Trail update for our Bernardston-Gill-Leyden Snowmobile Club community
With only an average of 6-7” on most of our trails and with just a couple passes it blows out instead of packing down throughout our trail system to protect personsl property, farmers requests and your machines ??… all trails are still closed.
We can only hope that the next few days creates some moisture to this base that then freezes up
Thank you all for your patience
“Rubber side Down”


Trail update

Here we go again... Hoping the snow is on the heavy side of the forecast!!
Either way...
We did our best to get everything ready but with limited voluneers and time there are loose ends and this storm will ring more issues.
We will keepou posted ASAP!! let us get out and break the trails and get it packed in before we open them!

Also remember to get your SAM trail pass!!!!

You can them here on this website, at the Steel shed, Hales Custom signs or from the club officers. Get them before you go out as the fines that can be enforced can add up fast!
BUT more importantly the club needs the funds to maintain bridges,signs, and groomers!!
It has been brutal getting the work done and trails ready with limited funds and volunteers hours.
Go do your best snow dance 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
