Volunteers still needed!

Volunteers still needed!


The snow is here, and many of our trails are open, but we still need volunteers to help clear some trails or help with events. Whether you have a few hours, or a day here and there to help out, we really want to hear from you!

If clearing trails or trail marking and signage isn’t your thing, there are lots of other opportunities to get involved and meet new people. Organizers or staff for events such as our poker run, or people to help manage other club affairs are needed too. Just let us know your skills or interests!

Volunteering for the club is a great way to meet like-minded people, make friends – and is also a fun way for high school students to get their volunteer hours!

For more information, please contact us. We look forward to meeting you!

Pisten Bully Groomer Fire

Pisten Bully Groomer Fire

As many of you will already know, we lost our Pisten Bully groomer to a mechanical fire on New Years Eve. What is left of the groomer has been shipped to Barrie and we are trying to settle an insurance claim and secure a replacement groomer as quickly as possible. We have a new replacement on standby, but of course this cannot be shipped to us until insurance is settled.

Many thanks to Greg, who has had to deal with this unfortunate incident, and all of our groomer operators, who will be working hard to try to keep trails maintained until we have this crucial piece of equipment replaced. We ask you to be patient if the trails are not up to the standard we’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy recently. It is frustrating for all of us with the great snowfall we’ve been receiving!

For more information, and updates on the groomer and grooming, please visit Trail Talk in our forums.

Getting Ready for 2012-13 Season

Trail preparation is well under way for the 2012-2013 season. Several small teams of our intrepid  volunteers made big strides last weekend, completing opening of the trail near Pinto Valley Ranch, and clearing brush along the Carp Ridge and in the old Crazy Horse / Holland Hill areas. There’s still lots to do to get ready for this season though, so we encourage you to get in touch with Ted Kelly, our volunteer coordinator for 2012-2013. Last year was a good year for snowmobiling in West Carleton, considering the limited white stuff on the ground, and this would not have been possible without our volunteers. Please help make the trails in your area even better this year by offering upo a few hours of your time!

Trail status

West Carleton trails are still closed – however, we have started packing our trails and will continue this and hope to get the trails to LIMITED next week.

Trail Updates

We’re taking full advantage of the unusually warm December weather to clear some new trails. If you’d like to help us make this season the best ever, please go to our volunteers section and see how you can help!

Trail Conditions

Hi Everyone,
So far still no snow and still no frost in the ground. We need to be patient and we hope that the weather forecast is right, lots of snow in January. So get your snowmobile ready, buy a permit and the renewal sticker so that you are good to go out when the snow arrives.

West Carleton snowmobile trails are now closed

We would like to thank the countless landowners, volunteers, permit holders and supporters of the West Carleton Snowmobile trails for making this another great snowmobile season. Despite mother nature challenging us with a mixed bag of weather this year, we’ve had feedback that our trails were in possibly the best condition in years. With your support, we are committed to trying to make even more improvements for the 2011/2012 snowmobile season!
