54 Snowmobile VERMONT LAMOILLE COUNTY Smugglers Notch Snowmobile Club Winter is here and hopefully by the time you are reading this article snow has arrived too. 2015 was a busy year for the Smugglers Notch Snowmobile Club. We ended the 20142015 winter season on a good note after being blessed with lots of snow and cold temps for most of the winter. Our 2015 Tucker 2000 ran well all season and logged lots of miles of grooming. As most of you know snowmobile clubs dont take a vacation once spring arrives and through the summer. Once the snow is all melted there is plenty of work that happens throughout the summer months and into the fall in preparation for next seasons riding. This past summer was no exception. We tackled a few different construction projects on different sections of our trail system. Some of these projects were planned and some were not compliments of Mother Nature. One of the projects we completed during the summer and fall of 2015 was a reroute for the 15 West Corridor trail that goes from Jeffersonville down to Westford and Essex. A new reroute was established after numerous hours of volunteered time scoping out potential trail locations talking to landowners and organizing all the work to get done. This new reroute is hopefully going to be temporary for around a five year period as we are hoping to relocate the trail on the south side of VT RT 15 for a ways and then drop down into Westford which would eliminate road riding and road crossings. But for now we have a reroute that will allow riders to travel between Chittenden and Lamoille county which is huge part of the trail system. We also tackled some erosion Bridge repair was completed on Smugglers Notch Snowmobile Clubs Trail 108 at the bottom of the south side of Kings Hill Mtn.

Blocks one through four were moved with a good deal of huffing and puffing but no major disasters. We didnt even break a sweat although that may have been due to the 14 degree temperature and stiff north wind. Then came block five on a narrow section of trail with steep drops on each side. We had to go to the side where we had an anchor for the come-along. At the bottom of the 10-foot drop was over three feet of water. We muscled the block around and just needed to turn it on its side. We jacked it up to the balance point and watched it slowly descend to the earth. Our brief moment of victory quickly changed to horror as it kept going down the bank.
