Yes one more trail report April 19, 2018!

The gate on the CCC Road that Mike S just locked on April 18, 2018!

Mike Stewart was out with his sled closing gates that we can not get to with vehicles. He said that there was still good snow coverage. Some trails he could not get through because of downed trees. I think that there is going to be alot of that to clean up. Mike said he had a nice ride. He took some photos and here they are. You can see the amount of snow that is left!

See you on the Shrewsbury Sno-Birds Trails next season! It is nice to end this season with this photo of the snow lingering up in the mountains of Shrewsbury, VT. !  read more

Trail Report April 16, 2016

Well I guess we have come to the end of the 2017-2018 season. We will be closing the gates today and moving to the summer season. I want to personally thank Dad, Ray, Mark and Dave for there time out helping with the grooming effort! Also I want to thank the people that comment and send photos, otherwise I wonder if anyone is reading what I post. I, along with Mike G., will be posting things through the summer so keep watching as we will try to keep you up to date on everything including work sessions when we’ll hope to see you. read more

Trail Report April 1, 2018

I was up on the Wheelerville Road checking out the snow conditions. I saw that people are still riding. The snow still did not look too bad, it is mostly still covered from what people have told me. I could not close the gate at the Notch Road Parking Lot because there were three trucks with trailers still using it, which is great! Up at the groomer shed area I talked with some riders who said the trails were still quite nice even with all the rain we received. There were no water bars open at that time so looking at the forecast you may still be able to ride in the higher elevations even next weekend. read more

Trail Report March 26, 2018

Dad and Ray were out touching up or trails today! Every thing is holding up great. We don’t have any water bars open or any bad spots at this time. We will see how they fare this week with the warmer temps. If you do ride II would recommend early mornings or evenings as mid day they may be soft. Late week the moon will be pretty full so that will be nice.

If you see any wheel tracks on our trails please let me know as this is the time that people start to try an go where they are not wanted or legal. Some one was on the trail coming out of the Notch Road parking lot last week. Lucky for them they got back out and did not try and go down over the steep hill. Hopefully we wont have the Easter day issue that we had a couple of years ago! read more

Trail Report Update March 24, 2018

I took a ride on the Wheelerville Road to see how the trails were holding up. They are not as firm as we would like but the two groups that I talked to they were still not up and down with moguls, just loose snow. We will be back out as weather conditions allow.

Here is a photo of a couple of happy riders from Stockbridge. 

Trail Report March 24, 2018

Bridge on the Black Swamp Road on March 23, 2018. There is a lot of snow still.

I was out grooming up our trails last night. I groomed them all. They are still looking very nice. The water bars are still covered but some are getting narrower as the snow is melting do to the sun and water so stay more to the center of the trail in these areas.

I had to replace a u-joint at the Stone House last night also. I heard the u-joint squeak on the upper trail so I replaced it before some thing worse happened. read more

Dad and Ray off and grooming again!

Dad and Ray were out all day yesterday grooming up the trails yesterday. They are still looking really nice.  The water bars are still covered good. The next few days should keep the trails firm and good. The later part of next week the temps are getting warmer so the trails might start to soften up. Go out and ride while you can.

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
