“On the Trail” Updates


We have been out and about on the trails the past couple of months – inspecting, planning, cleaning, hanging signs, building structures for the rest areas and prepping for the season. Thank you to everyone who makes this all happen from meetings to promotions to hands on activities. Without all of these pre-season steps, we can’t start grooming when the snow arrives. If you are interested in helping with wood splitting/stocking, moving buildings, trail cleaning and rest area cleaning, please contact us and we will add your name to the work bee lists.  Please don’t hesitate to chat with our Executive Team or Trail Adoptees if you can lend a hand, even for a day.

Thank you to our Trail Adoptees & your crews for your commitment to trail cleaning: Don Price, David MacLeod, Chet Brewster, Doug Hay, Darrell Grenier, Darrell Strebchuk, Dominic Minty, Derek Rooks, Dave Bradley, Greg Anderson, Jason Forseille, Aaron Munro, Leroy Roth, Trevor Kenyon, Rob Pastoor, Kyle Soderquist and Dave Bilau.  A special thank you to our Trail Bosses (Dave Bilau-South, Doug Hay-NW and David MacLeod-NE) who ensure we are ready for grooming and sledding. 

Congratulations to the Club and Members on Your Award


Congratulations to the Whitecourt Trailblazers Club & Members

Great job everyone on the award.  We received the recognition at the Alberta Snowmobile Association Excellence Awards Ceremony, held October 14th in Edmonton.  It was a big surprise, but certainly appreciated.   We are always trying to adapt to snow conditions and happenings around us; some of which are out of our control.  We look forward to having a wonderful-snow filled season.  Great work to everyone involved!!  When you purchase an ASA Membership Trail Pass, you support us as well.  Please consider purchasing your passes annually.

ASA Excellence Awards – Outstanding Snowmobiler of the Year – Jeff Brooks

Looking for Trail Adoptees in the N/E Section


Every year we trail clean from fall to winter.  We have trails that folks have adopted to clean and typically only required once, with the odd tree down after.   We have found that groups go out and clean when they can as every adoptee and trail is unique.  In addition, we do hold work bees as well – since not all trails are adopted or groups are unable to get out. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us.  We are inviting all adoptees to our General Meeting – October 19th.  Our Safety Director – Denis Blain is hosting a safety presentation and will provide trail cleaning information.  Please plan to attend, if you are interested in finding out more.

TIME:    7:30pm – 8:30pm
