As the moon rose on the eve of SNOW FEST we felt that the 12 inches of snow that had fallen Thursday was a good sign for this year’s event. What started as an idea shared with a group of club members many meetings prior was on the eve of finally becoming reality. Our first year was 2016 at the Amos Brown House and old Mother Nature robbed of us the snow but not of the fest and we knew from the support we received in year one that we were on to something. This year we found out what that something was, and were glad we did.
The idea was simple, have an event that shared what snowmobiling is all about in Vermont, along with bringing family and friends together in a beautiful trail side setting and invite all to share in the day. We are happy to report this is what the EZ RIDERS SNOW FEST accomplished. First a very special thanks to all our club volunteers for the countless hours spent to make the event happen. And also to our landowners for the use of their property and our trails to get there. To Landmark Trust USA for providing the venue home and land. This great property and home is a year round rental available for fun weekends or mid week getaways. Jeff, Matt & Shane your help and efforts to help us complete our trail map for the event is greatly appreciated along with Beth for once again providing needed items quickly. To each and every business and club member that once again provided a wonderful group of raffle prizes. Southside Sales and Team Southside had demo rides of the 4 new 2017 Polaris Snowmobiles, which was a major hit and the 50+ riders that tried the new snowmobiles left happy. To Team Southside Race team your riding shows why race after race your team of 13 riders is on the podium and you amazed the crowd. Maybe next year we could host the Team Southside Invitational ?
A very special thanks to the following people and businesses for the support you gave and showed to help make our event possible. Tristan & Kelly / Landmark Trust USA without you and your wonderful home and property SNOW FEST would not be the same.
