January 9, 2012 trail report

I did not think that it would be so far into the season with no rideable snow, but that is the case. There is a possible storm coming up the coast this week! We will have to wait and see. We did 240+ hours of equipment usage on the trails to repair the storm damage and repaired 7 bridges, one of them twice! I talked about it in the next issue of the VAST News. We have two areas that ar not passable this year. Trail 407  from RD 16 to RD651 has 2 bridges gone and trail#4 from RD67 [the black swamp road – ccc road intersection] to WR80 [ccc road – route 100 intersection] is closed because of a MAJOR WASHOUT. Do not try to travel in these closed areas, your life may depend on it! If we get some rideable snow I will post it. Our club meetings are the second tuesday of every month at 7:00 at the South Station on Main Street in Rutland . Every one is welcome and encourged to attend. Ride Safely and Ride Right!
