Your club needs YOU for something on this list. It takes a great deal of volunteer effort to keep your trails in shape and make your club a success. Trail permit dollars go toward the cost of running the grooming machines, but the rest is accomplished through the volunteer efforts of people just like you.
Did you know you are a member of one of the best snowmobile clubs in existence? Snowcrest Riders was selected as top club in Ontario (2012), Canada (2013), and Internationally (2013).
These accomplishments were achieved by volunteers like you. Whether you can contribute part of a day, or part of several days, please take a look at the list below, and submit your volunteer form.
We have two volunteer groomer operators for the Trail 15 area south of Gravenhurst, but we need more operators. The shifts will be overnight on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Volunteer candidates should be mechanically inclined and have experience operating heavy equipment. Groomer training will be provided.
