Winter in the NEK

There’s a reason the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is known for its snowmobiling.

Vermont Association of Snow Travelers

Founded fifty years ago and one of the oldest snowmobiling organizations in the U.S., VAST is responsible for maintaining and grooming over 5,000 miles of snowmobile trails. VAST is a non-profit, private group that includes 127 clubs statewide, with over 24,000 members combined. The clubs, their steadfast volunteers, and the landowners that allow riders to cross their land are the backbone of the organization. Check out this season’s Snow Traveler’s Guide to Vermont for information on parking, lodging, grub, and more.

To ride VAST trails, follow these guidelines:

  1. Ensure that your snowmobile is registered and insured.
  2. Purchase a VAST TMA trail pass online.
  3. Join a county or local club where you ride most (you’ll be asked to join when you purchase your TMA).
  4. Take a safety course if you were born after July 1, 1983.
