Many of the local businesses/West Dover Town are asking that you DO NOT ride to the establishments until there is snow! Riding on grass and bare pavement through parking lots will only make the landowners shut the trails down for the season. The owners of Layla’s and The Valley View Saloon specifically request that riders DO NOT RIDE TO THEM until we get some snow. There is no snow and sleds will damage the properties.
Trails are reported very thin. Barely any snow on Boyd Farm Hill. The Valley Trail and trails towards Chimney Hill have many brown/bare spots. There isn’t much snow to groom!
Do the snow dance PLEASE!
The valley received 5 inches of snow and groomers went out Wed night. DVSJ trails are opened and please ride with caution. It’s rough out there, so please report any trail experiences to our FB page.
Stay tuned for our updates especially if we get more snow.
Our trails took a big hit and are closed until we get further snow coverage. The VAST interactive map will be updated as soon as possible.
Groomers will not be out until our volunteers can assess the snow coverage, and check out the washouts. Stay tuned as the weather reports say cold temps and snow is on the way.
Rider reports came in for Monday and Tuesday’s trail conditions – best riding evah!!!! One rider reported the Wardsboro 710 trail was outstanding and road to the Wardsboro General Store for a sandwich and back to home town!
GROOMERS ARE OUT THIS WEEK- Wednesday, Chimney Hill and Somerset. Thursday Hogback and Downtown trail.
Friday and Saturday reporting will be based on weather conditions! – Fog, rain and warmer temperatures 🙁
With impending rain/ice, we will determine times based on the outcome of the snow conditions on the trails.
Hoping that the wintry mix with low temps for Saturday should make for a good trail grooming. Keep your fingers crossed.
ASAP – We will update the Blessing of the Sleds event – just waiting to see what mother nature will do.
For the safety of our groomer operators, they were kept home Sat. night due to this deep freeze and -35 wind chill conditions, similar to our neighboring clubs.
Not many riders out yesterday but some reported deep snow drifts and getting stuck in the -7 degree temps!. Be safe out there and buddy-up in case of deep snow drifts and any blow downs you might come across. Watch for the updates in our grooming schedule.
Let’s all work together – so if there are any riders out there today – please report your trail condition findings on our Face book page!
Looking forward to next weekend and Saturday’s blessing of the sleds. More details to follow weather permitting.
The last snow storm left 10 inches of white fluffy stuff! Trails seem in great condition especially with these frigid temps! Bundle up – the wind chill factor is reaching the negative numbers and there hasn’t been much riding out there. Ride warm – Ride Safe. Sunday should be a warmer day! Will update as soon as we can coax those piston bully’s out of the barn. They just want to stay cozy warm tonight!
Our fab groomers were out yesterday and last night in the frigid temps -9! to Hogback and Chimney Hill, and north last night! The trails are setting up really nice – with the cold weather!
RIDE ON! —–AND keep warm
Hi sledders. Santa was good to us – the trails are opened. Ride with care and be safe out there. Our groomers are out doing what they can……. so keep your eyes opened and remember its early conditions. Anyone out there riding please post our FB page so we can get “instant” trail reports. We are all anxious to ride!
FYI: Woodford started grooming again today too. Our neighboring club Wardsboro Pathfinders is still reporting 710 closed but they are out grooming, and fixing, and moving the blow downs. EZ Riders reopened today and are reporting the same that they are out grooming and ride with care due to early conditions.
The trail master reports that the groomer will head north tonight. Wow what a guy! This is Christmas night and all stay home with their families enjoying the festivities – and our fab groomer is going out tonight !! Awesome – and with all this wind and cold?….. As of 8:00 p.m. the Vermont temp is 14-16 degrees and winds at 20 mph! Chimney Hill is planned for tomorrow and Hogback on Wednesday. Stay tuned for updated conditions.
