every effort is made to adhere to the above grooming schedule,
equipment breakdowns, weather, snow conditions and operator
availability may cause changes to the grooming schedule.
North Country Mountaineers cover 65 miles of the VAST trail system in
Coventry, Irasburg and Newport. Each trail is groomed twice a week (See
schedule on left). Our goal is to update our trails report on Mondays
and Thursdays. However, we will update more often when there is big
news to report such as a pending snow storm etc.
We continue to e-mail our Trail Reports to members who
provided us with an e-mail address. If you would like to receive these
reports by e-mail contact Irene here.
