2009 Holiday Party Photos


The Weekend of December 25, 2009 was a busy one on the "Hill". Chimney Hill held its annual Holiday party on December 26 with many owners braving the elements to attend our now traditional Gift Giving Gamble for kids and adults. Thanks to the "Keep the Events Alive" committee, ample food and drink was available and a good time was had by all. Special thanks to Larry Christian and Ken Spicer for running the Gift Giving Gamble and the
Clubhouse staff for all their help.

Chimney Hill
It's all about convenience, community and fun when you own or rent a home at Chimney Hill.

pool.gifSummer and Fall are great fun at Chimney Hill. Soak up that southern Vermont sun. Our Clubhouse is outfitted with  beautiful outdoor and indoor pools, hot tub, fitness room, game room, children's play area, lighted basketball court and lighted tennis court, bocce court, volleyball court and horseshoe pit. Venture away from the Clubhouse and find hiking trails throughout the community and the Green Mountain National Forest (Chimney Hill borders the Green Mountain falloutdoors.gifNational Forest). There's also a stocked fishing pond, playgrounds and picnic areas throughout the community.

The surrounding area of the Mount Snow valley offers a top-rated golf course, Vermont's largest man-made lake, live entertainment, and award-winning restaurants.

Winter and spring are just as much fun. Chimney Hill is located on the VAST Snowmobile trail snowmobile.gifnetwork with many homes having direct access. Chimney Hill has also created a network of non-motorized wilderness trails for hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Our outdoor ice skating rink (with warming hut) is a great place for the whole family. We now have a pickleball court at the ice rink; paddles and balls are available for sign-out at the office. Some of New England's best downhill skiing and snowboarding can be found just minutes away at Mount Snow Ski Resort.

ACC Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by Gene Clark, Chair., at 8:00 AM at the Chimney Hill office in
Wilmington, VT, Saturday, September 1, 2018. In attendance were Jane Cary, Thomas Anderson,
James Bogard and Roy Schluter. Also present was Kenneth Spicer, Executive Director and Brian
Lynch, owner of # B-4 Valley View.


Upon a motion duly made, seconded, and approved by Gene Clark and Thomas Anderson (Jane
Cary, James Bogard and Roy Schluter abstained as they were not at the August 4, 2018 ACC
meeting), it was RESOLVED to accept the August 4, 2018 ACC minutes.


Letters
Ken Spicer, Executive Director, reviewed the recent letters for maintenance items that were
approved:
# 281 Old Witness Tree Lane, replacement of front deck railing and exterior of home touch up
staining, same color.
# 652 Twin Brook Road, exterior deck painting, same color.
# 902 Fawn Run, shingle roof replacement (same color).
# C-204 East Brook Crossing, interior renovations: installation of wood paneling in lower level
(currently unfinished), finish lower level bathroom (plumbing previously in place), replace spiral
staircase with traditional staircase.


New Business
             B-4 Valley View, request for the construction of a shed and variance.
The committee reviewed an application for a shed. The proposed shed placement indicates 21 feet
from the front property line requiring a variance of 19 feet from the 40 foot side setback requirement.
The owner of the property, Mr. Lynch, explained that the topography of the lot, wetness of the
property and location of the septic area prevents placing the shed in a location that meets the setback
requirement. Mr. Lynch explained that the location of the shed (behind the existing rubbish bin)
would not be visible from the road or neighbors’ view and would be more than 60 feet from Valley
View Road. After review and discussion the committee approved the shed pending the following:
1) Board approval of the setback variance.
Footnote: At the September 1, 2018 Board of Directors meeting the Board approved the variance
request as recommended by the ACC.

Chimney Hill Owners Association Ski Club Survey

SKI CLUB SURVEY

At the Clubhouse this winter some owners mentioned that they would be interested in having their children meet other CHOA children to ski/snowboard together. As we talked more about the idea others mentioned that possibly Mount Snow would give a “ski club” a group rate on lift tickets. In order to pursue these ideas we would like to know if your child/children are interested in such a club. Please provide us with the following information.

