Connecticut Valley Sno-Riders - President's Message

November 2020


President’s Message 

The Connecticut Valley Sno-Riders maintain approximately 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 quite a bit of snow and plenty of riding over all of our trails.  Many storms and cold weather kept the trails in generally great condition during the year.

This year, being 2020, has been absolutely crazy.  It’s Thanksgiving week already.  Most folks are wondering what impact Covid 19 will have on sledding during the 2020-2021 season.  Hopefully minimal.  From a grooming point of view, we have a new groomer (and drag soon) for the season and will be providing you with the best trails we can create. What we don’t know is how state guidelines on Covid will effect everyone in the coming months, and of course we need mother nature to cooperate with lots of snow.  We suggest looking to the state of Vermont information sites for the latest guidelines on Covid-19.

Additionally this year, Bob & Carolyn have told us that “The Roost” will be 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.

Including our trails, Vermont has over 5,500 miles of some of the best snowmobiling around.  Most 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.  We have them on Saturday so that snowmobilers that aren’t local to the area can attend meetings.  This year they have all been on-line making it easier for non-local folks to attend - Please attend a meeting if you can.  Generally, they are an hour or less.

See you on the trail, 

John Orlowski
