Since 1971 the Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association has been dedicated to providing strong leadership and support to members and member clubs, to promoting and encouraging the enjoyment of recreational snowmobiling, and to establishing and maintaining quality snowmobile trails which are to be used in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
Over 10,500 kilometers of trails have been built by SSA members. Our vision is to be leaders in the recreational sport of snowmobiling with a vision of where the organization is going and the values to be practiced along the way. To pass on to all clubs and members a shared ownership for this vision and to facilitate the desired results in a productive and rewarding environment. To enable our clubs to succeed and applaud them when they do. Consistently demonstrate and inspire our clubs and members, respect, trust and a positive, helpful attitude.

“A key factor in the preservation of Saskatchewan’s snowmobile trail system is the ability to recruit “the right people” for the many volunteer roles that each snowmobile club has to offer. Our goal is to provide fun and challenging volunteer positions. In order to keep our snowmobile trails safe – we depend on volunteers.”
The SSA Board of Directors
As an association that depends primarily on adult volunteers to deliver safe snowmobile trails for our younger generation, it is important that the association focuses on the needs of the volunteer. We want to find adults that have the skills and willingness, then we can adapt these skills where needed.
The Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association has a toll free line 1-800-499-7533 for volunteers to phone Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook! Friendly and competent staff will provide assistance for volunteers working for member snowmobile clubs. You can also simply reach out to your local club and they will get you on your way!
The Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association offers online Risk Management training which includes Groomer Operator training, Trail Signing training, and Workplace Safety training including WHMIS training. Volunteers that complete the training will receive certification for each module they complete.
The Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association is very happy that you have come to this page of our web site and are interested in becoming a snowmobile volunteer with a snowmobile club in your area.
The volunteer screening questions are designed to gather information about yourself that will tell us what you like to do and what your past experiences have been. This information will help determine what volunteer positions would best suit your interests.
You do not have to be a snowmobiler to belong to a snowmobile club. Snowmobile clubs organize many functions that benefit your local community. You can become a part of this and make your town or community a much better place to live because of what you contribute.
