One of DVSJ directors road 190 miles today, starting from Chimney Hill – the sand pit area was like a super highway – groomed baby-A smooth!! C7_100 North was outstanding and road toward Belmont. Griffith Lake was the best in a long time. There was some logging along the way which wasn’t groomed but there was a lot of snow on those logging trails. Went to the Squealing Pig Ludlow General Store.

It was a great ride to the Ez Riders Snow Fest and this event was outstanding!
DVSJ Club ride to Ez Rider’s Snow Fest was a great day! Good food, fun chatting with all the snowmobilers who showed up, and also watching the snocross jumping. Wow! We had 24 Sleds for our ride!
Left the Snow Fest and rode to the Mass. stateline; Deerfield River Trail 9N to 7N Woodford – to Somerset Dam – and all gathered at the RoadHouse for a cold one! Hat’s off to one of our club members “Ro” (Rosanna) – a “new” snowmobiler who clocked 98 miles on her third day of riding her own sled!!! You Go Girl!!

GREAT NEWS – DVSJ Trails are “good out there”. Two of our board members reported they rode Wed. afternoon from the groomer barn north and found trails good to the Hathway Trail. They headed north to Sommerset Dam and Woodford’s 7N. They found DVSJ trails to be very good!! Some water bars were encountered along the way.
DVSJ Trails are opened. This ‘noreaster’ storm brought 6+ inches of snow and groomers went north. South and west trails not yet done
The Deerfield Valley area received 4-6 inches of wet snow Tues-Wed., with another 1 inch expected. Our groomers are out checking the trails now and doubt they can even be track packed because of the wet snow just rolling up!.
Stay tuned for any updates.
