move forward. View the report.
