All  Trails are Open

Mar 21  2015

It’s been a great year, but all good things must come to an end. Our trails are still in good shape but we have stretched our allotted grooming hours as far as they will go and as of this writing we are through grooming for the year. Trails are beginning to show ice in corners and on south facing hills, so use caution in these areas. We hope to see everyone again next season and have a great summer.

  Club meetings are usually held on the 2nd Saturday of each month , 7PM at 793 Meadows Rd in Jefferson All are welcome and encouraged to attend. If there are any changes they will be posted to the “Club Calendar”

The law states that a Groomer has the right of way. Common sense says DO NOT PASS A MOVING GROOMER!!!

Jefferson Hilanders Groomer Pisten Bully 100

RECOMMENDED PRACTICE FOR PASSING A GROOMER approved by NHSA map and trails committee

  1. FOR ONCOMING SLEDS: The sled should pull off the trail and allow the groomer to pass by.
  2. OVERTAKING A GROOMER: The groomer operator should find a safe place to pull over and stop. The rider can then check to see if they can safely pass the groomer.

    NOTE: The groomer operator will not signal a sled to pass.

    Reason: Each rider must take responsibility for passing the Groomer.
