CLUBHISTORY

Southern Tug Hill Sno-Riders  snowmobile club incorporated in 1993. The all volunteer club has come along way in the construction and maintenance of trails for the enjoyment and safety of snowmobilers. We have over 80 property owners - we must say “Thank You” every year for the use of their land.
