All  Trails are Open

Jan 30 2014

FINALLY we have enough snow to work with, all our trails are in good to excellent shape after the 10″ to 14″ snowfall we received on the 27th and the 6″ on the 30th of Jan. Everything is groomed with little interference from ice, water bars, or rocks impeding travel. Time will tell how well this snow sticks to the ice base we have so use caution and watch speed especially in corners. The reciprocal weekend is coming up  Fri Jan 30th Sat Jan 31st and Sun Feb 1st witch will allow riders to use trails in NH, VT and Maine with a sled registered in any of the three states.

  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.