Snowmobiling at Chimney Hill

TRAIL USE AND SNOWMOBILES

Following is a brief overview of snowmobile operation in Vermont and Chimney Hill. Please note that laws for the operation of snowmobiles in Vermont change periodically. For complete information concerning Vermont snowmobile laws, requirements, fines and penalties please visit the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST) website: www.vtvast.org

For information on the local snowmobile club, Deerfield Valley Stump Jumpers, please visit their website: www.dvsj.com

All snowmobiles used in the State of Vermont (and Chimney Hill) must have the following (violators are subject to fines per machine):

  • Current registration in any state or province
  • Trail maintenance assessment (TMA) decal
  • snowmobile club membership (the local club is the Deerfield Valley Stump Jumpers).

PROOF OF INSURANCE

Effective September 1, 2003 - all individuals operating a snowmobile, in Vermont on the statewide snowmobile trails system, shall have a liability insurance policy or bond in the amounts of at least $25,000 for one person and $50,000 for two or more persons killed or injured and $10,000 for damages to property in any one accident. In lieu thereof, evidence of self-insurance in the amount of $115,000 must be filed with the commissioner. You must carry proof of insurance and show it upon demand.

You will be fined for failure to carry required liability insurance and the fine is not inexpensive.

Vt. State registrations and/or VAST trail passes are available at Fat City Motor Worx which is located on Route 100 just north of the Route 9/Route 100 intersection in Wilmington, and Chamber of Commerce in Downtown Wilmington (Friday, Saturday and Sunday only). Please note that insurance is not available at these locations and must be obtained privately.

            All snowmobilers must be responsible riders

  • Stay on marked trails.
  • Obey posted signs.
  • Keep speed to a “reasonable” limit – Note that the maximum speed limit on State lands is 35 mph. Radar use on trails is becoming standard practice.
  • Keep noise to a minimum.
  • Do not litter the trail system (always take out more than you bring in).
  • has a tough “Snowmobiling While Intoxicated (SWI) Law which covers both drugs and alcohol. While you will be charged with SWI on the VAST trail system, intoxicated snowmobilers operating on a public highway (road) will be charged with a DWI resulting in points and drivers license suspension.

            All snowmobilers must observe the “curfew” system within the Deerfield Valley, 11:00 pm except:

You may only ride between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. on trails noted below (this also applies to all Chimney Hill non-VAST trails)

  • Wm4 to downtown Wilmington
  • Chimney Hill VAST trail

 

  • By law, persons born after July 1, 1983 must complete a Vermont safety course for snowmobiling. Information can be obtained at the following web address:  dvsj.com or vtvast.org.
  • Children ages 12 – 16 cannot cross a town or state road/highway.
  • Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • All snowmobilers must wear a helmet when riding on Chimney Hill and VAST trails.
  • Chimney Hill has emergency parking areas throughout the hill. These areas can be used for temporary snowmobile trailer parking; 48 hour maximum. The following emergency parking areas have direct access to the Chimney Hill and/or VAST trail system:Binney Brook Road emergency parking area and the Birchwood recreation area. Please park trailers to allow for plowing.

 You must notify the Chimney Hill office at (802) 464-2181 if you plan to use the temporary parking areas for more than 12 hours. Snowmobile trailer parking is not allowed at the Clubhouse parking lot or office parking lot.

  • SPECIAL NOTES:
  • Snowmobiling and snowmobiles are not permitted on the skating rink located in the Birchwood recreation area at any time, this area is clearly marked.
  • Although all trails in Chimney Hill are designated as multiple use (this includes the VAST portion) some areas and trails are for non-motorized use. These areas include a large portion of property bordered by Haystack Road and Route 9. These areas are clearly marked as non-motorized.

Violators of the above special notes will lose their rights to operate a snowmobile in Chimney Hill for one year.
