K.S.A. Volunteer Work

 

The Klondike Snowmobile Association is very much a volunteer based organization, and we are very proud of our volunteers and the variety of volunteering awards they have won in recent years. Without volunteers there would be no K.S.A. Although volunteering is completely optional when you join the K.S.A., we do kindly ask our membership to come out and help when they can. Over the past several years most of our work has been done by only a few of our members, so any extra help is greatly appreciated.

Below is a list of projects we are looking for volunteers to help with.  If you are interested in helping with any of them please contact us via e-mail at klonsnow@yknet.ca , 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 Brushing
Several multi-use trails in the Whitehorse area have become overgrown and require a couple hours of bush trimming, signage updating, and other general upkeep. We can take the lead however more helping hands are required! We regularly head out on a variety of days and times so anyone interested in helping out please contact the K.S.A. at klonsnow@yknet.ca or phone 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 a year to help find other volunteers and lead them out on trail projects, mostly brushing, putting up signs, etc.  Anyone interested please contact the K.S.A. at klonsnow@yknet.ca or phone 867 667 7680.

 

Event Organizers Wanted
Do you have an idea for a group snowmobile event? Why not make it an official 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 klonsnow@yknet.ca or phone 867 667 7680.

 

Poker Run Organizers and Volunteers Wanted
Over the past couple years one of the most common themes in the “What would you like to see the K.S.A. do this year?” section of our membership form has been bring the annual poker run back. This event was not held over the last couple years because of bylaw concerns within Whitehorse and a lack of volunteers to set up the venue, prizes and card stations. We would love to bring it back using a venue and route either in Whitehorse or just outside of Whitehorse, but we would need someone to help plan and organize it and we need volunteers to run it. If you are interested in doing so please let us know at klonsnow@yknet.ca or phone 867 667 7680.

 

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 out 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 klonsnow@yknet.ca or 867 667 7680.
