January Meeting Highlights

The January club meeting was held on Saturday, January 11, 2020.

  • There were 30 members present. What a great turnout!!
  • The club has acquired a second groomer – a 2001 Skandic SWT with a drag. We got a really great deal on it, and it will allow us to touch up the trails around the Clubhouse during busy days, increase grooming capacity and perform trail work and maintenance with a club-owned sled.
  • The NHSA Ride-In for Camp Sno-Mo is quickly approaching. We discussed our contribution and the number of BRVSC members attending. If you haven’t made your plans yet, we hope you will join us to support a great cause and have some fun!

Next club meeting is Saturday, February 8. Potluck dinner at 6pm, meeting at 7pm. See ya there!

Trail Update 1/9/20

We have good snow cover in higher elevation, but still many bare spots and water bars in the lower terrain. There is one especially large water bar on Cheever Trail after you cross North Groton Road – please use caution.

We did get 4″+ of fresh snow yesterday and conditions continue to improve and we are actively grooming as weather permits. However, the forecast doesn’t look great for this weekend and we may have to suspend grooming operations after today until Monday. If you can’t get out there before the weekend, it may be best to wait until rain and warm temps have passed before enjoying the trails.

That said, the clubhouse will be open all weekend! We have a Club Meeting on Saturday evening (potluck dinner at 6pm and meeting at 7pm) and our Monthly Pancake Buffet Breakfast on Sunday morning starting at 8am. Hope to see many of you there despite the forecast!

Trail Update 1/3/20

Unfortunately, the Tucker will remain parked tonight as it is just too warm to effectively groom. All trails remain open, but they have taken a beating with the heavy traffic and warm temps we’ve had this week. Expect thin snow cover in the lower terrain and good cover in the higher terrain with mostly ungroomed trails.

Tomorrow night, we are expecting below freezing temps and 2-4” of snow. We hope to groom as much of our system as we can then and with any luck, trails will be in much better shape Sunday morning.

The Clubhouse and Grump’s Grill will be open Saturday and Sunday 8-4 and our lunch specials are worth the drive themselves. Hope to see many of you this weekend!
