The Snowdrifters have been around a while and are always
looking to the future of the sport in our area.

Our club strives to maintain solid relationships with landowners,
who are critical for the future of the sport, and have even
managed to open new local routes throughout our area.

A Snowdrifter Cash Donation to the Sundridge Strong Fire Dept.

Read about landowners and the OFSC and OFATV agreement
Our trail system is based on landowners allowing us passage on their property.

We would like to honour
Brian Bradley, our former club treasurer,
who passed away while out riding.

George Cottrell, a local heavy equipment owner/operator,
responsible for a significant amount of
Snowdrifter trail clearing, is no longer with us.

The Near North Snowdrifters will miss him.
