  5. Condition updates

    In Stark, we received another 3"-4" of new powder snow last night. All of the groomers in the area have been out (Groveton, Berlin, Gorham, Jefferson, Twin Mt.) and this new snow should help, but the base is still very thin and driving by trails that have been groomed, we could still see water and mud in the normally wet spots. We are hoping that the cold weather over the next few days will freeze things up. We are planning to go riding on Friday so will report back after that ride but I would say to anyone thinking about coming up to this area, that conditions should be fair in the woods and good on RR beds and logging roads. Certainly worth the trip.

  11. NH Conservation Officer Injured in Pittsburg Snowmobile Crash NH Fish and Game Officer Christopher Egan was injured in a snowmobile accident in Pittsburg while chasing two violators. Jeffrey Hastings, News Partner Posted Tue, Jan 19, 2021 at 9:03 am ET|Updated Tue, Jan 19, 2021 at 9:13 am Reply NH Fish and Game Officer Christopher Egan was injured in a snowmobile accident in Pittsburg while chasing two violators (NH FIsh and Game) PITTSBURG, NH — A NH Fish and Game Conservation Officer was injured in a snowmobile accident in Pittsburgh, NH on Monday. NH Conservation Officer Christopher Egan of Pittsburg crashed his snowmobile on Trail 139 in Pittsburg around 5:20 p.m. Egan was on active snowmobile patrol, travelling south, just north of the First Connecticut Lake Dam, when he witnessed two apparent violations pass him going in the opposite direction. After witnessing these violations, Egan travelled to an opening in the trail and reversed direction. Egan told investigators he was in the process of catching up to the snowmobiles in violation and navigating a bumpy stretch of the trail when the incident occurred. While going over the bumps, he said that he lost his footing from the running board, causing his right leg to come off his snowmobile and come in contact with the trail. Subsequently falling off the snowmobile and suffering a lower leg fracture. He did not sustain any other injuries. After the injury, Egan was able to move himself to the side of the trail and radio for assistance. During this time, he was encountered by three good Samaritans who rendered aid until rescuers arrived on the scene. Subscribe Pittsburg Fire-Rescue, 45th Parallel EMS, Conservation Officers and New Hampshire State Police responded to the scene. Egan was transported to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook for initial treatment. The crash is under investigation by New Hampshire State Police and is still ongoing. New Hampshire Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division would like to thank New Hampshire State Police, Pittsburg Fire-Rescue, and 45th Parallel EMS for their care and professionalism. Egan will need time to heal but is in high spirits and looking forward to coming back to work as soon as possible.
  12. NHSA safety course

    Ditto. F&G consistently reports inexperience as being the cause of serious accidents.
  13. NHSA safety course

    I took a safety class in Goffstown with my son a few years ago. I have been snowmobiling my whole life and I found it informative. I think everyone should have to take it.

    PRR have also had some groomers go down, hope for quick fixes.

    Was your son able to take the Maine safety course on line - we are waiting to hear if he is able to ride ❄️
  16. Condition updates

    Just came in from plowing in Pittsburg for about 12 hours if that tells you anything. Very slow moving storm and eventually over the last couple of days dropped about 8-12 depending on what part of town you are in. Encountered lots of people riding trails that are starting to shape up into something more like normal. Ridge Runners have been working their magic with the Bullys and some trails are very nice. pathfinder
  17. Condition updates

    In Stark, we received 5" of wet, sticky snow on Saturday followed by another 2" of wet snow on Saturday night. We had flurries most of today (Sunday) but it did not amount to more than a dusting. Once the cold weather comes in and freezes this wet snow up, I think it will be enough for the Groveton and Berlin groomers to get out and at least do some packing. Errol and Milan had been out before this storm on their logging road trails so this new snow should allow them to open up their woods trails. We trailered over to Millsfield on Wed. and did 50 miles on the logging roads in that system. The logging roads were snow covered but the skegs were clinking off rocks here and there. The Millsfield woods trails did not have enough snow to attempt riding them. Be aware that the lower end of Millsfield Pond Road and Rocky Pond Trail were closed for logging. Also we saw that the lower end of Signal Mt. Trail was plowed due to logging so getting into Errol from the south is problematic even with this new snow.

