Shrewsbury Sno-Birds have a new exciting and informative web site, check it out!!

We have been working hard with our web master to get a really nice web site up and running, I hope you like it! You can and we would really like VAST and Club members to give us input and photos of you trips thru our area. The site is Let us know what you think.


New Blog on Our Own Server!

This will my final post on this blog but NOT because I won’t be posting trail reports anymore. To the contrary, the club now has a server of its own where you can find our new web site and blog hosted at, only a temporary placeholder for our home page, as of today. Our web site is being built and will soon be in place. The new blog on the other hand is alive and fully functioning. Our webmaster has imported the posts and comments from this blog into it so I urge you to go to and bookmark it or subscribe to RSS feeds to keep informed of Shrewsbury Sno-Birds news and trail reports. Also we are adding a photo sharing site where club members can post their photos. Ride Safely and Ride Right!

Shrewsbury Sno-Birds April 2012 Meeting Correction !

The meeting place has changed for this month. It will be at Sabby’s on center street upstairs. Hope to see you there. By the way it is snowing in the higher elevations today, too bad it is too little too late as everything is locked up! Come to the meeting and help the club grow with new input. We are still looking for a computor expert to help with the website. This is a photo of the two signs that were stolen off the CCC Road, we would like them back if possible. If we listen real good someone might slip and talk about haveing them. If the State does not fix the road we might need them again!

We are locking the gates and takeing down the signs. This is the earlyist that we have done this that I can remember. Some one stole two signs that we had made up for closing the CCC Road . They were expensive to have made and we would like them back, no questions asked, just give them back. I don’t believe it was a snowmobiler, as there was vehicle traffic in the area with the lack of snow and not much mud in the area and the gate on the road was ripped apart last fall. If any one knows the person ask them to give them back! I want to thank  Dave Fucci, Scott Ryan, and JR Bove with the help of putting up the signs and opening and closing gates and other trail work this winter. I also want to thank my dad Gary Arthur with the help of groomer maintence, even in sub zero temps, and grooming  and trail maintence in this real snowless winter. We will be posting  trail work sesions as they are planed.  Hope to have your help this summer. Roy Arthur-Trails Coordinator.

Well Shrewsbury got 5 to 6 inches of snow at the North Shrewsbury Parking lot last night and today. I decided not to try and groom as to leave as much snow on the trails as possible for the riders. They like powder and the temps are not in favor of keeping the snow cover. If we cut and packed too much the sun will bare it up, don’t get me wrong I LOVE TO GROOM but I want what is best for the riders! Get out and ride while you can it is not going to last long!

Dad and mom went out grooming today. They did all the high elevation spots. RD 67 to 1mile norht of RD 65 above the old Poczobut Camp on 4&7 and over to RD 651 on 407 then down to the Clemit Shelter Road the back to 4&7 and back to home at RD69. They also did 7 south to the logging header and the rideable section of the CCC Road. The high areas still have good { for this year } snow amounts, but as you go down in elevation it gets thin. With warm temps coming I don’t think it is going to last long. Get out and ride if you can. Ride Safely and Ride Right!
