Connecticut Valley Sno-Riders - President's Message

November 2021


President’s Message 

November 8th, 2021

The Connecticut Valley Sno-Riders maintain more than 68 miles of trails between Corridor 2 (the Pipeline) and Stone Dam at Highway 105 via Corridors 102, 102A, 1, 1A, 98, and F98. 

Last year we had a slow start, but had ended up having quite a bit of snow and plenty of riding over all of our trails.  

Covid presented many challenges last year.  More-so for business owners, but also for out-of-state riders.  I'm hoping that with regard to riding, gas, and lodging, things stay close to normal or improve during the season allowing full use of Vermont’s spectacular trail system.  During the season, I'd suggest keeping up with any state guidelines on the State of Vermont website.  Again this year, Bob & Carolyn have told us that “The Roost” will remain closed as a warming hut due to Covid.  Please respect their wishes and don’t enter the Roost.  

We are a very small club, and are always in need of new ‘active’ members that want to attend meetings, help out with the trail work, groom, and hold elected or appointed positions within the club.  If you are interested, please go to one of our meetings or give me a call.  If you like us on Facebook you’ll get updates of club activities, etc.  Even the smallest amount of help can aid us greatly.  We have been lucky in the past 2 years to have an influx of new active members but can always use more.  Including our trails, Vermont has over 5,500 miles of some of the best snowmobiling around.  Most trails are on private land, with the balance being on state, and federal lands.  These generous land owners, in cooperation with VAST, clubs like ours, and many tireless volunteers keep trails maintained, groomed, and ready to ride on.  Our Club members pride themselves on our trails and on signage being second to none in VT.  

Our club generally meets on the third Saturday each month at the Guild Hall, in Guildhall, VT.  They are over Zoom so anyone can attend.  If you wish to attend, please send me or the club (on Facebook) a message and we'll send you the joining information. Generally, they are an hour or less.

See you on the trail, 

John Orlowski
