CLUB RIDES

The Coeur d'Alene Snowmobile Club is an active over the snow user group that seeks adventure in the winter time. Our club members ride all different levels, terrains and machines. We just want to get out and enjoy the snow, oh and of course, see the beautiful mountain and lake views. 

We are committed to safety and we always account for and help everyone that joins the group. We plan off-trail and groomed trail rides. Plan for a full day and adventure on all of our rides!  We typically ride every weekend predominately in North Idaho, but we do plan & implement rides out of town. 

Our scheduled club rides will be located in our event calendar. We generally plan a trip to McCall in February and host a Family Night Ride. Since Mother Nature can be unpredictable, much of our riding is unscheduled, please join our Facebook Group page to get notified.

Note: For those considering joining our club, we welcome you. If you decide to join a CLUB RIDE, we must require a signed liability waiver which will be provided before the ride.  


Our Tracks Don't Last !!!





KOOTENAI COUNTY GROOMER PROGRAM

Kootenai Country has three groomers that leave from each of the 3 main trail heads, Fernan, Bunco & 4th of July. Grooming occurs twice weekly, weather permitting and can occur up to April 15th per Forest Service guidelines. There is not a specific schedule of which trails are groomed, but is based on the conditions of the day, and operator of the groomer. If you want to know specific conditions of the trails, we recommend joining our FaceBook group page and ask local riders
