Vermont makes it easy to go snowmobiling with its well-marked trails, detailed maps, easy access to fuel stops, dining and accommodations. Convenient trailheads mean snowmobilers can hook up to trails anywhere in the state. And all it takes to snowmobile is a simple trail pass and a valid state registration. Or simply take a guided tour from one of Vermont’s many snowmobile tour operators.
You’ll find the best-groomed trails the snow allows. The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST), together with local clubs, maintains Vermont’s trail network with over 120 groomers to assure smooth riding. And when you hit the trail, you’ll find VAST’s 129 community-based clubs hold friendly events every weekend all winter long, from pancake breakfasts and chicken barbecues to spaghetti dinners, charity rides, radar runs and snocross races.
