  1. We got up to a high of 88 before the storms rolled through late in the afternoon. Currently cloudy with a temp of 63.
  2. Currently 85F here in northern Vermont.
  3. I took this yesterday when I was passing through on my way to North Conway.
  4. I was shocked to see 3-4 inches of new snow in Crawford Notch this morning on my way to North Conway. It was bad enough going down. At least I wasn't in the new generation Camaro that was stuck trying to climb the notch.
  5. It's hard to compare southern NH to Pittsburg when it comes to grooming. They probably groom more in two weeks than some clubs do all season. I would think it would be very hard to fill their grooming shifts from December through March with volunteer operators.
  6. I think Nascar will be fine with Jr retiring at the end of the season. He is still going to be around the sport in some capacity. That will help keep some Jr fans interested. Plus there's a lot of young and up incoming talent in the sport right now. I think we'll see Chase Elliott take over as the sports biggest star to replace Jr. As far as the grandstands are concerned, that's not going to bother the tracks at least until Nascar renegotiates the next TV deal. They make plenty of coin from the networks for the broadcast rights.
  7. Currently 63 with showers here in northern VT.
  8. I have no idea what they used at the time. It was at least 15 years ago that they did that study. I like Skip's idea of having GPS transmitters placed in the large groomers. The state would know when a trail was last groomed and be able to produce an accurate up to date trail report. It would also eliminate a lot of paperwork
  9. Years ago, I'm going back to when Paul Gray was in charge of trails bureau, they had a sled counter setup where you enter White Lake State Park across from Canoe King. At the time it was the busiest road crossing in the state. It was also Corridor 15 at the time and was the way you accessed the Castle Trails. If they did snowmobile traffic counts back then, they could certainly do them today.
  10. Obviously something needs to be done to address the funding shortfall that has happened due to registration numbers dropping. I don't see the sport growing much over the next several years due to the rising cost of snowmobiles. I think there needs to be a balance of a small registration increase and clubs cutting back on their grooming schedule. If registration numbers are down, so is the traffic on the trails.
  11. Just another attempt by the NHSA to increase their revenue by essentially forcing everyone that registers to become a member of the organization.
  12. Drone video from this afternoon.
  13. How did your membership numbers do this year, George?
  14. Do any of you that mountain bike ever get up to Kingdom Trails here in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont? It's amazing how many people come to East Burke, VT to ride their mountain bikes.
