Trail update

The core volunteers that already have countless hours this year invested in trail work, bridge repair and groomer maintenance are overwhelmed and need the help of all club members.
We are doing our best but we have life commitments too….. This isnt a one day storm cleanup and with the forecast of more wet heavy snow chances are what is done will need more work!!!
Our season is short enough but this year and as of right now it is a nightmare. As of now a clean ride on groomed trails that we are use to is not going to happen.
No need to ask which section as the answer is all of them!!! Your all being asked to go do what you safely can for the better good of the club!
Even if you dont use chainsaws hand trimmers can go along way to just getting a path thru until the saws can get there!!



GOOD- trails are open-ing
BAD- trails are opening
Low snow conditions with no packed base
(Picture below was taken yesterday in Gill)
If you go ….its the standard first ride of the year requests
Bring trimming tools and a sense of humor
Ride SLOW… lets pack this in so we can groom!!
No where you are going!!
Dont guess!! There are a few changes out there that have been done to keep positive relationships with land owners!!
Some gates are still closed
And of course… Rubber side down
More info as I receive it will be posted

RIDE SAFE my friends and Keep the Rubber Side Down!

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.
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
