Author Bio
Matt Weber grew up in Stillwater, Maine, and first got a taste for snowmobiles working with the snowmaking crew on the ski slopes of Sugarloaf. But Monhegan Island, a small island about twelve miles off the coast, called him instead and he became a commercial fisherman on an island where snowmobiles aren’t even allowed. He and his family also started a brewing business, and own both the Monhegan Brewing Company and Lake St. George Brewing Company. In 2013, he grabbed at a chance to start snowmobiling again, and hasn’t looked back since.
