This fun winter event celebrates the snowmobile. Watch exciting races across the lake and enjoy snowmobile displays, kid’s events, a snowmobile parade and fireworks. Try out a snowmobile ride or take a new ski plane scenic flight (or helicopter ride) to see the action from up high. This is also Snowmobile Reciprocity Weekend between Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont in which anyone with a sled registered in any of the three states can ride in all three states. Early registration is advised for rides.
Come to the “Jewel of the Maine Coast” for this exciting event and winter weekend getaway. Most of the 400-plus sledders who take part in the U.S. National Toboggan Championships will aim for the fastest time in their category. But some teams, like the trio who dress as the three little pigs each year, will be more interested in having a good time with friends. Two, three and four-person teams dressed in business suits, cow suits, clown suits and other creative costumes make watching the competition on the iced, wooden Jack Williams Toboggan Chute at Camden Snow Bowl all the more fun. Nearby, you’ll find The Center for Maine Contemporary Art. The Farnsworth Art Museum and Wyeth Center are due south in Rockland.
