42 Snowmobile VERMONT Magazine Club News The Buckaroos of 302 redecked this bridge over Sucker Brook in New Discovery State Park. comments or concerns please let us know. We are always looking for ways in which we can improve our trail system and our club. Heres hoping this season will be a great one As always be safe respect the landowners property and please dont litter our beautiful trails. Kevin McDonnell Vice President Taylor Lamberton Secretary Like us on Facebook Caledonia County Snowmobile Trail Club Here we are about to start another snowmobile season as we take in the fabulous vista of October foliage mixed with a gentle coating of snow. It is absolutely spectacular this year. Equally spectacular was last snowmobile season. We had snow cover for 15 of our 16 weeks of the clubs grooming contract with VAST. The unusual cold last year allowed snow that fell in late December to stay with us through April. It also contributed to some minor added maintenance to our PistenBully groomer and Mogul Master drag but certainly better than the brown snow of a few years ago. The directors are proud to announce that last year we groomed within our contract cap with VAST. The upside to this is that no additional expenses were incurred by the club as VAST had no contingency money available for reimbursing clubs that exceeded their cap. This year looks to follow the same weather cycle as the last two seasons. Our trails will open on December 16 providing we have sufficient snow cover. A strong upcoming El Nino looks to soften the temps while providing the moisture we need for great snow. The parking area at junction CA47 on Pierce Mill Rd. directly off Rt. 5 in St Johnsbury will have a comfort station once again this year. It is a courtesy item the club does to provide travelers with an option to start or continue their journey without having to find a business miles away. We have two other parking areas in our trail system for those that need to trailer their machines to access the corridor trails. Center Tower Irving in St. Johnsbury Center Vt. has gas food and repairs available and connects with trail 5F4. PettyCo Junction in East St. Johnsbury at the junction of Vermont state highways 2 and 18 has food and fuel available and connects to corridor 18. On Dec. 5 the Trail Club will sponsor a snowmobile safety course to be held at the Waterford Ridge Runners Clubhouse on Duck Pond Road in Waterford. The course is 8 hours and lunch will be provided. Register by calling 802-748-3833 or emailing the club at snowmobilecaledoniavt Registration is limited to 40 people and must be done in advance to have the materials ready for the course.
