Snowmobiling On the Trails in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia
New Groomer for 2014
Welcome to the Cumberland Snowmobile Club’s official website. It is shaping up to be a long snowy winter this year and if you’re visiting this site, chances are you’ll be spending a lot of time enjoying our scenic trail system. We are a volunteer-run club and we make our best effort to maintain and groom over 500 kilometers of snowmobile trails that traverse both Cumberland and Colchester counties.
This season, we are very proud to announce that we recently took delivery of a brand new John Deere groomer with a Gilbert track system. Our volunteer groomer operators are anxious to get out on the trails and get them in optimum shape for the best sledding.
Please stop by our newly renovated clubhouse. Patsy and Melissa are cooking great breakfasts, burgers, soups, chili and specials for hungry snowmobilers. The canteen and gas bar are open Fridays from 3-9, Saturday 8-6 and Sundays 10-4. We are offering high octane gas at the pump for $1.75/litre. Also new this year, we are able to take payment for gas and food purchases with debit, credit and always cash. Members enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi at the clubhouse and a passcode to access the clubhouse in urgent situations after hours.
Generally our membership roster is just over 100 members in good standing. If you enjoy our trail system and like the direction we are headed, consider joining our club. We accept online payments for club memberships and trail permits via PayPal here on the website, you can purchase them at the clubhouse canteen during operating hours or you can contact one of our directors for more information. A regular membership to the club is only $25. We are offering V.I.P. memberships for $100 if you are able to contribute a bit extra towards the new groomer. Our meetings are held the first Saturday of the month at 7 p.m. and we encourage all to attend and participate.
As always, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our tireless volunteers keeping the club running. We are grateful to our Gold and Silver Groomer Sponsors and V.I.P. Members – without them, we could not have accomplished financially what we did in this past year. Also, we would be remiss not to mention our volunteer groomer operators. They work long hours during snowmobile season to make the trails smoother for us – often sacrificing their own snowmobiling hours or family time.
Happy trails and safe sledding!
Greg Morash, President
