That being said it sure doesnt make it any easier. Its tough to know how much you all want to get out there and ride and groom and having no way to make it snow. I just keep hoping and praying for snow and more snow. Maybe by the time this magazine issue comes out all our snow dances will have worked. In the VAST office we have been busy even without major snowfall. There is a lot that goes into running the snowmobile industry in this state. I have written an article in this edition that speaks about what VAST is and why we differ from other states. I hope you enjoy it. While waiting for more snow and more trails to open I have been out at club events riding and meeting VAST members. Along the way I took some pictures that I would like to share with you all. Get your snow dance on and be safe out there. As always thank you so much for all you do for VAST and snowmobiling in Vermont Fond regards Snowmobile Vermont Magazine 26 Vast Lane Barre Vermont 05641 T 802 229-0005 F 802 223-4316 Snowmobile VT Magazine ISSN 2374-5630 is published five times Fall October Early Winter December Winter January Late Winter March and Summer August by The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers Inc 26 Vast Lane Barre VT 05641.
