And just like that you can get your 2018-19 Golden Snowmobile Club membership.  Maybe it’s the smoke, maybe it’s the cooler temperatures, but we can’t wait to get out on the snow this winter.

We have made a few changes to our membership this year.  Membership rates have increased slightly to parallel the membership rates of nearby BC clubs. We also changed our membership structure to match other BC clubs, by removing the family pass and adding a “2nd Adult” pass for families.  If you’ve got a Golden area address, swing by Mountain Motorsports or MotorTech to get our locals discount code.

New this winter you can get a “Golden Ticket” – a loyalty pass that gets you a $5 discount on a day pass each time you ride, instead of the unlimited free riding you get with the club membership pass.

In case you need any more convincing, here are our top 7 reasons to be a club member this winter…

  1.  Unlimited Pow Shredding – when you’re a club member you enjoy unlimited riding at our three managed areas.  Just flash your pass at the gate kiosk and you’re in.  Fast-tracked past the gate, fast-tracked to the alpine!
  2. Great early season riding – Golden is often one of the first places to hit the snow and this year we’re investing $45,000 in trail work near Quartz Creek to improve early season access to the Quartz Cabin and flatten West Bench Trail so we can groom the entire length much earlier in the season.
  3. Two new areas – We are super stoked to announce that we’ll be grooming two new areas near Quartz Creek this winter – Old Man and East Quartz. The access trails are being pushed in this fall so we can ride those bowls this winter.
  4. Make Golden Great (period) – club membership funds groom trails, plow roads and parking areas, build cabins and keep the club healthy.
  5. Get Conditions Reports in your Inbox – we send our weekly conditions reports out to all of our members all winter.  Save yourself a trip to the website and get all the details in your inbox.
  6. Early access to club events – Get priority information, registration access, and discounts to club events including Avalanche Awareness Days, the Riley Suhan Invitational Backcountry Snowmobile Race, and GT or Die.
  7. Avalanche Safety Smarts – receive discounts on Avalanche Safety courses from our preferred suppliers and access to one free AST1 course this winter.

Club members are valued volunteers and give us a strong voice in the Golden community. Whether you just want unlimited riding or you want to give a few of your hours to helping the club as a volunteer, please consider a club membership.
