Summer Time in the Valley / Enjoy your 4th of July

We hope everyone is having a relaxing summer so far. It’s finally got hot enough that people are hoping for cooler temps. Funny isn’t it… how temper-mental we new englanders are about the weather?

The Bass Tourney went well. We will soon post the winners so stay tuned.

Our membership application has been updated for the 2014-2015 season and is available on the membership page. Please just click the link to download it and print off a copy or 10 for yourself and all your friends that you invite to the OVSC!

The electronic membership via Pay Pay will be up soon so please be patient and stay tuned.

We have been fortunate to have been approved for an RTP (Recreational Trails Program) Federal Grant that we applied for in the early spring. This application was for trail improvements on the Bowles Trail / Mac Hill and Cannon Sections. We were also approved for a Mountain Equipment Brush Bar. These applications required a lot of work from Dave Bowles, George Kaye and myself. Our members that stepped up this past winter and all that stopped by and offered help spurred us on as we all together continue to improve our trail system. Thanks to all of you!

More news will show up here as the summer progresses. Stay tuned. Have fun and be safe.

The Fat Lady has begun her song!

4/4/2014

What a great season we’ve had, and thanks to two particularly generous anonymous donors, what an extended season we’ve had. But now the money & the snow have finally run out! The gates to White Lake State Park and our two gates on 113 are closing today, due to lack of snow and many flooded areas in low lying spots. If you would like to ride our last remaining snow, you can trailer up to the Hemminway Forest area this weekend to reach our higher elevations. Expect spring like conditions (it actually is Spring) and use appropriate caution. Expect all trails, including Corridor 19, to be closing within the next few days. Once again, thank you so much for all of our donors, supporters and riders. And what begin as soon as the last gate closes? Trail preps for next season, so we hope to see some new faces out here this summer and fall as we prepare for yet another great season across the OVSC!

Weekend Preview:

3/27/2014

Hard to believe that it is just a few days until April and we are reporting that grooming continues and our trails are still in mid winter conditions. Even with the moderating temperatures expected this weekend our trails have all been freshly groomed, thanks to generous donations for fuel, and we will continue to groom until the fuel runs out! So once again we invite you to ride some of the best trails in the region this upcoming weekend…..

3/24/14 Past Weekend/Upcoming weekend

This past weekend was again just awesome. Snow cover throughout the system was in mid winter shape. Thanks to all that visited the Snack Shack and also made donations to the groomer jar.

Now for next weekend… Due to the super generous donations recently made our groomers will be able to operate this week recovering the trail system for next weekend. We are also anticipating a bit more snow…how much? We will keep an eye to the sky. This weeks conditions are excellent though a little bumpy…till the groomer crews hit it.
