VAST Report

Summer, 2013

The 2013 snowmobile season was amazing -  trails opened early and stayed open all season up until the very end.   A huge improvement over the last season I'll say!  

 Repairs are being  been made to ensure another enjoyable riding season for 2014 in the beautiful Green Mountains! 

Check the Deerfield Valley Stump Jumper web site www.dvsj.com for updates.

Riding Tips:

Remember that the trails start the day in pristine condition, but traffic and riders who drive 1000+ cc sleds with trigger thumbs tear the trails apart by the afternoon...be patient with the trail conditions.... our groomers are working incredibly hard but cannot groom all trails every day!!

Please be respectful of the trails – DO NOT INTENTIONALLY SPIN YOUR TRACK especially up steep hills!!!! This is 100% cause of the bumps you all complain about!

There is a curfew on the entire VAST trail system – 11:00 PM – 7:00 AM no riding anywhere – you will be ticketed for trespassing if riding after curfew. Some trails have even earlier curfews – Our inn's curfew is 10:00 PM....Downtown trail is 9:00 PM. Know the rules where you ride!!

We can no longer ride the old Hogback ski trails up to the Fire Tower. There is a trail leading to the Hogback Gift Shop where they will be offering hot dogs, hot coffee and chocolate and other items. Please stay on designated trails in this area.

Enjoy these pictures of last season and get ready for the upcoming one!
