    Vermont is hit-and-miss with the gates. Many roads that are also snowmobile trails are not gated, but then I think sometimes at the end of snowmobile season they close the gates until Memorial Day to...

    I was thinking of climbing the Baldpate's in Maine on Saturday.
    Anyone know if they are broken out or likely to be broken out? I am told it can be hard to follow/find the route otherwise. Is that...

  21. POLL: Is there anything more annoying than this?
