Membership Benefits

By joining the Golden Snowmobile Club, you are choosing to support snowmobiling in BC and ensure that we have areas to ride for future generations.  So while many people join the club for a groomed trail there is more to snowmobile clubs than just that.  The volunteers in clubs negotiate with government to manage these areas and work hard to meet the ongoing requirements of these agreements.  There are many well-funded groups getting organized and advocating to have us removed from the backcountry.  We need to stay organized, have strong membership numbers, and support the volunteers that keep this all going so that the people that just want to ride can.

Your Club membership includes a membership in the BCSF which gives you the following benefits with our corporate partners:

  1. Capri Insurance offers members discounted Liability and Theft Insurance
  2. Sandman Hotels gives 10% off their best advertised rate to BCSF Members
  3. Best Western Sicamous, St. Ives Resort on Shuswap Lake, Hubs Motel in Wells/Barkerville, and the North Country Lodge in McBride all offer preferred rates to BCSF Members.
  4. Free Subscription to SnoRiders Magazine
  5. BMO MasterCard offers a special BCSF rewards MasterCard
  6. Mark’s Work Wear House offers our members 10% off their purchases
  7. Discounts with several AST 1 providers including Zacs Tracs, Trigger Point and Hangfire.  Ask your AST provider if they provide a discount when you register


Get Involved

Your local club has many opportunities to get involved. You could volunteer to be a Director, help with an

advertising campaign, provide some accounting advice, fix a piece of equipment, repair a shelter, work

a snow show booth, or just step up and cook hotdogs at an event. Clubs are driven by volunteers and

everything you see or do while riding is as a result of someone having volunteered their time. Contact your

club or attend a meeting if you want to help.


Tell your friends.....Share the Love

The more we support our local snowmobile clubs the better our riding areas will be. There is proven

strength in numbers. Members provide a defendable position in the case of a proposed closure. It provides

necessary financial resource for your club and BCSF to represent our sport and be a strong voice. Added

to this your club invests their membership money back into your riding areas and community. Clubs create

jobs, tourism, and winter economic benefit while giving back in many ways through fundraisers for other

organizations or local families.
