Get your last rides in (for now)! Snow is a coming, and the Boston Lot/ Landmark trail system will likely be closed starting Tues through most of next weekend. Check here (or trailforks) for the latest conditions, and please respect the closures. uvmba.org/localtrails/lebanon/

Snowshoeing always welcome and very much appreciated.

Thanks for the advice but I wasn't able to locate any latest (or even old) trail conditions on the link you provided. I love Trailforks. My only complaint is their process for reporting trail conditions is incredibly cumbersome to the point where, for all intents and purposes, Trailforks is not a viable resource for trail conditions.

Well packed, loose powder- a variety of trail conditions out there. But all good for Stuart Lander, heading out for a cold mid-morning ride in Boston Lot. ... See MoreSee Less

Time for the UVMBA Annual meeting! Find it on the home page of UVMBA.org. Watch at your leisure for the skinny on 2020, and the opportunity for UVMBA swag- not too leisurely, swag is limited!

This year it will not be beers and tacos, or seeing old friends and new, but we still have info, updates and SWAG- and free beers! W The “meeting” includes updates about new trails, the results so far on emtbs, where your money goes, and more.

We are searching for a few new Directors for the Board. We have had to postpone the election planned for this year’s meeting to our 2022 meeting. There will be about 3 spots up for grabs in Jan 2022, and we encourage you to start thinking about it now, and those interested to attend some meetings (currently virtual and monthly) over the next year, to get a better feel for what is entailed.

The a melted out dog print. The melting makes it get bigger. Bears have a double pad and would be wider and more oval than this.

Definitely dog

pooh!

That's a giant breed dog print I think. 4 toes instead of 5. Maybe I'm not seeing the thumb print for the 5th digit? For reference: www.alamy.com/black-bear-paw-image345297501.html

Avoid making the mud worse please- walk or turn back if your are sinking in please!

What kind of surfaces are you seeing? Just bare ground? Snow to snert lol? Thanks

B lot / Landmark trails are still CLOSED. We feel the pain!

But this cruddy weather pattern has not been quite cold enough to solidify all that liquid precipitation on top of the historic snowfall - and snowmelt.

Patience, and we will be riding righteous winter trails before you know it.

Settling in for the rain, plan is to groom after it settles out

Any update to when the Lot will be open?

Boston Lot /Landmark conditions update: We are working to get the best base we can for good season of riding, please don't ride.

Trails would most likely be open after xmas following a freeze.

Snowshoe packers are badly needed, and we thank you in advance for it- also a great workout!. See uvmba.org/winter-biking/grooming/snowshoegroom/ for specific guidance on packing. Please post your snowshoeing to trailforks. Trailforks has a snowshoeing activity option; if you tap the top where it usually says “mountain bike” you can change it to snowshoe. When creating a report, there are conditions options of “snow covered” “snow packed” “snow groomed” and “icy." Riding soon! In the meanwhile, skis and snowshoers are welcome on the trails. PC: Stacia LaPan

Fun to see lots of folks out packing yesterday - All these look a lot better - Fun House and northern Burnt, White Heat, White Light. Minor Threat. Rabbit Hole still needs more IMO.

I'll be out packing, starting from Nature walk, tomorrow afternoon. Any recommendations which trail I should focus on?

Jennifer, thank you! Fun House needs some attention. From there if you were up to it - down Craft then to Connector.

The Snow Dog was able to get through Rt 10 and down Hardwoods. Then up Burnt Pathway. We need snowshoes to break trail on Fun House and White Heat before the Snow Dog can expand the network and further. If you want to ride it you have to snowshoe it. Thanks to everyone that has already helped out. Riding is still a ways away. Spread the word.
