Smithers Snowmobile Association

November 2017


The raffle is our biggest revenue generator but yet we struggle to find people to help sell tickets. If there is anyone who could spare a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday that would be excellent. It doesn't even have to be a full day, it could be just an afternoon or a few hours. If you are interested please contact Trails North or the SSA at

Maintenance in the Telkwas

A couple big things happened last month. First off it was organized to brush the trail out at Sinclair. About 4-5 kms was completed in approximately 4 days. The trail is about 30ft wide now in most areas. We hope everyone appreciates this work and let us know how it looks once you start using it.

While taking the equipment out of Sinclair, it made a stop at the 19km parking lot and installed a new outhouse! Supposedly the standard seat wasn't available so we went down town and bought a nicer seat.

Whistler Ridge Contracting did the trail brushing and installed the outhouse. R. Bredow Contracting was gracious enough to supply us with a culvert.

Cabin Directors

We now have a full set of cabin directors. After the last meeting we didn't have anyone to check on the Onion shelters but since then Aaron Christensen has stepped up and offered to do the job. Thanks Aaron.

Telkwa FSR

The SSA has a permit to maintain this road during the winter months but nobody does it during the pring, summer or fall. The last we've heard this road is in really rough shape. It's unlikely that PIR will take over maintaining this road anytime soon so we mentioned it at this meeting that maybe we may have to do something to it.

Avalanche Course

Avalanches are a very realistic threat to all of us that ride in the mountains. Of of the best ways to stay safe is to be prepared and the first step in that is to take a course. Sean Fraser of Hyland Backcountry will be hosting an avalanche course on December 9th and 10th. This is a two day course, one in the classroom and one out in the field. If you are interested please chech out the website and contact them, there are limited spaces available.
