Due to COVID-19, we are unable to meet 4/9 per our usual monthly meeting. If you are a landowner and looking for things to do outside, feel free to take down sticks/rope that may be on your property, place them by the side of the road and let Dot know that you did that. Her # is 746-8189. Thank you all for a great, albeit quick, snow mobile season this year. May you all stay safe through this pandemic.

Dear Landowners and members, please see the letter that was sent in regards to this year’s dinner:
Because of the severity of the world wide problems with the virus, the
Tweed Valley Traveler’s will be unable to hold our much anticipated
annual landowners appreciation dinner at the Clear River Tavern this year.
We are sending this letter to make sure that you all know how much we
all appreciate and value the trust you put into our club to use your land
and we strive to always treat your property with the respect it deserves.
We all hope you are well during this crisis and look forward to seeing you
all again next year.
We’ve updated our trail map online. The majority of our trails are now closed and the only riding available is in the higher terrain of the National forest in the Michigan area. Base is firm and there are some bare spots. Dot recommends studs if you do venture out.
Still a month left, so hope for snow!
After assessing some of our trails, we’ve updated the trail conditions on the VAST site and have made some closures. We’ve closed things north of town towards Rochester and Bethel. Too much snow was lost and there’s a lot of bare spots in fields. You can still get to Barnard and you can currently get to services although there is limited snow in some of these areas and on 100S the warning indicates where you will be on a plowed section of road for a while. Best riding is in the National Forest in the Michigan area (74/73/75/745) and towards Chittenden. That was just about all groomed up last night and should be finished up tonight. As always, ride with caution.
Trails are in good shape. Some areas that had heavy traffic will be more bumped up then others. Corey and Bryon got out and groomed quite a bit last night out towards Barnard and to Ted Green Ford Bridge. Had a nice ride on our trails looping into Chittenden and trails were all in good shape. Passed the Chittenden groomer on their way towards bloodroot. Have fun out there and ride right, ride safe!
We did not get the amount of snow we were hoping for, but we did get some. Enough that we did get out grooming a little today. We started to fill in some water bars and smooth out what we could, but we still need more snow and water bars to freeze up solid which hopefully they will tonight and the next couple of days and even more importantly stay that way! We got some trees that had been cut previously pushed off the trails and put up some new signs as well at RD10 and RD11. If you do go out and ride, use caution. Even where we groomed, water bars are still open and we’re still looking at very early conditions, more like what we’d typically see in December. Think snow and ride safe!
Trails are open. We’ve got a bit more snow and there is an ok base in most areas, especially up higher. Conditions are still early season and can change at a moments notice and there are still branches/trees that may be down in areas as well as open water bars. In addition, we have a detour for this season. 100 N/S is closed between RD2 and RD7. Coming from the North, this means a longer trip to services, so plan accordingly. All services are open as well as access to the Swiss Farm. Please check the map, the closure is listed.
Groomer has not been out yet, we’ll get out when conditions permit. So please use caution going by the wall at Riverside farm. We’ve been working on improving that so it doesn’t get flooded but need to groom it. Go slow.
Think snow! Pictures are from Saturday
