STAR TRAIL TAKES DELIVERY OF A NEW GROOMER!
In 2021, The Washington County Star Trail took delivery of a New Prinoth HUSKY trail groomer to help maintain snowmobile trails throughout Washington County.
"The new groomer decreased maintenance costs, downtime and operational costs that were rapidly increasing as the old groomer approached the end of it's useful life" said Chris Voligny, Trail Coordinator. "Our volunteer operators groom an extensive trail network across Washington County over a wide variety of challenging terrain. Reliability, serviceability and lower cost of operation are critical to our organization and this new groomer checks all the boxes."
The new groomer was put into operation in the 2021- 2022 snowmobile season.
