Snow Buddy is driven by Mike Derosier, who has been helping keep Vermont’s roads safe with VTrans for 36 years.

He works out of the garage in Lyndonville and plows Route 114 from the ‘Ville to Newark.

Mike thinks the name Snow Buddy is pretty cool and that the kids at Lyndon Town School did a great job coming up with it.

Snow Buddy is driven by Mike Derosier.

The Night Owl is driven by Thomas Hunt.

Tom has been with VTrans for almost a year.
