--- IMPORTANT NOTICE---



*  A reminder to all, the snowmobile trail is NOT an ATV, DIRT BIKE or Utility Vehicle trail. Please do not use the trail for purposes other than snowmobiling

  Please respect landowner's rights. No ATV's, DIRT BIKES or Utility Vehicles are allowed on club trails at any time of the year - except club sponsored maintenance vehicles. 
 

Just a reminder..... A snowmobile club is a 365 day club. Help is needed all year round, so 
you can enjoy it in the winter. A big THANKS to our club officers and leaders for all you 
do. Without  you, we would not have trails to ride. We must also thank all of the 
landowners, for the privilege to use their property, for our enjoyment.



We are  in need of groomer operators
We will train you  


Please contact the Don Darnley @ 860-4015

Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated and welcomed!

 



 

 Please respect our land owners, for without them we would have no where to ride.
