Message from the President

As the current snowmobile season comes to a close, I would like to thank all of the club volunteers for their great efforts to ensure our trail system was opened as soon as possible and maintained in a safe and responsible manner. It was great to see all clubs have trails open this year, however the very cold weather in February put a bit of a damper on snowmobiling. Clubs once again have done an excellent job in keeping the trails in good condition. Again, a big thank you to all of the club volunteers.
 
On a sad note there has been one fatality on our trail system this year. Even one fatality is totally unacceptable and unnecessary. Snoman, clubs and snowmobilers must work together to help ensure we eliminate fatalities in future years. 
 
To all of the club volunteers have a great summer, get the batteries recharged and remember in only 6 short months and we will be getting ready for a new snowmobile season.    
 
Alan Butler



National Volunteer Week April

 
The staff and Board of Directors at Snoman would like to thank all the club members for their hard work and dedication through the years. Without the many volunteers throughout the province, there would be no trail system. You have given hours upon hours of your time grooming trails, making numerous trips to stock up the warm shelters, and many other activities that ensure a safe and enjoyable ride for others.
 
We would like to remind you of just how much your efforts are appreciated.
