Well guys and gals,
Although the summer and fall were pretty dreary all around, winter is shaping up nicely so far. Fingers crossed we continue to get more cold and snow so we can get the trails ready early this year. This newsletter has a lot of important information on our upcoming year. If you'd like this sent right to your email please visit www. snodrifters.ca and sign up.
We are looking for a few more volunteers for our trail maintenance. Please let us know if you are interested in joining our crew of hard-working, sled-riding members that make the trails as great as they are every year.
