The Benedicta Snow Gang would like to welcome you to our website and invite you to browse around. We would also like to extend an invitation to all snowmobilers to come and enjoy our trails and the easy access to much of the premier riding we have to offer. The site is constantly being updating, and we will be adding items as the snow season goes on.
Located in the southwestern part of Maine's Aroostook County, Benedicta was named after the Catholic Bishop Benedict Fenwick, who purchased the township from Massachusetts in 1834, hoping to found a Catholic colony, which was originally intended to include a college.

The Benedicta Snow Gang has been in existence for over 20 years, Jim Splan our Club president, was instrumental in having the club come together. We've been very active for a town of about 225 people. We were told that a snowmobile club would never make it in a town our size. We currently have grooming equipment worth over $250,000, have miles of trails that we groom, maintain and 8 or 9 bridges that have to be kept up.
We have a Cruise Raffle every year, and sell 100 tickets at $50 per, one winner, they get to choose a 7 day Caribbean cruise or take $5000 in cash. In the past, we ran the largest poker run in the state, with over $5000 in donated prizes.
The volunteerism is simply tremendous.
