MT. ST. HELENS TRAC RIDERS SEEKING VOLUNTEERS (Jan '24) -We received the following information from the Trac Riders:
    The Mt. St. Helens Trac riders would like to extend an invitation to our annual event.  Every year we host the Washington State Blind School for an inclusive riding event that is very special to be a part of.  We invite you to come to Marble Mountain Sno-Park and join the Trac Riders for this event with the blind school staff, students, and parents.
    If you can help at this event, you will need to fill out background forms, follow this link to fill them out online: New Online Volunteer Application
    Please remember to upload a copy of your state I.D. and fill out application completely. You can optionally pick up a paper application from the WSSB campus.  Any questions, please contact Adrienne Fernandez at adrienne.fernandez@wssb.wa.gov.
    You can also contact the Mt St Helen’s Trac Riders at tracriders@gmail.com.  You can reach out to District 4 South Rep Dan Frazier at 360-749-3107 or Trac Riders Secretary Julie at 360-751-4545 with any questions, or help with the volunteer process.
    SO MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND JOIN US ON MARCH 7TH 2024!
    This is a really special day with the staff and students of the Washington State School for the Blind out of Vancouver.  If you don’t feel comfortable riding with a student, there are still many ways you can come and be involved!  It takes a lot of volunteers to make this happen, so please consider joining us - you will be glad you did!
    Everyone must fill out paperwork in advance, so please don’t wait – let Dan & Julie know you would like to attend and we will get you signed up for the March 7th 2024 event at Marble Mountain.  Thank You!


SNOW NORTHWEST - THE LATEST VERSION OF WASHINGTON HOMETOWNS SNOWMOBILE TRAIL APP - AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID & IPHONE! (Jan '22) - Washington Hometown has just released Snow NorthWest, a huge expansion of our winter recreation web maps and apps for Apple and Android. Snow NorthWest covers a larger geographic area (the whole Pacific Northwest) and has more types of activities including snowmobiling, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and snow-play areas, and businesses.
    More areas can be downloaded for offline navigation. There are now 19 downloadable regions covering all types of snow recreation. Download one or more regions before you hit the trail and enjoy peace of mind. No more worries about cell towers or smartphone connections on the trail.
    New colors and styles make it easier to find the right trail for you. Winter trails now have a black halo so they stand out better. Snowmobile trails are orange so they cannot be confused with closed areas and trails. Ungroomed trails use the same colors with hash marks. Recreation land is coded to help you understand the rules; green (snowmobiles allowed off-trail or use unknown), light yellow (snowmobiles must stay on roads or trails), dark yellow (snowmobiles must stay on groomed trails), light red (non-motorized area), and deep red (the area is closed to all uses including fire closures.
    Be sure to check out the other recreation map and app offerings from Washington Hometown by clicking here.  
HELP SPREAD THE WORD TO THE TRACKED ATV/UTV COMMUNITY 
(Nov '21) -   Step one was creating a path for the tracked ATV/UTV community to legally use our groomed trails.  Step two is helping educate them on what they need to do to be legal and how to better interact with their fellow snowmobilers.  WSSA has created a one-page sheet with pertinent information.  We'd like to see these posted in sno-parks, warming huts, at dealers, and anywhere else you think they might be useful.  In time we hope to have laminated copies available, but for now, we encourage you to download the PDF and print as many as you need.  Click here for the 'Got Tracks' info sheet.     

IS YOUR SNOWMOBILE CLUB THRIVING? (Dec '17) - At the November WSSA Leadership Meeting, Jon Ferrian, WSSA's Safety Chair/NWAC Board member/member of multiple clubs, presented a PowerPoint presentation on building and maintaining a thriving club.  Check it out and see if there are ideas in it for you.  (Do you have something to add? If so, let us know!)  Click here for the presentation.
