The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers is responsible for maintaining about 5,000 miles of snowmobile trails. VAST sold early passes to about 16,000 people for this year’s season, which began Wednesday.
The state will spend nearly $3 million to complete the 93-mile trail between the Champlain Valley and the Connecticut River Valley by the end of summer 2023.
The Vermont Outdoor Recreation Economic Collaborative was formed earlier this year by an executive order from Gov. Phil Scott.

The most disheartening thing is seeing a lot of work that was done to improve trails get wiped out, he said. VAST used $540,000 in stimulus recovery act monies to put people to work on 40 projects around the state last year.
