Yes, the Town of Inlet/Webb Snowmobiles officially opened Monday, December 8, 2014.
The Inlet groomers were out yesterday (Dec. 12). They groomed from The Ole Barn to Eagle Bay and even dumped some snow on the hill along Route 28. This section of trail has no base and is mealy, as it is every year. The inner loop behind the Transfer Station was groomed and so was between the Fire Hall and Deer Meadows. There is not enough base for the groomer to make the trip out to Drake’s yet, nor is there enough for the FX Matt trail to Red Dog Tavern.
The groomer did a trip to Eagle Bay this morning (Dec. 13) and then was stationed at the Fire Hall for the Snowmobile Safety Course.

Inlet is known for it’s small town atmosphere and friendly nature. To make browsing in downtown’s shops more enjoyable, the Economic Development Committee of the Inlet Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. came up with an idea in the spring of 2000 to place more benches around the community. The Town of Inlet continues this effort. The benches are an Adirondack style bench. They can be seen at ACE Hardware. To donate a bench to the town, fill out the form below and return it to the Information Office. Donations of $150 (as of May 15, 2014) will include a bench, plaque, and staining of the bench. The Information Office will work in conjunction with the Town of Inlet and area businesses to determine the locations for the benches. Your input will be taken into consideration. The Town will then take responsibility of storing the bench in the winter and bringing it back out before summer begins. The Parks Department will do their best maintaining the bench and plaque, however, you may be contacted if the bench or plaque needs to be replaced.
Download the application, print it out, fill it in and mail it to us to get your bench: Bench Application

Winter Update – March 19, 2014
Snowmobile trails are still in great shape, thanks to the Inlet Highway Department. Roads are rough, making the getting in between a little bumpy, but still some of the best riding all season out there.
Cross-country ski trails were all groomed after the last snow storm are holding up pretty nice.
Ice skating rink is still good and so is the sledding hill.
Read this report by Darrin of ilsnow.com of his ride yesterday through the Moose River Recreation Area: http://www.ilsnow.com/2014/03/18/snowmobile-trail-report-42/
Winter Update – January 16, 2014
What can I say? It is snowing! Ever so lightly, but still snowing! We have received about an inch of new snow over the last couple days and in some places this is the only snow on the ground.
The trails are marginal – which means little coverage, bare spots, and the groomers (both snowmobile & cross-country) are not out due to lack of snow to work with.
The ice skating rink has been closed, but we are hoping to be able to open it tomorrow (Friday).
Winter Update – January 11, 2014
Had to close the skating rink – it has about an inch of water on it
Yes, we are back to rain and warm temperatures, so there will be no grooming of trails for a while. Although it looks like it is getting colder, and they are forecasting snow for tomorrow
Hopefully the next post will be better!
Winter Update – January 8, 2014
Brr! It is cold! In the sun, my thermometer is showing 7 degrees above zero. It was just as cold, maybe colder, yesterday, but the groomers were out! We received about 6-8 inches of new snow in the last 24 hours. Yes, only inches.
Snowmobile trails are in fair to good condition. May be thin or icy in spots, but a ride today should be real nice!
Cross country trails at Fern Park were groomed yesterday. A report from the groomer reads: Fern Park groomed. A few wet spots – some rough spots under some of the pine trees. Overall real good. Talked to a guy by Ralph’s Run. He sais it was excellent out with the new snow!
Ice skating rink was able to open yesterday after being closed for a couple days and is now in excellent condition. And the sledding hill looks good!
