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.

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 can’t see what’s 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. It’ s always a good idea to be prepared for “just in case!”

UPDATE FOR AIRLINE RIDERS SNOWMOBILE CLUB --- November 13, 2021

It may be 60 degrees out, but winter is coming soon !
The first full meeting of the club will be held on Nov. 13, at the groomer shed just off Rte 9 by the ranger station. Starting at 6 pm. Feel free to wear a mask if it makes you more comfortable.
Pete will be discussing route changes as per AFM and scheduling a bridge rebuild that will involve closing one of the trails for about a week and detouring traffic.
We will also be addressing the upcoming change in bridge widths that will take place in the spring.

Hope to see you there. Any questions please call Frank (the president 454-8133) or Pete (co-trail master 460-4474.

Remember to stay off the fields, no matter how good it looks for a short-cut. The blueberry plants are easy to ruin, and if that happens, the blueberry companies WILL shut off the trails.

New club member Mark Dennison has passed the state groomer certification course and will be learning the ropes this winter. Welcome Mark and Callie Dennison!

If you go out riding, feel free to drop a note to let the trailmaster know what conditions you find and if certain areas need more attention.

Always let someone know where you are going and when you expect to be back. Carry extra clothing, first aid, fuel and food in case you get stuck.

Ride safely, don’t become a statistic on the news.
