Snowmobiling in Vermont has been a favorite winter pastime for over 40 years. The Waterbury-Montpelier region, offers many snowmobiling opportunities. Located just south of Stowe and Smugglers' Notch, this area is home to the State Capital, Montpelier, VT (taking I-89, about 45min from the Burlington International Airport).
The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST), together with local clubs, maintains Vermont's snowmobile trail network with over 120 groomers. Many community-based clubs hold friendly events every weekend, all winter long, and a typical snowmobile season in Vermont runs from December 1 through April 1.
All it takes to snowmobile in the Waterbury-Montpelier region is a trail pass (TMA), a valid state registration, and insurance. Or take a guided tour from one of Vermont's many snowmobile tour operators. If you are already registered in your home state or province, you do not need to re-register in Vermont, but you must join a local club and purchase a trail pass.
Vermont makes snowmobiling easy with over 5,000 well-marked miles of the best-groomed trails snow allows, crossing public and private land. Find out the latest snowmobile trail conditions across Vermont with the VAST Trail Report.
