As the 2013 season comes to an end, we encourage everyone to check with their local clubs before riding and please respect trail closing dates. Riding on a trail after it has been closed jeopardizes riding opportunity for everyone, so please respect the landowners.
Please save the date for our 2014 Annual Meeting: January 14, 2014 at the Montpelier Elks Lodge. More info to come!
Note: Clubs throughout the state are in need of volunteers. Remember, it doesn't take much to make a big difference. If you love ATVing in Vermont, please donate some of your time to a local club. Its fun and rewarding!

VASA encourages and promotes safe ATV operation. It is important to carefully read and follow the instructions and warnings in the owner’s manual and on labels. ATVs handle differently from other vehicles such as motorcycles and cars. Proper instruction and practice are important.
ATVs can be hazardous to operate. For your safety, always wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing. Never carry passengers (unless your ATV was so designed) or engage in stunt riding. Avoid excessive speeds. Riding and alcohol or other drugs don’t mix. Be extra careful on difficult terrain. Respect the land owner, stay on the legal trail or seek written permission to use another's land.
