Welcome to the Petoskey Snowmobile Club
We do NOT rent snowmobiles, sorry
Please people be careful out there, Groomers have the right of way and run day or night.
Not a lot happens in the summertime for the club other than the "obligatory" monthly meeting to approve bill payments.
Our upcoming meeting on the 9th will likely be just that.
I wanted to also mention that while all of you out there are social distancing and getting out and doing stuff, we are always in need of brushing. It should be considered a year round activity. Cutting saplings back, briars, downed limbs and trees if you are capable. Please track your time on the work part as we get reimbursed for maintenance on the trails.
Summer will be over in a blink of an eye for many, and early fall will bring membership renewals. The past couple years we haven't been charging for memberships, but if you want to donate, we won't refuse it. We did the free memberships in hopes that we could garner more support--"why pay to work?" was a question we heard. We need bodies. We need workers. We need to keep this sport alive. If you want YOUR trails nice, we need YOUR work. We are short groomer operators. We need volunteers to help with breakfasts on the weekends. We need people to recruit new members to help keep this sport alive and YOUR trails open and ride able.
If you have ideas, bring them to a meeting. Send us a message. Get involved.
In the meantime, stay safe, and keep washing those hands!

General Club Meeting:
Tuesday June 9, 2020
7:00pm at the clubhouse.
For more information or reserve the club house call Jim or Teresa at 231-347-7279
Club meetings are the second and forth Tuesday of each month. 7pm at the Clubhouse. Don't know where our clubhouse is?
We are actually on the south side of Evergreen Trail at the intersection of Cedar Valley Rd.
Did you know...
The cost to groom 1 (one) mile of trail is $5.13? If you divide that $5.13 into the $48 trail permit cost, you will see that after you have ridden just a few short miles the $48 spent on the permit has been used up. This is the cheapest part of your snowmobiling budget yet goes a long ways to support the Michigan Grant Sponsors that help groom YOUR trails.
Trail permits are $48.00 for the 2020 season.
Many of our trails cross or go through private land. We want to keep these trails open! Please be respectful of property owners and STAY ON THE TRAIL. These trails are a privilege and not a right. Obey all traffic laws and be careful crossing roads.
Remember to move out of the way of the groomers, you can maneuver much easier than they can. Join a club and participate in some of the events they sponsor throughout the year. As more people participate, the job of keeping our trails in great condition becomes easier for everyone. All groomer operators in our club and most are strictly volunteers. We receive no pay for our time. We do it for the love of the sport and to provide our area with nice smooth trails. We ride and groom our trails. Your thumbs up and support of a club goes a long way.
The mission of the Petoskey Snowmobile Club is to promote the sport of snowmobiling! Through the use of our membership, grooming operations and affiliation with the Michigan DNR and Michigan Snowmobiling Association, we strive to promote all aspects of the sport. We encourage all snowmobilers to ride in a friendly and safe manner.
The Petoskey Snowmobile Clubhouse is available to rent! See the Rentals page for more information.
The Petoskey Snowmobile Club is a participant in the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Grant Sponsor Program and is a member of the Michigan Snowmobile Association. We currently operate two trail groomers and maintain 78 miles of trail.Back to Top
