North Country Rivers base resort complex located in the upper Kennebec Valley Region of Maine, is renowned for having "the best snowmobiling in the east". This region receives an annual snowfall of over 10-feet! The region also contains some of the most beautiful and pristine wilderness in the United States.
Our resort base complex is located right on Maine's Interconnecting Trail System (the ITS). This system is comprised of approximately 13,000 miles of groomed trails; stretching to all the way to Canada. The North Country Rivers base complex in Bingham, Maine, is on the ITS 87 portion of this trail system. Our location, and being in proximity to this portion of the ITS, allows us to ride north to the Forks and Jackman (and into Canada), west to the Rangeley Lakes region, and even northeast to the Moosehead Lake region (and even Baxter State Park). This trail, and the many feeder trails, simply offer hundreds and hundreds of miles of open terrain, incredible scenery, unlimited trip potential, and awesome riding for all skill levels.
2 nights cabin lodging and 1 full-day snowmobile rental (1 person snowmobile) is $341 per person, including all taxes and fees. Add $30 for snowsuit rentals (bibs, jacket, boots, gloves).
North Country Rivers rents Ski-Doo 600 4-stroke snowmobiles, they are quiet, have no emissions and get 30 miles to the gallon.
•Snowmobiles come with heated hand warmers, electric start and reverse.
•Helmets, trail maps, and a full tank of gas are included with the snowmobile rental.
•Sleds must be returned with a full tank of gas.
•Top of the line apparel can be rented for $30 per person per day (bibs, jacket, boots, and gloves), all sizes available.
•A $30 per hour fee will be charged for late returns
•$1,000 deposit per sled is required for rentals. We will hold the deposit on any major credit card. Also, everyone renting a snowmobile must understand and sign a release form as well as a snowmobile rental contract. All renters are responsible for any damage done to a sled.
I would like to get at least 8-10 people to go but more are welcome since there are bigger cabins. I have to book this soon so only sign up if you are serious since they require a 50% deposit for the entire reservation, with the balance due 45 days before the trip date.
