Winter Fun in Bangor, Maine

winter- Bangor, ME

Winter is coming. But don’t let that stop you from having fun in Bangor!

Maine has the perfect climate to have a flurry of winter adventures. The Greater Bangor Region is in an excellent location to explore winter activities.

A snow-covered forest is one of the most beautiful and peaceful views of winter. Spend time in the woods hiking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. There are specific trails that have been purposefully groomed or left ungroomed for the different winter trail needs.

For snowmobilers, there are miles of trails available and trailside accommodations. Don’t have your own snowmobile?  No problem! There are many rental locations. There are Maine Snowmobile Association recognized clubs within the region, and they would be happy to help you get on the trail.

Sledding can also be taken to a unique level in Bangor. Have you ever wanted to try sledding behind a team of dogs? You can do so at Hermon Mountain!  In addition to providing dog-sledding opportunities, Hermon Mountain also has snow tubing and downhill skiing.  A lift will take you to the top of the mountain where you will find over 600 feet of snow-tube chutes for riders. There is something for everyone at Hermon Mountain.

Winter fun is a key staple of living in Bangor, Maine. Varney Buick GMC wants you and your families to enjoy all the amazing winter opportunities available.

Be sure to bundle up and stay safe!

A New Buick? Get Ready for the Chinese-made Buick Envision SUV


Buick, which has reinvented itself over recent years—introducing the rebadged Opel Cascada and its first convertible in decades—is stretching its vision for its lineup even further. Squeezing in a new sedan between the Encore and Enclave, the Chinese-made Buick Envision SUV will be arriving on American soil next summer.

While the automaker predicts most of the model will be purchased by Chinese drivers in the Eastern market, some units will be available for purchase in the United States. The Envision will be part of a joint GM-China venture and will be constructed in Yantai.

If you’re concerned that “made in China” means cheap, bare-minimum production standards, there’s no need to fret. Buick affirms that the Envision will meet all its high safety standards that make the brand as respected as it is.

Plus, the Envision was designed in Michigan, so it’s certain to appeal to American car buyers. The only reason it’s being constructed overseas and imported is purely logistics. When it arrives, be sure to check back with Varney Buick GMC for more information.