    Anyone have condition updates from twin mtn on up? NOHRSC page shows plenty !
  19. Ya know, I works better when I look at these pictures!
  20. So I was wondering!

    I still have good memories of a ride from Loudon to the Massebesic traffic circle through the SNHSS trails, Other than a logging operation on a portion of the C-15 trail it was all good.
  21. So I was wondering!

    That's good info. Thanks for posting the statutes. As a member of a southern NH club with minimal snowfall over the past few years, I am aware of the costs of what we do and hope GIA and RPT funds are available for clubs stay solvent and perform the good work that they do.

  23. So I was wondering!

    If collected registration fees aren't spent this season they aren't lost, they're retained and available for future use. RSA-C:39 Paragraph VII VII. (a) Any funds appropriated to the department of natural and cultural resources for the bureau's grant-in-aid program shall be kept in a separate account and shall not be used for any other purpose. The corresponding registration fee moneys allocated to the bureau's grant-in-aid program under paragraphs I and III shall be deposited in the account. Moneys in the account may only be used for grant-in-aid projects that benefit the ridership of snowmobiles. Any unexpended balance in said account shall not lapse, but shall be carried forward to the next fiscal year. All funds shall be used for trail maintenance, construction, and the purchase of grant-in-aid equipment. RSA-C:39 Paragraph VIII VIII. Funds appropriated to the department of natural and cultural resources for administration of the bureau shall be used for the following purposes: (a) Publications. (b) Trail maintenance and acquisition. (c) Land purchases, easements, rights-of-way, and new construction of trails. (d) Snowmobile facilities. (e) Such other purposes as may be budgeted within the limits of the funds available. Any unexpended balance in said accounts shall not lapse, but shall be carried forward to the next fiscal year. RSA-C-39 Paragraph VIIII IX. Any funds appropriated to the fish and game department shall be used for the following purposes: (a) Enforcement of the provisions of RSA 215-C and RSA 215-A.

(c) Law enforcement under this chapter, which shall be the responsibility of the executive director. (d) Snowmobile registration. (e) Such other purposes as may be budgeted within the limitation of the funds available. Any unexpended balance in said accounts shall not lapse, but shall be carried forward to the next fiscal year RSA-C:39 Paragraph X Any excess registration fees collected and not expended shall be nonlapsing and shall be retained by the snowmobile and OHRV program for future use. In each year of the biennium, the excess fees collected may be expended by the fish and game department and the department of natural and cultural resources in the same proportion as described in this section with prior approval of the fiscal committee and the governor and council.
  24. I just mailed off two vintage registration applications to Concord, for my principal vintage rider ( 73 Rupp Nitro 440) and a backup sled (90 Arctic Cat Prowler 440) these carried lifetime app fees of $129. each (up from $50. each). Happy to do it, looking forward to whatever riding will be possible, and worried about the future of people holding back feeding the mechanism that makes it all possible. Lot's of 0's in the pipeline of people that are necessary that have to come from somewhere to keep it going. Same with clubs and what keeps them going while too many people are sitting on the fence waiting for the "perfect storm" to enable them the "perfect ride". Think about the future of the sport, for what doesn't enter the "piggie bank" this year will affect the system next year.... pathfinder
  25. So I was wondering!

    There will continue to be money for summer work grants.
  26. So I was wondering!

    As the title suggests, I was wondering, what if this weather pattern continues and there is minimal grooming done throughout the state. What happens to all the money collected through registration for grooming? How can clubs plan on projects with no grooming money coming in? At a club meeting on Monday we were told that with the new registration increase comes increase in grooming funding rates. But with the increase in grooming funding rates there is no more GIA funding grants for projects. Just wondering
  27. Can't help but post this pic of a friend from Polonia WI Bill Stull and his amazing looking Rupp!
