The Husky Prinoth should be arriving in November and
we couldnt be more excited.
The hard work of volunteers and groomer operators has paid off.

This new groomer has been awarded to the
Near North Snowdrifters Snowmobile Club.
Buy where you ride makes a difference.

One of our old drags is being sent to a club that could use it.

Al has been a valuable member of the club for over 21 years and is a terrific
example of volunteerism and is completely dedicated to snowmobile safety and enjoyment.

Our training was provided by
Bernie Stockmans of WSN Forestry Health and Safety.
We would also like to thank
Tim Bryson of Tim Brysons Forestry Services
for providing the location and timber for the practise and cutting technique.
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.
