From John Boals:

March 13, 2020
To All My Snowmobiling Friends,

It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement today as manager of the Upper Canada Snowmobile Region (UCSR). For 20 years I have been fortunate to have made a living by working in the sport that I so thoroughly enjoy and am passionate about. The people I have worked for and the club folks that I have helped out in my career have all shared the snowmobile passion which has made my job so enjoyable.

This letter is not meant as a good bye but rather an announcement that I am entering a new chapter in my life and I fully intend on remaining active as a volunteer with the Riverside Club. You will continue to see me on the trails riding and doing trail maintenance and grooming. I wish all the best to UCSR and the member clubs and I thank the district board for 20 years of employment. I am looking forward to the 2020-2021 season because I anticipate many kilometers of riding since I will not be bound by a 5 day work week. I will miss my daily club contacts and the resulting friendships that developed over my career but I look forward to new challenges as my retirement unfolds.

All the best,
John Boals


Upper Canada Snowmobile Region

The UCSR office of the O.F.S.C. is located in Morrisburg, and responds to administrative issues and fieldwork inquiries from the numerous snowmobile clubs and associations in Eastern Ontario.

The district consists of the area west to Napanee, north to Arnprior and east to the Ontario/Quebec border. It has over 3000 km of marked, groomed trails.

The clubs in the UCSR sell over 9000 trail permits annually to families in Eastern Ontario.

3000 kms of Trails
Groomed With Dedication

40 Groomers, operated by volunteers, look after 3000 kilometers of pristine trails.

Clearly marked, safe trails

All trails on our region are marked with clear, easy to understand signage each year.

The heart of each club

Each of our member clubs are powered by their volunteers and generous landowners.

More than Sledding

Besides snowmobiling, most of our clubs host events, fundraisers, breakfasts and more.

Some Facts

We recently asked club members about how satisfied they were after joining a local snowmobile club. A full 92% of them were very satisfied.

Much of the required work in grooming trails, reparing bridges, etc. are carried out by club volunteers. If you are a club member, consider volunteering. Immediately after a snowfall, our groomers are out, preparing the trails for safe, enjoyable sledding.

When you consider all the benefits that your permit brings, you get full value, not only in sledding, but in the many other benefits club membership provides.

Volunteer Information

Why people like you volunteer for your local snowmobile clubs:

1. Friendship

In an increasingly complex world, VOLUNTEERING for your local snowmobile club provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friends and fellowship.
You will find instant friends in both your own community and elsewhere in the province.

2. Fun

VOLUNTEERING is fun! Your club projects are fun; social activities are fun; meeting new riding buddies and service to others is fun.

3. Business Development and Networking

Everyone needs to network. Snowmobile Clubs consist of a cross-section of every business in your community. Our members come from all walks of life. Clubs help one another, and collectively help others.

4. Personal Growth and Development

VOLUNTEERING with your local club continues to better one's growth and education in human relations and personal development; motivating and leading others.

5. The Opportunity to Serve

This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a VOLUNTEER; the chance to do something for somebody else, sense the self-fulfillment that comes in the process and the return of that satisfaction to one's own life.

Some common concerns regarding volunteering

  • What if I don't have the time?
  • Really? You'd be surprised what can be accomplished in just one afternoon; every little bit adds up to a big difference. By pitching in for only a few hours at club activities like an event or riding your sled as a Trail Patroller, you'll feel really good about yourself.
  • Testimonial: "I came out to lend a hand with trail work for a day and now have met new riding buddies" Pete.
  • What if I don't know what to do or how to do it?
  • Not to worry. We're used to people volunteering without trail or club operation experience or all the skills required. That's why we have training available as you need it in a variety of formats: classroom, online or on the job.
  • Testimonial: "I work in the retail industry and the club matched my skills within the club and with a positive welcome" Paul.
  • What if They don't need someone like me or my family?
  • Not a chance. Snowmobiling is a family activity where women, seniors, couples, youth and families continue to play a vital role in the operation of our clubs. We have great opportunities for people of all ages and abilities, folks just like you!
  • Testimonial: "My family is a snowmobile family so it came natural to us to help our local club as a family" Christine.
  • What if I haven't been asked to help?
  • Why wait to be asked? Clubs always appreciate help. Sometimes they're just too busy to ask, even when they really could use an extra hand or two. By taking the initiative to approach your club, you will be doing them a big favour and find yourself warmly welcomed to a great experience!
  • Testimonial: "I sledded for years and was amazed at the consistent; safe trail product and decided I too can help to keep our trails the best in Ontario" Andre
