Camden Snow Bowl Trail Fest
The Camden Snow Bowl will host the NOW EPIC!, second annual, Camden Snow Bowl Trail Fest on Friday and Saturday, September 29th & 30th. Presented by Baxter Outdoors, Trail Runners of Midcoast Maine, and Midcoast Maine New England Mountain Bike Association, along with many collaborators, this event is NOT TO BE MISSED!!!
The all day event is race day, Saturday, September 30th. The Camden Snow Bowl, rising over 1,000 feet above sea-level will host Baxter Outdoors’ 8th trail running and 2nd and final duathlon event in the New England Trail Series season.
Racers can bike, run, or both, and team registrations are welcome. The 5K run climbs one side of Ragged Mountain, rewarding the runner with spectacular views from the top of the triple chair, before winding down the Red Line Trail to return to the lodge. The 10K bike will climb the same Kuller Trail, but diverge off onto the single-track of Ragged Mountain before dropping down the G5 Connector and looping around the fabulous Goose River Trails. There will also be a 3K run option for those wanting to experience trail running without the 1,000-foot climb. This event will take place rain or shine!
Race registration begins at 8:30am at the Camden Snow Bowl, with a shotgun start for the 5K run at 10am. Racers can also pre-register at www.baxteroutdoors.com.
Not a runner or a biker? Come for the Fest! Co-produced by the Trail Runners of Midcoast Maine and the Midcoast Maine New England Mountain Bike Association, this year's Fest is bigger and better!
New to 2017, is a Friday night event! Join The Maine Outdoor Film Festival as they set up their outdoor theater (weather permitting), and enjoy Maine-made films with an outdoor recreation theme. Once the films wrap, you can hop in your car and drive the short distance to our campground partner, Megunticook Campground by the Sea, for discounted camping rates and beautiful amenities.
Wake on Saturday, sip coffee by the ocean, then drive the 5.6 miles to the Camden Snow Bowl. After racing, or race spectating, a fun-filled late morning and afternoon awaits with post race yoga, food vendors, live music, gear tents, guided bike trail tours, bike demos, and more, before heading back to the Megunticook Campground by the Sea for a late afternoon Harvest Fest, complete with more music, food, games and fun late into the night!

Fat Bike New England?
That was it...thanks Stephen Couture
I'm looking at studs also. Can't find the post on that page though
Let me know if that takes you to Spiegs post.
There's guy on ebay that sells them also, I ordered some a couple days ago: www.ebay.com/itm/500-Bicycle-Tire-Studs-Aluminum-Body-Carbide-Tip-Insertion-Tool-/291636643540?va...
I used the one above on some Dillingers, worked great, FYI if your tires are not new, I spent almost as much time cleaning out the pockets as installing
Ted we haven't purchased the tires yet, still researching. I do know however i'm going to buy studdable and save a ton of money doing it myself. So I know you have dillingers what are others riding on?
You can buy studded fat bike tires starting at $100 each and not have to waste your time installing them

Has anyone been to the Nordic center in pressure isle? How does it compare to bond brook or carabassett valley? It's a long drive...if I'm gonna drive that long, I would rather go to kingdom trails than be disappointed...like great glen trails in NH...pretty much a waste of time in my opinion... ...

I have not been up there but I would head to VT. Tons of great riding, I actually have not been to Kingdom this year, so many other great places to explore. Millstone rocks, seriously.
Great trails up there. Quaggy Jo trail is one of the best descending trails...ever. If you do drive up, highly recommend also making time for Edmunston, NB trails. Best trail system in the east...better than CBV and Kingdom, IMO.
No passport, but sounds good!!! Ty!!
Dig that quaggy jo!
NHC has great trails! Go for the trail festival, great event!! Free camping.
In all seriousness, NHC trails are great. On the west side are long up and down flowy trails including quaggy joe and the West trail. On the east side are more lumpy hand built trails. There's a lot of up and down. Everything is very well marked. And maintained. (have heard there's a downhill course over at the next door downhill ski area but have not checked it out.)One could ride them all in a day.The County is very scenic and this is a great time of year to be there
Frankly bond can't touch the Nordic Heritage Center. Not on the same level as Carabassett. A total blast to ride there. Great mix of old school and flow. Worth the drive up if you have the time. I personally really enjoyed vacationland which is a super tech trail.
It's all ways interesting getting recommendations from people. One persons great can be someone else not not worth it.
NHC is totally a blast. Machine and handcut stuff. Edmundston is suppose to be great as well but is another hour past PI. Hopefully in the next few years one will have more options close to PI to make the trip for folks like y'all worth it for a weekend.
Is there not a place in fort Kent as well?
This is the festival up there, to consider for next summer: nordictrailfestival.com/
