    Welcome to the Benton County Snowmobile Club.

    The mission of the Benton County Snowmobile Club is to groom and maintain safe trails within the county for all snowmobilers to use and enjoy, to promote comradery among our fellow snowmobilers, to perpetuate our sport through youth training and to promote and maintain goodwill with the landowners that allow us to cross their lands.

    TRAIL UPDATES

    1/26/2024 Nobody needs us to tell them our trails won't be usable anytime soon. With that being said, we would still like to remind everyone that our trail systems across the state rely on our landowners. Over the course of the off-season we had to reroute several sections of our trail. Reroutes occur for several reasons. Perhaps the land changed hands and the new owner didn't want us on his property. Perhaps the reroute occurred to make it easier for the groomer operators to groom the trail. But the most distressing reason of all is when a landowner gets fed up with TRESPASSERS and says enough is enough and bars us from crossing their land. As we said earlier, we did have some reroutes over the off-season. As always, FOLLOW THE POSTED SIGNS AND DON'T TRESPASS! See below for the Minnesota trespassing statute. 

    Just a few tidbits: Snowmobiler profile - The average age of a snowmobiler is 53 years old - The average snowmobiler spends $2500 each year on snowmobile related recreation. - 50% of snowmobilers trailer their snowmobiles to ride. 50% ride from their primary residence or have a vacation home where they keep and use their snowmobiles - Snowmobilers are caring neighbors, they raise over $3 million annually - There are over 3000+ snowmobile clubs worldwide, involved in trail grooming, charity fund raising, and family activities - There are over 42 registered non-profit associations representing snowmobilers in the US, Canada, Europe and Russia - Snowmobiling is great exercise bringing people outdoors interacting with nature and each other. It is an invigorating sport, great for stress release and good mental health.

    The next meeting of the BCSC is on Tuesday February 13, 2024 at the St. Cloud East Side VFW Post 4847 located at 104 Franklin Ave NE. Social begins at 6:00pm, meeting begins at 7:00pm. 

    Remember, and this is very important. STAY ON THE TRAILS! ALL IT TAKES IS ONE OR TWO BAD SEEDS TO RUIN IT FOR ALL OF US. TRESPASSING ISSUES WILL BE TURNED OVER TO THE BENTON COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT! Per MN Statue 84.775: First offense is now $250 second offense $500 and subsequent offenses are $1000. STAY ON THE TRAILS! This issue is not limited to our trails. Trespassing has become a state wide problem! STAY ON THE TRAILS OR WE COULD LOSE THEM!

    PLEASE NOTE: Due to a $10.00 increase in dues at MnUSA, our dues have also been increased by $10.00. Club membership is now $45.00. Please don't let the increase discourage you from joining our club. Remember that our dedicated volunteers work very hard to provide the best trails in central Minnesota.

    Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Youth Safety Training scheduled for Saturday February 3, 2024 in Gilman, MN has been cancelled. Hopefully next season, Mother Nature will cooperate and provide the much needed snow and ice that our state  and many of our fellow citizens rely on to get through our winters.
