Vermont Association of Snow Travelers is pleased to provide our new, no reception needed, mobile version of our official Trails Map, updated for the 2015-2016 season.

Going to an unfamiliar area? Enable GPS on your phone and never get lost! No need to try to figure out where you are, your phone app will show you relative to the trails, junctions and towns, with or without reception! Don't miss out on all these features: 

  • NEW! cloud backup/restore of routes and waypoints
  • app centers on your current location
  • corridor, corridor 4, secondary and commerce trail coverage

  • import routes created in the vtvast.org web map

REMEMBER: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Please be prepared.

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.

Snowy trails,
Matt Tetreault, VAST Trails Administrator

 

General Trail Conditions Report & Alerts

February 22nd, 2017

The February thaw is upon us and the trails are melting away quickly, especially in the low lying areas.  There is still plenty of snow in the high elevations and there will be some riding left but we need some colder temperatures to return.  There will be some riding for the weekend however the weather forecast is calling for rain.  The best bet is to stay off the trails until the winter conditions return.  There is still plenty of winter left!    The grooming fleet is idle awaiting the return of winter!

With warmer temperatures in the forecast trail conditions will continue to change quickly from one hour to the next.  Road crossings and south/west facing slopes are starting to look like it is spring.  Please keep this in mind as you ride this weekend.  Any road riding should be avoided.

 Stay off bare sections of trail, obey signs, respect landowners and please stay off all bodies of water.

If you are out riding please take note of the following; TransCanada Hydro Northeast anticipates increased runoff and rising reservoir levels with the mild weather coupled with the anticipated rain over the next few days.  This may create unsafe ice conditions on their reservoirs as a result. ( Harriman, Somerset, Moore, Comerford, & McIndoe)  It could also lead to ice jams, washouts, and other hazards at brook crossings along snowmobile trail corridors.  We want to make sure folks are aware and take precautions of the dangers that may be otherwise difficult to detect.

The Army Corp of Engineers have closed the gates in the North Springfield Dam area due to potential flooding.

We also ask that you 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!

 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.
