K.S.A. 2021 Update
03 November 2021 – Klondike Snowmobile Association
Another snowmobiling season is almost here, and we are ready!
The Klondike Snowmobile Association held our Annual General Meeting on 01 November 2021. Thank you to everyone who attended and congratulations to the new and returning members of the 2021/2022 Board of Directors!
We are pleased to report that the Klondike Snowmobile Association had another successful year during 2020/2021, and we are ready for 2021/2022.
We continue to be financially stable thanks to a combination of grants and membership fees, which sets us up nicely for the coming season. Our equipment required some repairs but for the most part is now serviceable and ready for the winter.
Our membership numbers are looking healthy and we continue to offer some of the best membership benefits around. Without our members our work would be impossible, so thank you for your continued support and please continue to spread the word about what we do and the membership benefits we offer.
We completed several trail projects this summer, mainly clean up, signage and brushing projects. We will be working on more of these next summer, if you are interested in volunteering to help check out our volunteer page or contact us any time.
Last winter much of the Yukon was lucky enough to enjoy the most snow we’ve had in years. Our volunteers spent hundreds of hours grooming multi-use trails last winter, and when the snow comes this year we are ready to do it again! Our trail conditions page will be going live again later this month, so please make use of it when planning your rides and please help us keep it up to date by reporting trail conditions to us after your ride. Trail condition reports can be done fast and easy directly through our website using the form at the bottom of the trail conditions page.
Last season our events were somewhat limited due to covid-19 restrictions, however we managed to get in a few small group snowmobile rides. We look forward to hosting more group rides this winter, keep an eye on our events page for details. We will be following any covid-19 recommendations in place at the time of the events. If you have any ideas or suggestions for a group ride please let us know!
The Klondike Snowmobile Association also maintained friendly relationships with our local governments, corporate members, snowmobile dealers, and many other groups and associations over the past year. We hope to continue this as we strongly believe in the multi-use trail concept, so if there is anything we can do to help your group please let us know.
At this point we would like to extend a huge thank you to our Corporate Members for their continued support, it really does help a lot!
Also a huge thank you goes out to all of our volunteers. The Klondike Snowmobile Association is entirely volunteer operated and the vast majority of our work is done by volunteers. Summer trail brushing, winter snow grooming, signage repair and updating, equipment maintenance, government meetings and consultations, funding applications, membership sales, office work, and more, our volunteers do it all and it’s very much appreciated!
Welcome back to the K.S.A. for the 2021/2022 season – we are ready and excited for another successful year of serving Yukon snowmobilers!
