Thank You First Choice Truck & Car Wash for your Sponsorship


A special thank you to our First Choice Truck & Car Wash Annual Sponsor for our snow cat.

We are pretty pumped to be sharing our sponsor’s names for the Season Sponsorship Program. We want to thank all of our sponsors who have supported us in the past and throughout our season. The snow cat is our older cat, but it is strong and keeps working hard for us. Thank you to the Town of Whitecourt for our storage of the cats and all the help you do for us with the maintenance. In addition, thank you Woodlands County for our winter storage. First Choice Truck and Car Wash are great supporters of ours and it’s fitting that they are our first “Season Sponsors” for this cat. Wayne has helped us out on the cat many seasons and Fred well there’s a seat for you too. Thanks again for your support.
We are waiting for the snow and we will get out there and do what we do best – groom. See you out there soon.

All trails closed in Alberta for OHV due to Fire Ban and Covid 19


The Government issued a temporary fire ban and a ban on off-highway vehicle use within Fire Protection Areas. Both take effect on April 15th. They are wanting to limit human caused wildfires during the pandemic and believe both will peak about the same time.

PLEASE NOTE: OHV = sleds (confirmed by ABP&E)
