About 6" of additional snow has fallen at Chimney Pond since Thursday morning.  Strong winds are now drifting the snow.  The Park Tote Road is fair for skiing and tow sleds and snowmobile traffic is expected to begin this weekend.  Woodland trails will be mostly good, but may still have bare or icy spots.  Snow depths are currently not sufficient for ski travel or sleds on the Chimney Pond Trail.  There is 30" of snow on the ground at Chimney Pond (2914' elevation)  For more details on current trail conditions and access status, campers are advised to call our hiker information line at 207-723- 4636 or Park Headquarters at 207-723-5140.

Opening Day for 2012 camping reservations is set for Tuesday, January 17.  We expect to open the doors to Headquarters between 6:30 and 7:00am as Monday night promises to be a cold one.  We are looking forward to seeing long-time campers and new visitors alike as we start the reservation process.
