Georgian Bay Snowriders is a 100% VOLUNTEER club of over 30 active members.
Without the efforts of these volunteers, we wouldn't have any trails.
Volunteers sign, stake, cut trails, organize events and run training seminars.
Some attend monthly club meetings, district meetings, conferences and training seminars.
Many volunteers work to obtain permission from over 100 landowners for use of their land,
while maintaining positive and appreciative relationships with these critical partners.
Volunteers organize local grooming schedules, maintain the groomers and club equipment.
Most of our volunteers work full-time, and yet they still offer their time
to Georgian Bay Snowriders for the benefit of all trail riders.
We are also very appreciative of our Landowners.
Without their generosity, we would not have a trail system to appreciate every winter.
Please show your appreciation to our landowners by remaining on marked trails at all times.
Please consider becoming a Volunteer for with Georgian Bay Snowriders Club, we would love your input.
