BRVSC Social Media Pages

Stay in touch with us during the off season by following our two social media pages!

The most up to date information is found on Facebook, and lots of fun photos and are posted on Instagram every week.

These are the places we’ll be posting information for our upcoming summer event, and work parties to prepare for an amazing 2019-2020 season.

While you’re at it, always be sure to use hashtag #RideBakerRiver in all your social posts. This guarantees we see your content – and we love that!

TRAILS CLOSED: Thank you for a great season!

How, you ask, can we say with ENTHUSIASM that ALL TRAILS ARE NOW CLOSED for the season?

We can say it with GRATITUDE to the members and fellow snowmobilers who came weekend after weekend and enjoyed the Baker River Valley, to those who donated and participated in our events, raffles, and silliness and shared some great riding, food and laughs along the way.

We can say it with AWE to the fine members who showed enthusiasm week after week, after tireless week… From keeping the trails in tip-top shape even when mother nature tried to thwart our efforts, to shopping and cooking all week so that you could all enjoy our meals, or organizing club events and fundraisers to help support our new Tucker purchase.

We can say it with APPRECIATION to our landowners who have supported us all season with open lines of communication, and who realize that we as a club have their best interests at heart.

We can say it with the UTMOST ENTHUSIASM for what this off-season brings for Baker River. Keep your eyes and ears open because we’re not going anywhere!!!!

Watch for upcoming work parties, BBQ’s, summertime Poker Runs and more, because summer is a great time to be a part of BRVSC!

Trails Update 2/7/19

Everyone is wondering how BRVSC fared in this week’s warmer temps. Luckily with our great base, and all the efforts put in early in the season the answer is not too bad! Thank you to our riders for staying off the system this week. Your patience is greatly appreciated so we can stretch this season as far as possible.

  • Clubhouse North on Corridor 8 to Green Camp is thin with icy spots and even a few bare spots. Keep in mind this is that area that was already thin due to logging operations. Conditions quickly improve past the Green Camp.
  • Ten Mile Road, Rocky Loop and Little Rocky Loop were all groomed on Wednesday night and in great shape.
  • North Groton/Hog Hill area was groomed early Monday before the temps climbed. Assuming there was minimal traffic that area should’ve held well.

The groomer is scheduled to run later today and leading into the weekend if temps allow. Watch Facebook for more updates, and if you can be patient for just another day, Mother Nature is dropping those temps again for the weekend!

The Clubhouse and Grump’s Grill are celebrating New England this weekend!  Whether you’re from Meddybemps Vermont, Wyoming, Rhode Island, or Eggemoggin Maine you’re always welcome to #ridebakerriver.

Website Changes

We’ve made some changes to the website in preparation for the upcoming season. Although the site looks the similar we’ve revamped the photo gallery, calendar and club newsletter. Most members are using Facebook in favor of the old forum so the forum was removed to prevent spam and simplify the site. To make it easier for our members to get news we’ve also integrated our website into our Facebook page. Follow us on Facebook to get the latest news and updates as well as communicate with other club members. Some questions we’ve heard and the corresponding answers are below.

  • Q: I can’t log in to the website? A: We’ve removed the log in to the website. It’s primary purpose was the riders forum and we’ve removed that portion of the site.
  • Q: Will I still get the club newsletter? A: Yes, we’ve transferred the old mailing list to the new newsletter and you’ll continue to the club newsletter.
  • Q: How can I subscribe to the Club Newsletter? A: Enter your information on the right hand column of the club’s homepage. You’ll receive a confirmation email to insure you really want to receive the newsletter, be sure to click on the confirmation link within that email.
  • Q: How can I unsubscribe from the Club Newsletter? A: Click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the newsletter.
  • Q: I have some pictures I want to give the club for the site, how can I get them to the club? A: Post your pictures on the club’s Facebook wall or Email them to Ev.

Think Snow!!!!
