40 Groomers, operated by volunteers, look after 3000 kilometers of pristine trails.
All trails on our region are marked with clear, easy to understand signage each year.
Each of our member clubs are powered by their volunteers and generous landowners.
Besides snowmobiling, most of our clubs host events, fundraisers, breakfasts and more.
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.

Why people like you volunteer for your local snowmobile clubs:
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.
VOLUNTEERING is fun! Your club projects are fun; social activities are fun; meeting new riding buddies and service to others is fun.
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.
VOLUNTEERING with your local club continues to better one's growth and education in human relations and personal development; motivating and leading others.
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.
