Trail Closure Update 3/14/2020

Good Morning Everyone, Unfortunately it’s time to close our trails for the season. With the rain and warm temps the snow is melting fast. We had a better run this year than we have had in the past few, we have received comments about trail conditions and grooming , people have shared pictures, please keep it coming, we love to hear from you.

I would like to say thank you to all of our land owners, everyone that spent the time getting the trails ready, the signs made and put up, grooming, storm damage help, and the club members that come to the meetings to help! Only a few issues this year with people going places they shouldn’t have, or speed violations, but all in all it was a good year.

Everyone plays a role! Without landowners and volunteers we wouldn’t have trails. Everyone likes to go out and ride but there are countless hours of prep and work that start every summer, weather its talking to landowners, clearing trails, or maintaining our fleet of club vehicles and drags there is no shortage of work to do.

I would like to invite you to come to a meeting, get more involved with the club, attend one of our fund raisers, or join in on a work bee, we love to meet new people and work as a team to get things done. If you have any new ideas, or ways to improve our club or trails please feel free to let us know! Our meetings are the last Monday night of each month (excluding summer). Regular meeting reminders are posted on our Facebook page.

Things to look forward to next year are some new, wider bridges that will allow for the wide groomers to hit more trails, new trail status signs located at parking areas indicating open or closed, and the new Sled Ma trail map app, let me tell you, this new map app has done well in the trial/tests we have been doing, it will allow for turn by turn navigation just like in your car, real-time updates on closures, and grooming. The new map shows points of interest, gas stations, restaurants, and businesses along the way. If you have a local business and would like to sponsor an ad or be listed please reach out to us for options at bglsnowmobileclub@gmail.com, or message us on our Facebook page.

Thanks again for your hard work!

Jared Smith

President Bernardston-Gill-Leyden Snowmobile Club

Stay Alert and Pay Attention to Trail Changes!
Some of the major changes are after passing the Leyden fire pit and thru the quiet zone pass the old Bartons garage, which once was the Zimmerman property there has been a trail change.
ALSO headed from the hollywood or from over Fox hill going east towards the 91 bridge THAT QUIET ZONE MUST BE HONORED! We are literally 75 ft from a non-snowmobiling family's home.. GO SLOW!!! Once over the 91 bridge headed to North Bernardston as you enter West road there is another major trail change.
THE DEADLINE FOR EARLY BIRD SAM PASS PRICES IS DEC 15TH!
You can get SAM trail passes online here or Hale Custom Signs, The Steel Shed Inc and Ray's Cycle Center

We are always looking for bridge repair material. If you or someone you know have replaced a deck or any other pressure treated structure and the wood is in pretty good shape. Give me a shout.


Imagine, you wake up and look out the window, the forecast was right, a foot of snow fell last night...finally! You grab your gear, the sled is already in the trailer, you fire up the truck and put it into drive, its time to go. You get to the trail and meet with the others who share the same enthusiasm about riding as you do. This day couldn't be any better. You do a brief check of supplies, you're gonna need em... because today you'll ride until the sun goes down.


*NOTE* trail changes will be posted in our Trail Conditions and on our Facebook page: Bernardston Gill Leyden Snowmobile Club
