If you haven’t "liked" us yet on Facebook, make sure you do so soon! Last minute changes for events are posted here and some members like to post "want to go for a ride" posts which work out great if your friends are too busy to ride and you want to ride, but not ride alone.

 

SAM GROOMER OF THE YEAR AWARD

At the Snowmobile Association of Massachusetts, (SAM), meeting this past spring, Kirk Stanaway received the SAM Groomer of the year award! Kirk primarily grooms in Pittsfield State Forest, but does assist our crews in the other areas as well by delivering fuel and other tasks. The trails in Pittsfield State Forest are some of the hardest trails to groom due to the steep slopes and the extra snow from snow making operations on the trails near the ski area. Kirk will sometimes spend eight hours a day or more grooming the trails.

If you happen to cross paths with Kirk or any of our other great groomer operators, please show them your appreciation.
