Founded 50 years ago, VAST is responsible for the organization of the sport of snowmobiling, maintaining and grooming over 4,700 miles of trails in Vermont. One of the oldest snowmobiling organizations in the U.S., VAST is a non-profit 501-c-3 organization that includes 127 clubs statewide, with over 24,000 members combined. The clubs and their steadfast volunteers, and the landowners that allow riders to cross their land are the backbone of the organization.
Through a family of 28 unified chapters, the association carries out its mission, which is to ensure the sustainable future of mountain biking in Vermont and to thoughtfully promote the best riding in the country by serving as the central hub for advocacy, education and event support. VMBA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
To provide recreation and education opportunities for local residents and visitors while working to conserve natural resources and create economic stimulation. We strive to accomplish this mission by providing a network of quality non-motorized trails for all level of abilities incorporating the best of the local scenery and natural diversity. We have permission of over ninety landowners and businesses that make this all possible.
The purpose of the Cross Vermont Trail Association is to assist municipalities, recreation groups, and landowners in the creation and management of a four-season, multi-use trail across the state of Vermont for public recreation, alternative transportation, and awareness of our natural and cultural heritage.

The beauty and allure of the Green Mountains have attracted mountain purists from all over the world. Hard-working Vermonters have created remarkable recreational opportunities for locals and tourists to enjoy. Countless trails were created over the years by skiers, mountain bikers, and hikers. Our mission is to take these individual trail systems and unify them by linking a cohesive network of backcountry accommodations – where huts, cabins, yurts and lodges will exist to enhance our outdoor adventures.
Local Motion was founded in 1999 with a singular (and improbable) goal: to get people on bikes across the mouth of the Winooski River, where the Burlington Bike Path then came to an end. Since then, we have grown to become Vermont's statewide advocate for active transportation, vibrant communities, and safe streets. Our mission is simple: to bring walking and biking within reach for all Vermonters.
Mad River Path will improve surfaces, create crosswalks and resting areas, provide landscaping, and separate walking paths from traffic.
