Your snow dance is working but please do not stop. We are still waiting for that “big dump” of snow. The few inches that we get now and then have been adding up. The Tucker, Skandic and Polaris have been out on the trails when conditions exist. There are still many icy spots on the trails and you need to be aware of, especially in the open windblown areas, as this rider can attest to. Also, be careful of rocks and sticks that have not been fully buried by the snow. We would like to thank our groomer operators for the many hours they spend outside making our trails some of the best in the area. It is not an easy job. They don’t just sit in the warm cab driving, but they have to get out and clear away the many trees that keep coming down across the trails. If you get a chance, come be a helper in the shotgun seat for a night. They would appreciate the help.
As you are out on our trails, keep an eye out for “Carl the Cardinal” hanging around. If you spot Carl, take a picture with him and post it on our facebook page. He keeps moving from tree to tree during the season.
Littleton Off Road Riders system now has a Temporary Trail Closure of one of our main trails. Trans Canada will be starting with bridge replacements for their timber harvesting operation, on the Moore Dam loop trail between Old Waterford Road and Hilltop Road Boat accesses. It will require the temporary closure of this section of the loop trail till further notice. LORR Appreciates Trans Canada for their support of our trail system! We are trying to get permission for an alternate route around this logging area. Please check our facebook and website pages for further status of the reroute.
Our meetings are being well attended and hope to see more people as the season gets into full swing. After the meeting snacks and drinks are enjoyed by all.
We are always seeking new members to help support our activities. Feel free to join the Littleton Off Road Riders Snowmobile Club (LORR) by contacting our membership director Scott Simons at firstname.lastname@example.org or by attending one of our club meetings held at the Opera House on Main Street in Littleton. Our meetings start at 7:00PM and the dates are posted on our website. Club membership is $25 for the year. We certainly hope you can join us!
My closing thought, as always: Please respect the landowners that our trails traverse. Without their permission and without the work of club members, our Littleton and NH snowmobile trail system would not exist.
That’s all for now, ride safely, stay to the right and enjoy the trails.
See you on the TRAILS!
