Welcome to the Airline Riders Snowmobile Club website.

We are located near Rt 9 in the Beddington area, and meet every second Saturday of the month at the town office building on Rte 193 at 6 pm. Everyone is welcome. The club was started way back in 1987 and had a few slow years before getting back in action after the purchase of the Airline Snackbar by Frank and Maryann Janusz. Newer grooming equipment was acquired and several members took part in the official state groomer operator licensing program.

Snow has been a little scarce so far, but we are hoping for more as the season progresses. Our trails are not really ready yet for riding, only a few small areas had enough to ride on last week, and with the recent rain (again) they wonít be trail worthy.

There were quite a few trees down in the trails but we think we got them all out. Remember to use caution going around corners where you canít see whatís ahead, and always remember not to drink and drive and maintain a safe speed. Better to see the scenery than become part of it! Always make sure someone knows where you are planning on going and your expected return time in case you run into trouble. Use caution when approaching wildlife, and DO NOT HARASS them. The wardens take a dim view of that and it can be dangerous as well.

New members receive a map of trails put together by local clubs and the information is as up to date as they can make it. You also receive membership in the state wide MSA, Maine Snowmobile Association, they have a wealth of information on their website. AFM, the property owner for most of our trails, frequently has active logging in the woods, so please watch for signs and stay on marked trails. If you come upon equipment working, remember they always have the right of way, and make sure the operator sees you before you attempt to pass by.

For trail information, you can call Pete at 460-4474, Frank at 454-813 or Maryann at 546-1178. Pete's email is poorsway@gmail.com. Stop by if you can for a meeting. We'll be happy to see you.

Ride safely and be considerate of others. Be sure to dress for the weather, and bring extra essentials like warm clothing, snacks and gas. Ití s always a good idea to be prepared for ďjust in case!Ē

Update
Jan 7, 2020

THERE WILL BE NO MEETING OF THE SNOWMOBILE CLUB ON JANUARY 11, 2020. ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL FRANK 454-8133 OR PETE 460-4474.

Obviously no riding yet unless you put pontoons on your sled. Trail work has been slowed even a bit more...Pete had a LARGE tree limb fall on him and has a broken arm. He is doing the best he can, and has been trying to get the Tucker 2000 repaired in case we have snow! Itís slow going, and grooming will probably take him a little longer. David has had to pretty much retire from the field for now, but he will also keep doing what he can. Frank is also certified to groom of course, but is experiencing some health issues on and off. Jimmy has volunteered to groom the re-opened loop trail and whatever else he can with the sled and drags. Welcome back to action, we missed you !
If you know anyone who would be interested in more information about becoming a groomer, please contact either Frank or Pete.


The MSA has information on trails state wide, a good source to check before you head out. Be sure to prepare for the weather and for unplanned events, extra clothes, water, food, and gas.

Watch your speed and be considerate of other riders. Stay to the right.

Meetings start at 6 pm on second Saturdays in season.

The parking lot at the Forestry Station has been plowed for snowmobile parking. Please be courteous and leave room for others.

Frank: 454-8133
Pete: 460-4474

Please remember to stay off the blueberry fields! There is no faster way to lose trails than to damage land owner property. Stay on the marked or groomed trails.
