Trail Report January 5, 2014

We went out and packed our trail system yesterday and last night. The trails are snow-covered but not much depth after they are compacted. Some water bars are still open and we need more snow to fill them in. All in all if you ride for the conditions you can have fun. There were several sleds out last night, one we sold our chainsaw gas to because he was out of fuel. It might have been a long night for him if we had not been out there! It is a nice sunny day today so go riding! read more

We wanted to groom last night but had Tucker issues. I am headed up now to get it going and will be out today.

Trail Report January 1, 2014

I have received reports that all our trails are open and rideable with caution! There are no down trees, the water bars are the main issues. I don’t think there is much water just have to slow down for them as we have not had enough snow to fill them in. Thank you for your updates and comments!

Ride Safely and Ride Right!

Trail Report December 2, 2013.

I am happy to let every one know that we should be ready to go as soon as the season opens if we have snow! It will be a very busy time as the muzzle loader season ends on that Sunday the 15th and the trails open on Monday the 16th. So it may take part of the week to get the rest of the signs out and the trails groomed up if the snow conditions are good enough.
Dave and JR Bove put out all the signs in Wheelerville and on Route 4 by the State Highway Garage and out the Falls Road which is our 407 trail.
Dave also finished the parking lot and groomer connector trail out of North Shrewsbury by installing the skidder plank bridge up by the Tin Shanty Road. I do believe that Angelo Tedesco helped him with that project. With that trail finished people parking at the parking lot will not have to do any road riding if they don’t want to. They can just cross the road and be on trails the rest of the way! The groomer will get better access also. I was also surprised to learn from our web guy that the parking lot is higher in elevation than the Chittenden Dam area, I did not know that!
Now everyone pray for SNOW !!!!! read more

Work Days October 19 and 20, 2013.

Dave giving the tree a “little push”. Thank you Dave!

We will be working on the trail out of the groomer shed { Gary Arthur’s } on both Saturday and Sunday the 19TH and 20TH. We have Jay Young lined up with his excavator along with Dave Fucci and his excavator. We hope to make a lot of progress this weekend. We are looking for people to help with the debrushing and tree cutting, so if you have the time to help it would be great! This club project is greatly needed to extend the season for riders wanting to park in the parking lot at the groomer shed. We will be starting at 7:30 AM at Gary Arthur’s. If you can’t make it that early come when you can. Hope to see you there! read more

Shrewsbury Sno-Birds Trails Now Available on Google Earth

Google Earth Screen Shot

It’s true you can view our EveryTrail map right in your browser but don’t stop there. We have created a color coded trail map especially for Google Earth viewing with placemarks, photos and even showing the closed trails so you won’t plan your trip only to find the trail you wanted to use is closed. :( We encourage you to “Link to” our Google Earth file so Google Earth will reload with the latest version every time it launches. read more
