Snowmobile Fundraising – we need your help!
Our three Alpine ll snowmobiles are nearing the end of their serviceable life. They have served us well as our go-to utility sleds towing implements and equipment to pack, clear, and groom our trails. One now has a seized motor that cannot be repaired, and the others are no longer reliable. Last year we gratefully received sufficient donations to augment our fleet with a good used snowmobile. It has helped as a rescue sled and light duty service, but we really need the utility we have had from the Alpines as a long term solution.
To better serve our members by continuing to provide world-class ski trails, we are fundraising to purchase a new snowmobile, probably like the Ski-doo Skandic pictured above as one of the very few utility sleds still being manufactured.
Once again, some extremely generous supporters of xc skiing in BC are stepping up with matching funds ($16,000) to help kick-start things for BC clubs. The $16,000 will be handed out as follows, until it’s gone:
If you’re doing the math, that’s a total contribution of $800 on the first $1,600 that the club raises… a 50% match! Donors will receive a tax receipt. To Donate now, click on the following link:

"I don't x-country ski or snowshoe at Hallis Lake very often so I'm just going to purchase a day pass when I go."
That is understandable and appreciated, but it does nothing to advance the club in its efforts to maintain and enhance the quality of the trails and facilities.
If you don't ski or snowshoe often enough to make the additional User fee pay-off, please still consider taking out a membership in the club.
As well as making you a member of Cariboo Ski-Touring Club, the $30 membership (less $10 if purchased by October 14th, or less $5 if paid between then and November 14th) you will also be supporting Cross Country BC, and Nordiq Canada (formerly Cross Country Canada) in all their efforts to support all our xc skiers and racers.
Membership in Cross Country BC and Nordiq Canada supports the development of cross country skiing in British Columbia and Canada as well as providing liability insurance coverage for activities approved by Nordiq Canada.
There is no such benefit to the $10 snowshoe membership, but both levels of membership aid our local volunteers to maintain our trails, lodge and equipment. This in turn maintains and improves the high quality of the outdoor experience you enjoy with either your day or season's pass.
So if you intend only to purchase day passes, please consider upping your level of support by taking out a yearly membership. Here is the link to online registration:

I must have done it wrong because only the snowshoe pass cost me $10?
The membership for the full season is only $30?
