Letter from the President of Barnes Corners Sno-Pals (BCSP)


This letter is to explain some issue’s that have come to the Clubs Attention.

1.   Snowmobile Trail
   a.   The trails that we groom are for snowmobile riding only.
   b.   When we BCSP sign a Field and we put “STAY ON TRAIL” signs in a field, STAY ON THE TRAIL,  Do Not venture off the Trail out into the Field, the farmers land is Private Land that the Trail is going across and is for the snowmobile club and snowmobilers to go on ONLY.  The farmer could have planted alfalfa or a cover crop and they do not want these crops damaged or the fields dug up.  It requires a lot of work to Obtain Permission and keep that Permission to cross the farmers Land.  You want to ride fresh powder, go out west or to Quebec.
  c.   All of the Land on our Trail system is NOT for Boondocking or Off Trail Riding.
  d.   For example, Last winter, some snowmobiler opened a fence gate on the Copenhagen Trail and left the fence gate open.  The landowner’s horses got out of the fenced area. Now we have to find a trail around this property.
  e.   When we are out grooming the trails, we (the groomer operators) will stop or pullover and let you by, be patient.  To many people pass us on the inside of a corner or a crest of a hill.
  f.    Snowmobile speed on the trail is TOO FAST.  Slow down.
  g.   Too Many people are riding side by side on a trail.  Do not ride side by side on a trail.
  h.   There is a lot of Empty beer cans and garbage alongside of the trails.  This is a carry in, carry out area.  How would you like garbage dumped in your back yard?
  i.    Ultimately, We want everyone to ride safe and have fun.
  j. The Landowners are getting tired of the Disrespect to them.

 

2.   ATV’s
  a.   I have received numerous reports of ATV’s riding on a SNOWMOBILE Trail that passes across private land and State DEC Land.  THE SNOWMOBILE TRAILS on Private Land and State DEC Land ARE FOR SNOWMOBILES ONLY.  NO ATV’s on snowmobile trails that cross private Land and State DEC Land.
  b.   For example, We BCSP are installing gates on trails to hopefully limit access to these snowmobile trails, because ATV’s are riding these trails (specifically Tom Sawyer Truck Trail and Copenhagen Trail from 194 to Corey Road).  This is a SNOWMOBILE TRAIL ONLY.  We might have to Close these trails.
  c.   The atv’s that are riding on these trails, are NOT Representing the ATV sport in a good way.
  d.   Yes, we (BCSP) organize the SNIRT RUN which is an ATV Event, But the SNIRT RUN is a ROAD ONLY EVENT and does not go on any private land or Trails
  e.   Local Landowners are getting tired of the Disrespect to them.

Even though the groomer schedule never changes, they will often go out and do some of the trails even more often than what is listed on the groomer schedule.  As always, be safe and watch for the groomer. 

The BCSP stick to a an esatblished groomer schedule. We will occasionally post trail reports here but the best way to stay up to date on the condition of the trails is to join us on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/snopals
