On Saturday, February 18, the Vermont Warden Service responded to a snowmobile crash on the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST) Trail 100 in the Waterbury section of Mt. Mansfield Sate Forest.
In addition to the Vermont Warden Service, Stowe Rescue, Stowe Mountain Rescue, and the Stowe Police Department also responded to the scene.
An investigation of the crash determined that Alisha Habershaw, 28, of Rhode Island, was operating a snowmobile on a guided tour. Harshaw lost control of the snowmobile while navigating a curve and was ejected from the vehicle when it crashed into a ledge west of the trail.
Habershaw was transported out of the woods by Stowe Rescue and Stowe Mountain Rescue. She received treatment for severe but non-life-threatening injuries at Copley Hospital in Morristown.
The snowmobile sustained heavy front-end damage and was removed from the trail by the guiding service.
