While we highly encourage clubs to take advantage of this digital and instant opportunity to update your conditions in real time, we are offering an alternative for those who are unable to. New this winter, we will have a dedicated phone number for clubs to call and leave a message regarding wording for us to upload to the website about their trail conditions, openings and closings. We will also have an email address that clubs can email that information. A VAST staff person (twice a week) will work at loading the information into your club’s pages on our website and map. Lifetime members in attendance: Jim Hill, Ken Gammell, Star Poulin, Patrick Poulin, Conrad Stewart, Dexter Willson, Bonnie Holbrook and Mark Ellingwood.
