Rain, fog, and temps reported 54-58 degrees!  The trails took a big hit with the pouring arctic-CATS and Ski-DOGS most of the day……….

but Mother nature is expected to turn cold again and we are doing the snow dance for the predictions next week.  Hopefully all the snowmobilers will wait for that snow before heading out on the trails.

VAST’S Official Snowmobile Season Opens – Sat. 12/16/17

December 11, 2017 at 5:13pm

Snowmobile clubs with enough snow will open soon. Check the VAST Website for the clubs that have opened their trails at
https://vtvast.org/trails.html.

This page shows the entire VAST trail system once you scroll toward the bottom which gives general conditions, and other trail information.  The right sided menu has filters for a  specific county or club so that  you can narrow the trail map to a specific section.  The map layers that you select will add onto the map items like  intersection numbers, route numbers, parking areas, etc., and you can also choose the layers to identify gas, restaurants, lodging, etc. for your ride.  VAST has done a fantastic job for a state wide map and this now allows clubs to post up to date information about trail conditions, closures, and any other specific information.  So get your self familiar with this interactive VAST Map!

SNOWMOBILERS!!! -On Tuesday Deerfield Valley received 10-15 iches of fluffy light snow but not enough to pack down. The wind of course means lots of blow downs which makes the trails impassable. The club will be going out in the weeks ahead to clear the trails (we had to stay out of the woods this past month due to hunting season).

We need additional snow to get the groomers out to track pack. We will post more information as we can and appreciate all the enthusiasm and excitment to get out on the trails but safety is always the first! Stay tuned for the trail updates

DVSJ Christmas Party Update

At the DVSJ Snowmobile Club November meeting, the board voted to have the annual Christmas Party BUT unfortnuately we have to postpone the event due to logistics and the costs.  DVSJ remains committed to our members and most importantly our valued landowners.

In place of the annual Christmas Party the board voted to hold an event after the New Year to kick off the snowmobile season with hopes to get more members in attendance.

We apologize to those that were looking foward to the annual Christmas Party, and hopefully this new idea will make it up to you!

As always – thank you for your continued support of DVSJ Snowmobile Club!
