Club History The Mt. Shasta Sno-Mobilers, Inc. was formed in 1973 and received it’s nonprofit status in 1996. Since the Club was formed, it has been involved with Scholarship programs, donating to community services and business, volunteer programs, snowmobile poker runs, snowmobile safety courses and hosting local 4-H snowmobile rides. The Mt. Shasta Sno-Mobile Club has been a major contributing factor in the development and management of the Tri-Forest Snowmobile Area. Working closely with local Forest Service and the State OHV (Off Highway Vehicle) Program, the Tri-Forest Snowmobile Area covers over 260 miles of groomed snowmobile trails on the Klamath, Modoc, and Shasta-Trinity National Forests. The Area also supports four Snowmobile Trailheads (Deer Mountain/Chuck Best Memorial Snowmobile Park, 4-Corners, Doorknob, and Pilgrim Creek) with warming huts, restrooms, loading ramps, parking and RV areas. As of March 2004, the visitor count for the Area was over 4100, which exceeds the total from the previous year. The Snowmobile Parks have shown an increase of winter recreation by non-snowmobile activities such as skiers, snow shoers, dog sledders and family snow play. The Club also sponsors Club Rides, Night Rides, Potlucks, Family/Kids Rides, overnight camping, snowmobile safety courses and has an annual no charge Christmas Breakfast at the Chuck Best Warming Hut. During the summer we have work days where we clean and mark trails, cut wood and stack it in sheds for winter use and enjoy overnight camping. The Club has been an active supporter of CNSA (California/Nevada Snowmobile Assoc.), the BlueRibbon Coalition, People for the USA, the Klamath Alliance for Resources & Environment, and other local snowmobile clubs. The Club also joined the California Adopt-A-Highway Program in July 1997 and cleans a two mile stretch of Highway 97 just south of A12. In 2003 the Club was awarded “Volunteer of the Year” on behalf of the California Adopt-A-Highway Program.
