Matt Tetreault, Trails Administrator
Matt Tetreault grew up in Central Vermont where he began snowmobiling around his parent's fields on a 1971 Olympic Ski Doo at the age of 10. After passing the snowmobile safety course and moving up to a newer machine Matt began riding the VAST trails around his boyhood home. With family and friends by his side Matt spent many of his childhood nights and weekends out on the VAST trails enjoying the Vermont winters.
Matt joined the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers and moved into his current position as the VAST Trails Administrator. Besides being an avid snowmobiler, Matt enjoys spending time with his kids, working and recreating in the woods, hunting, fishing, gardening, boating and enjoying all forms of outdoor activities during the changing Vermont seasons.

Cyndy Carrier Brown, Office & Programs Manager
Cyndy is a native Vermonter who grew up on small dairy farm in Washington, VT and she loved every minute of it. She still helps her brother hay every summer; or it ain’t summer! She lives in Barre and is currently renovating an old house – keeping her busy. She loves to do anything outdoors–gardening, hiking, snowshoeing, back road riding. She is a director at the Barre Fish & Game Club and volunteers a lot with their many events; such as the kid’s fishing derby, community BBQ, and teaching women’s safety classes.

Ken Brown, Trails Manager & LVRT Project Manager
No relation to Cyndy Carrier Brown (though he does have a sister named Cyndie), Ken grew up in Chester, VT and has been living in Chittenden County since 2008, when he started a masters degree at UVM. Ken went to school for forestry, but his interests are anything relating to public land and outdoor recreation. He has been working in parks and trail maintenance since high-school (when he was on a VYCC trail crew), and was most recently a trail coordinator for the VT Dept. of Forests, Parks & Recreation.
Ken loves to hike, ski, and ride his road bike. He’s only ever ridden a snowmobile for work (at ski areas), so he’s excited to try it out for recreation!
