Late Winter 2016 61 cleared and maintained. It takes only ONE abuser to close it all down and MANY are impacted by that. Rerouting this trail is going to be a major expense. The club is also fortunate to have a Cook Shack on their trail system. Jared Wilson operates the shack and it was very obvious when I met with him that he takes a lot of pride in running it. He buys local including fresh meat from the local butcher. He hand makes the burgers every weekend and he only uses Cabot Cheese. It has been said that the Cook Shack has The Best Cheeseburgers on the Trail. GROOMERS EQUIPMENT The Cavendish Green Mountain Snow Fleas currently have three groomer operators. Joe Marini Dan Stowell and Dan Tiernan operate a 2011 Tucker Sno-Cat 2005 AMFI drag and a 2008 Mogul Master drag. A VAST grant helped the club purchase their Tucker in 20102011. VAST grants have allowed them to replace bridges on the trails over the years including many after Hurricane Irene. The club was also fortunate to be able to obtain a 3-year interest-free loan from Windsor County in 2014 to purchase new tracks for the Tucker when they needed to be replaced. This is a direct result of their TMA and County dues at work. The club contracts with Dennis Allen of the Little Ascutney club to groom their secondary trail using their Mule and a small drag. COUNTY BENEFITS Having the County as a resource has been very positive. Paying the 10 Windsor County dues gives member clubs the ability to obtain non-interest loans without any red Over the years the Snow Fleas have lost valued members that they considered family. As you ride their trails you may see one of the their memorial signs honoring volunteers Deryl Stowell Corridor 12 in the area of WR 43 John Bellino Corridor 12 Bypass north of WR 44 Vaino Manner Corridor 12 at WR 44 and George Wyman Corridor 127 at Twenty Mile Stream Road. Need Snow Club members gather in front of their Cook Shack at the intersection of Route 126 C and Corridor 12 NS WR 43 adjacent to Twenty Mile Stream Road.
