Alburg Sno Springers
The Alburg Sno Springers, One of Grand Isle County's VAST Snowmobile clubs, might be one
of the smallest Clubs in VAST but it has been around for over 40 years and still going strong.
The club originated around 1968 with five to ten local residents. The original Club House was
the Community House in Alburg Springs,
Some of the original members were Ed and Nancy Christopher, Steve and Micky Deyo, Myric
and Theresa Bougeois and Ernest Hutchins.
Sometime around 1978 "Mom and Dad VAST" , Bill and Mitzi Oakes, became members and Bill
became Grand Isle Director and still is our Director today.
We have come from no groomed trails to around 40 miles (round trip) of well groomed and
managed trails going from the north end of town to the southern tip. We maintain the Alburgh
Recreational Rail Trail from East Alburg to Alburg Village which runs through State and town
We Might be small and have no mountains to climb but we feel that we have given the local
people and out of town folks that happen to give our trails a shot, a nice relaxing ride.
|This year VAST realized the need to do more for our land owners. VAST developed the
landowner appreciation value book. In it are various discount coupons from across the state.
We are proud to have as sponsors in this area Alburg Golf links, B.P. Auto Works, North
Hero House, On The Run Mobil Mart, and Scoot air. at the Northern Lights Airport in S.
