The Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club’s Gord Bushell, centre, poses with Carl Kuster and Marshall Kronewitt of Carl Kuster Mountain Park next to a new Ski-Doo recently donated to the club by Kuster and Bombardier Recreational Products. The sled is being used to help with trail and cabin maintenance, as well as to monitor the local sledding areas marked for caribou habitat. “The Sicamous club does an amazing job to keep the trails in top condition,” said Kuster. “Gord Bushell and other volunteers donate so much of their time and it’s a lot to ask for them to have to put extra kilometres on their personal sleds each year. Plus having an extra sled to help out with caribou monitoring on Queest and for cabin maintenance is good for all of us.”

The Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club is a non-profit society that works to promote the sport of snowmobiling in the area of Sicamous.  The areas they maintain and monitor are Blue Lake, Eagle Pass, Owlhead, and Queest. Check SledSicamous.com for grooming and snow reports.
