Snowmobile Association of Massachusetts member profile: Ed Morrin is the Second Vice President of the Mill Valley Snowmobile Club. Ed has been riding for 10 years, his first sled was a 1973 Arctic Cat Panther, his current ride is a 2006 Yamaha Nytro 1000. He does all the maintenance on the six snowmobiles in the family collection, ranging from 1973 to 2006. That keeps him pretty busy.

Volunteer work: I’ve been working with club members to re-route the snowmobile trail around the Amherst Water Shed. It’s been four years and we are making headway on landowner permissions. I also groom trails, do tree work, scout new trails, rock pick, park cars at the Belchertown Fair, help store club equipment, build bridges, take meeting attendance, and so on.

Favorite riding area: Right out of my back yard in Pelham/Belchertown. It’s the best thing to be able to leave from home on a sled or groomer. I also like Savoy, Conway, Rutland and Spencer.

Tell us a story: I was introduced to snowmobiling by my father-in-law ten years ago and got hooked. After moving from Connecticut to Belchertown, I joined the Mill Valley Club and got totally involved.

Tell us something interesting about you: I still have my first sled, an old 1973 Arctic Cat Panther. I rebuilt the engine and took it on the SAM vintage ride a few years ago. My kids are just as active and love to ride snowmobiles. My two boys ride a 2005 Polaris, my girls ride an Indy Classic. The family enjoys riding out to dinner from the backyard. I have been spending February vacation with my sons and some friends in Pittsburg, NH.

Sound Off: I just wish everyone in our sport would leave the trail behind them in as good or better shape as the trail in front of them.
