OK Snowmobilers!  Start your engines. Our FAB groomer is out DRAGGING  and heading to Sommerset – says “trails are coming out pretty nice”.   The Higher elevations in the DVSJ area got about 10 inches and lower maybe 5-6 inches, but with a lot of sleet throughout last night.  Ride with care.

Our neighbor EZ Rider’s trails are closed.  Wardsboro trails have been closed  as of 3/21 with no update.  As of 3/31 Woodford Snobusters are saying their trails are opened.   Snow conditions are wet and heavy BUT GROOMERS most likely will not run.

Look for updates as we get any reports from our members who will ride today.

YES SNOWMOBILERS’.  This isn’t an April fool’s joke.  We hope the great snow continues as predicted through to Sat. 5 p.m.!!

If we get over 12″ of snow the groomer will be out track packing early Sat. morning.  The higher elevations are getting more snow. Some have reported as of 6:00 p.m. Friday, the lower areas near the Sitzmark have about 4 inches of snow.  The trail from C7-100 Kiosk heading North to Sommerset has about 6-8″.  So keep the fingers crossed.

Sat. 3/25/17 Trails are closed

Believe it snowmobilers.  Our fab groomers worked their magic from the Sitzmark to Somerset last night and it’s actually pretty decent.   They tried to groom to Hogback and the conditions had a lot of bare spots and exposed rocks.  To access the North trail Chimney Hill is rideable but very thin.  The Windy Hill trail is not rideable.  Ride with caution as trails depend on the weather in the next few days.

Hope all you snowmobilers got out to ride this past weekend.  It was beautiful and great!  The groomers did an outstanding job.  Late Sat. afternoon the trails were well on the way to a beaten path, but our groomers worked their magic to get the trails back in descent shape by Sunday.

Currently the trails are getting thin but the temps are predicted below freezing again in the next few days……. so stay tuned for any updates.

Get out and enjoy the trails while you can.

3/17/17 – Happy St. Patrick’s Day –

Stella Snow storm gave us 21-24 inches of snow – enough to ride! The groomers went out on Wed-Thurs., track packing and moving a lot of downed trees. It was a slow go because of drifts and the downed trees….. The plan is to groom Thurs. night, Fri. night. Haven’t heard about any bad spots in the trails……. only good things like “sweet out there”. RIDE!

JUST IN – One of DVSJ club members road north to Somerset taking the Hathaway trail to C7-100.

While the trails were thin and very soft – it was pretty flat and not a bad ride considering the warm conditions (50!!) :o(….Obviously the trails will get worse because of the predicted warmer temps and rain coming for the weekend.
