Winter 2016 29 By Patty Companik The Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas are a small club that has not had a destination ride for many years. At their first meeting of the season they decided to finally peruse this type of event at The Ravens Den a local restaurant located on the VAST trail system that is welcoming to snowmobilers. It is approximately a three to four hour sled ride from the Cavendish Cook Shack at WR 43 onto Corridor 12 then Corridor 127 to Corridor 7 and ending at the Ravens Den. Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas Chester Snowmobile Club and The Green Mountain Trail Blazers shared stories had lunch and lots of laughs at the Ravens Den on Jan. 16 in Manchester Center. Patty Companik photos Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate that day and what was supposed to be a ride-in unfortunately became a drive-in event. Many clubs have had to be flexible with their plans due to the lack of snow throughout the state this year. We all know that many of the local restaurants rely on the business of the snowmobile community. The club decided that still having the event was the right thing to do to help support the local economy. The Snow Fleas commented The club has responsibility to two groups our members and landowners. We understand that our members want to get out and ride. But we also need to protect the land where the trails are located and our landowners. Our decision to open trails or not is based on trail conditions and how grooming and riding the trails will affect the land. Planning is already underway for the ride-in next year so be sure to keep an eye on the Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas Facebook page for details. Join the group at the starting location along the route or at the final destination. The club welcomes everyone with open arms. Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas Ride-In Becomes Drive-In
