Trail Report March 19, 2018

I was out and groomed our trails again Sunday. They are the best that I have seen all season. Good flat and hard thanks to the cold temps. There are no water areas open at this time. Every one that I saw out there were very happy. It took us over 38 hours to get the trails back to where we want them, but we got it done.

I also started clearing the snow off the Clemit Shelter Roof. Then Howie Bott and Al stopped and asked it I wanted help. I said sure and showed him where the other shovel was and he climbed up and started shoveling. Then Dan Roma and Dan Black stopped and gave me a break and a little more than an hour it was cleared! When you see the photos you will see how much snow was on the roof. It had to be 3 feet deep! I want to really thank them for helping me with that project! read more

Trail Report March 17, 2018

I was out packing yesterday all of our trails. Dave and I will be back out this morning with the drag to smooth the trails out. Off to the sides of the trails the snow is really deep but on the trail itself it has packed down to a lot slimmer snow pack amount. Right now all the trails look really good.

Here are some photos from Thursday night and Friday. The photo of the bridge on the Tin Shanty Road shows some one went off the bridge, not with a sled but a person was down in the brook area. Every one please be carefull! read more

I was out packing the upper trails around the Stone House area and the 2 trails that go to the parking lot – groomer shed area. Sorry to the 2 riders that could not get up the trail yesterday because of the deep snow! I’m headed out now to do the rest of the trails today.  Then tomorrow I plan on trying to groom them.

We received 8″ at our shop on Post Rd in Rutland Town. Let us know what you have! We will be out packing the trails as soon as possible, but for you powder riders go out and enjoy. The more you pack them the easier for us in the Tucker, not in one groove only though. As many tracks wide as possible.

Little Ascutney is having a cook out!

I was asked to post this, maybe some of you can go!

Trail Report March 13, 2018

Dad and I were out last night repairing the bigger mud spot on the trail going down to the groomer shed. We cut some trees and put some boughs down and then some snow on top and packed it with the drag. some one went in it this weekend and gassed it and ended up in the trees a ways away. From what I hear she is ok and the sled drove out but from what I saw and the distance she went it was an operator error incident. But we did the best we could to make it better. I was going to do it last weekend when I was grooming but there is only so many hours in the day and at midnight or closer to 3:00 AM on Friday night I did not feel like stopping to do it . Here are some photos I took last night and last weekend. read more

Well once again Dad was there to help me swap the compactor bar for the drag. We are getting pretty quick now. I went back out and groomed all of our trails yesterday. I was glad as from 3:45 that morning to when I was back on the trails at 12:00 noon that same day they looked really bad as the snow was not setting up. The drag does a lot better job but some times you just can not pull it with out tearing up the trail buy spinning it down to the ice which I did once each day and had to winch.  Every piece of equipment has its time and place where it works best. So after 25+ hours between Friday and Saturday we have the trails in good shape for the snow conditions that we have. read more
