Nearly 3,000 snowmobile clubs exist across the United States and Canada. The International Snowmobile Council (ISC), formed in 1973, provides a forum for communication among these groups.

Snowmobile clubs participate in numerous recreational and community service programs. They develop and maintain public trails, sponsor snowmobile safaris, and conduct maintenance clinics. In some states, they also assist with organized search and rescue units, as well as help conservation officers in emergency wildlife feeding activities.

  • There are over 225,000 miles of groomed and marked snowmobile trails in North America. These trails have been developed by volunteer clubs working with local governments and private landowners.
  • Worldwide, over 3,000 snowmobile clubs are involved in trail grooming.
  • In Michigan, over 6,400 miles of designated groomed snowmobile trails are maintained by a fleet of over 150 trail groomers.
