Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow ……


Although there has been a minimal amount of snow the snowmobile season is officially open in New York State. Don’t be distressed though as it wasn’t until mid-January of last year that we had enough cover to open the trails providing us with ample base for excellent riding conditions most of the season.
We’d like to take the time to acknowledge and thank our Groomer Operators whom volunteered over 450 hours of their time last season to maintain our trails smoothing and pulling snow to provide a well groomed trail system of over 32 miles from Schuylerville, through Bacon Hill, Northumberland, Gansevoort, Moreau, Wilton, and up the mountain through Greenfield Center to Corinth. As always when you come upon one of our groomers out on the trail doing their job, pull to the right and allow ample room for them to pass by. They have the right of way.
Listed below by hours groomed in descending order with the top four groomers hours listed are:
• Brian Wrisley – 114 hours
• Bill Gavin – 96 hours
• Jeff Trainor – 64 hours
• Wes Garnsey – 59 hours
• Gary Matthews
• Kevin Wells
• Dan Shipski
• Steve Shill
• Ken Scribner
• Craig Lafave
• Russ Mantz
• Rich Slater
• Zack Mantz
• Jim Warren

A groomer safety training course was offered last April in which fourteen volunteers offered several hours of their time to be properly trained to operate club groomers. Much thanks to all that attended and expressed an interest in helping this upcoming season. We look forward to a season which will provide all an opportunity to ride LMGSC’s Club trails and as always please ride safely and respectfully.
