snowmobile club

Once again this year, a large group of snowmobile clubs in several states is reaching out directly to you, seeking your membership as they continue to create and maintain much of the trail infrastructure and access that you utilize to enjoy our sport.

                Aside from general support, though, there are many reasons to join a club, so we offer the ABCs of club membership below. Read through it, then peruse the following list of forward-thinking clubs that are specifically rolling out the red carpet looking for new members. Whether you join one of these excellent clubs or find one closer to where you live or regularly ride at SnowGoer.com/snowmobile-club-directory, make this the year that you finally stop putting off what you know you should do.   

Always remember that snowmobile clubs are the ones in most areas that put in trails in the fall, take care of them all winter and take out the signage in the spring.

Being a part of the “solution” when it comes to current and future snowmobiling is something you can take pride in once you’re active in a club.

Camaraderie is what you will find in a snowmobile club as you hang out with folks who share your love of the sport.

Discounts at local businesses and, in an increasing number of states, on sled registration fees and trail permits are often granted to club members.

Even if you’re busy and can’t volunteer much time at this point in your life, join a club anyway, and be counted.

Fun for the whole family can be had in a snowmobile club, and not just during the winter season, as most clubs have social gatherings, fund raisers, campouts, participate in community events and more!

Groomed trails in pristine condition are the nirvana of many snowmobilers. If you want them, support those trails and the organizations that do the work.

Higher fees are what we will all pay if the snowmobile club system doesn’t get the support it needs. The clubs’ volunteer efforts hold the costs down for all of us.

Including and engaging snowmobilers of all ages is a focus of many clubs – it doesn’t matter if you’re closer to 10, 30, 50 or 70, they have a spot for you.

Joining a club is easy – check out the list of supporting clubs over the next three pages or find one online in your area or favorite riding destination.

Karma will be on your side when you do the right thing and join a snowmobile club!

Laws affecting snowmobiling should be written with snowmobilers’ input, and as a supporting member of a club and thus the state and national snowmobiling organizations, your input can be heard by the folks making the laws.

Maybe you already belong to a club? First, let us thank you, and then we’d like to encourage you to influence two friends to join your club this year.

Numbers are what snowmobiling needs to successfully lobby governments for continued funding and access; you need to be one of those numbers.

Obligation is frankly something you should feel if you’ve been riding for a long time and never belonged to a club. Live up to that obligation this year.

Private landowners and the access they offer to clubs is what keeps the trail systems alive in most areas. Without clubs maintaining relationships with those landowners, there are no trails.

Questioning why a trail follows a certain path or is groomed a certain way is easy for non club members, but you can find the answers and be a part of the solutions if you join.

Riding a snowmobile is what winter is all about, and you’ll have more chances to ride if you belong to a club because you’ll be surrounded by other riders, and many clubs have organized rides and trips.

Snowmobiling is unique in its dependence of its grassroots network, but it’s also why our sport enjoys more trails and land access than any sport in North America.

Trails don’t just happen. They are the result of a concerted effort by snowmobile clubs across North America.

Understanding how the trail system works will increase your appreciation – and enjoyment – of not just your club’s trails but other trails and riding areas you access all winter long.

Volunteering is fun! Once you get involved, you’ll find that fall days putting in trail markers or brushing trails are highly enjoyable, as are other club assignments.

Watching from the sidelines is no longer an option. The sport needs you now more than ever.

Xerox a copy of a snowmobile club membership form and give it to your riding buddies: You may find attending your first club meeting is easier if you join with a friend.

You are the one who will benefit most from club membership, because you’ll gain friends and riding partners and you’ll ensure the survival of the sport you love.

Zero riding opportunities will be available if snowmobiling’s grassroots system collapses. Do your part and sign up for a club today.
