About Bridgewater Mountain Snowmobile Club

Bridgewater Mountain Snowmobile Club (BMSC) consists of 50 miles of trails in the Newfound Lakes region that travel through the beautiful Bridgewater NH mountains in the towns of Bridgewater, Ashland, Bristol, and Plymouth. The trails provide access to Ashland to the east (via Corridor 24), Newfound Lake to the south, and to the north-east, Plymouth and the railroad tracks leading north and south (Corridor 8). We pride ourselves on the quality and consistency of trail maintenance and grooming as well as frequent updates of current weather and trail conditions. We will display those real-time weather reports, photos, videos, and trail conditions on this site and our Facebook page.

The trail system offers several restaurants in Bridgewater, a convenience store and gas station as well as a full service snowmobile dealer. To the north in Plymouth and Rumney you'll find more restaurants and fuel and to the east in Ashland you'll also find restaurants and fuel.

Our trail system connects to other great local clubs; Hardy Country SC to the north following Corridor 24 to the western side of Newfound Lake into Hebron, Rumney and Dorchester Woods. Squam Trail Busters SC picks up on the east side of the Squam River following Corridor 8 to the east.

Thank you for visiting our site and we welcome you to join our club and ride our trails. We'll see you out in the mountains!

Bridgewater News and Announcements

Announcement!  Club Meeting!!!

BMSC first meeting of the season is Thursday night, October 3, 2019 at 7pm at The Homestead Restaurant in Bristol.  We have much to discuss in preparation for the upcoming season.  Hope to see you there!

Time to Get This Party Started!

Personally, I've been thinking about sleds for the past 30 days.  Got the sleds to the shop for some pre-season service and organized the trailer.

The club has been working all summer...we've been cutting back brush and the groomer was in for some service and it just came back to the garage.

It's not too early to renew your club membership with BMSC.  We're starting to see a few trickle in which helps with the expenses the club is already incurring; groomer maintenance, fuel for the equipment to cut back trees, and so on.  We appreciate early membership renewals as it gives the club the spark to keep pushing early season and things ready for the riders.

We'll have a work detail or two coming up soon, so stay tuned!

BMSC Closing for the 2018-2019Season

It's sad and bittersweet, but we are officially closed. We've held onto snow up top, but down low there are many locations where the ground is showing and we've got to preserve and protect the landowners' property. We'll see 60 degrees this coming Saturday. Time to pull the plug, officially. Don't forget, there is still riding to be had in Coos County though.

But, we had a WONDERFUL season overall and we are so very appreciative of the local landowners that allow us access to the beautiful countryside in the Newfound Lakes region. We had an impressive group of new and returning riders that supported BMSC with their membership dollars by joining and renewing their "dues" with the club...for that we are flattered and grateful. With great effort and cooperation a new trail was built to the Homestead Restaurant. Many hands made that happen and we could not be more pleased with the result. We used up all of our grooming hours and then some. Our grooming equipment performed very well all season because our team maintains the hell out of that machine. We tested two new brands of groomers and we've conclusively decided on a machine, and now it's up to the universe to align for it actually happen...more on that some other time. And our board and regular volunteers have never been stronger; perhaps there are some new faces that will begin to make valuable contributions to team BMSC next season and we look forward to that.

Overall, we had a kick-ass season and we truly hope you got to experience the local trails at their best. Every year this organization tries it very best, with volunteers mind-you, to bring you the best possible grooming, communication of conditions, and overall experience you and your family might have on the trails. We know we're a small club, but our area is a critical access area that brings access to the lake, gas, a snowmobile dealer, restaurants, and access points to the south, north, east and west. Thank you everyone and we'll look to continue to earn your support next season with more of the same. Thank you for a kick-ass 2018-2019 season. Ride on!

Where to Park?

Newfound Grocery has ample parking...parking lot just south of the Bridgewater Power Plant...junction of Dick Brown Road and Poole Hill Road...maybe a truck or two at the Big Catch on the southern most point of Newfound Lake. 
At this point, Newfound Grocery has the biggest lot, has fuel and groceries, right next to Bridgewater Inn & Restaurant, and Outdoor Performance (Ski Doo Dealer) is right there too.  Can't go wrong!

Super Important Note:

We don't own the trails.  We don't have exclusive rights to use the trails.  If you see someone outside enjoying the trails on snowshoes, cross-country skis, mushing with their dogs, just know this...they are outside enjoying the trails just like you.  Be cautious, slow down, smile and wave.  If you happen to tell them to get off the trails or out of your way, just remember, there's a damn good chance you're yelling at the landowner.  That landowner has EXCLUSIVE rights to his/her land.  So if that happens again, like it did this week, you just might get the trail closed for good.  YOU'RE A GUEST, TREAT ALL TRAILS THAT WAY.  Smile, wave, and say thank you.  Carry on!

We're Riding this Weekend...Are You?

Many of you will arrive at local sled registration agents without a "VOUCHER NUMBER".  Do yourself and the registration agents a favor and sign up for Bridgewater Mountain Snowmobile Club online at home, on your own computer.  It will be MUCH EASIER.  You have a few days to get it done.   See the link below and the prior story with the video instructions on how to do this...IT'S EASY!  Thanks for joining BMSC!
