K.S.A. Volunteer Work
The Klondike Snowmobile Association is a volunteer based organization, and we are very proud of our volunteers and the awards they have won in recent years. Although volunteering is completely optional when you join the K.S.A., we do kindly ask our members to come out and help when they can.
Below is a list of projects we are looking for volunteers to help with. If you are interested in any of them please contact us via e-mail at email@example.com , phone us at 867 667 7680, or come out to one of our monthly meetings (dates and locations are posted on our Events page).
*Although we do appreciate enthusiasm, please contact us before partaking in any trail work so we can provide some guidance on how to work within the applicable rules, regulations and standards. This is important as it prevents both you and the K.S.A. from getting into trouble with governments and other user groups.*
Trail Groomer Operators Wanted
Interested in trail grooming? We’re willing to train the right person! Over the next couple seasons we are hoping to gain a couple more skilled groomer operators to help us groom a variety of multi-use trails in and around Whitehorse. Operating a trail groomer involves several days of training and practice, and most of our grooming runs require operators to be out on the trails for several hours at a time. As a result this volunteer work is not for everyone, however it can be a very rewarding challenge for the right person. All training, equipment and gas is supplied by the K.S.A., you’ll just need a snowsuit, helmet, and time to volunteer. If you are interested please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 867 667 7680.
Volunteer Coordinators Wanted
The K.S.A. Board of Directors is entirely volunteer, and much of their time is spent going to meetings and catching up on paperwork. Unfortunately this means there’s often not enough time left to take other volunteers out on the trails and show them how to maintain and improve trails in accordance with the applicable standards. As a result we are seeking a couple of volunteer coordinators who can volunteer a couple afternoons per year to help find other volunteers and lead them out on trail projects (brushing, putting up signs, etc.) Anyone interested please contact the K.S.A. at email@example.com or phone 867 667 7680.
Summer Trail Workers Wanted
Several of the multi-use trails in the Whitehorse area have become overgrown and are in need of some brush clearing and signage updating. We plan to go out and do several trails in summer of 2018, and we are putting together an e-mail list of people who might be willing to help. If you are interested let us know and we’ll add your name to the list!
Event Organizers Wanted
Do you have an idea for a group snowmobile event? Make it a K.S.A. ride! We are always looking for people to organize some snowmobile events over the winter, so if you are interested please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 867 667 7680.
Groomer Parking Wanted
We are currently seeking a place in the Arkell/Logan/Copper Ridge/Granger area to park one of our groomers (wide track snowmobile plus grooming drag) for the winter. We do require a reasonably secure area with room to turn around and easy access to the multi-use trail system at various hours. If you have a location you’d be willing to share please let us know at email@example.com or phone 867 667 7680.
Trails Page Writers Wanted
On our website we’ve created a Yukon Trails page, featuring short write ups with some basic information about the routing and some of the history behind various multi-use trails around the Yukon. We would like to expand this page to include more trails, so if you are interested in doing a short write up about your favourite trail please do so and submit it to us! If it is suitable for our website we’ll add it to our Yukon Trails page, and if you would like the credits for your writing to appear on the page with your article just let us know and we’d be more than happy to accommodate that.
