As winter slowly winds down in Maine, giving way to mud season, it can be a challenge to plan outdoor adventures. Throughout the state, snow depth can vary drastically from the coast to inland mountains, dictating whether you can ski, snowmobile, snowshoe, ice skate, bike or hike on solid ground.
One tool that may help you plan outings during this time of year is the online snow depth map updated daily by the National Weather Service at weather.gov/nerfc/snow. The map shows how deep the snow cover is throughout the state, which can help you decide what outdoor activities are possible at different outdoor destinations.
