A Message From the VAST Trails Administrator
The Statewide Snowmobile Trail System (SSTS) features 4,700 miles of groomed corridor trails connecting Vermont’s communities and providing a quality riding experience for snowmobilers of all ages and riding abilities. The 128 VAST Snowmobile Clubs are responsible for maintaining an exceptional standard of trail signing and first class grooming for the VAST membership.
Eighty percent of the statewide snowmobile trails system is located on private property. This is accomplished through the support of thousands of generous landowners. Snowmobiling is a privilege and not a right, please respect our landowners. As a safe snowmobiler, the rest is up to you. By Riding Responsibly and understanding your riding ability, you and other riders on the trail will be able to enjoy one of the best snowmobile trail systems in the country.
The official snowmobile season in Vermont begins on December 16th and runs through April 15th each year. Grooming operations may occur at any hour during the day or night and remember that grooming equipment always has the right-of-way. Trail routes are subject to change at any time due to unexpected trail closures, logging operations, and weather related events.
Let our first class trails lead you on a winter adventure and discover some of Vermont’s best kept secrets. Whether it’s summiting one of the many peaks in the Green Mountain National Forest, riding on the path less traveled in the wilds of the Northeast Kingdom, or enjoying a tasty sandwich at a General Store along the thousands of miles of trail in between, there’s an adventure for all snowmobilers to enjoy.
Matt Tetreault, VAST Trails Administrator
General Trail Conditions Report & Alerts
January 17th, 2017
If you want to ride there is some decent opportunities available along the trails in the high elevations of the Northeast Kingdom. You will need to stick to the trails that utilize the high elevation roads.
If you ride please slow down through the logging operations taking place throughout the state. If speeds aren't under control all of the shared trails will be closed and there will not be access in many areas!
Watch for bare sections of trail, open water, exposed rocks, downed tree limbs and other hazards at all times. Caution must be used. Early season conditions exist with lots of ice. Obey signs, respect landowners and please stay off all bodies of water. Note that grooming operations have ceased in most areas until additional snow accumulations are received.
Check your local club's web or Facebook page for additional information and updates, or click on the link above to visit our trail conditions map. This map will show you the status of each trail.
