    The 2017 WSSA Expo is in the books! We had a big crowd this year, and in spite of the weather the swap meet was full of great deals.



    Dick's 66' 560D Arctic Cat set the bar high and claimed 1st place




    Ray's Massey Ferguson wooed the crowds and earned 2nd place in the votes. Congrats to them both!

    Anyone interested in a very rare sled for these parts?  Jason in Bend, Oregon is selling it.  He is asking $500, but willing to listen to a resonable offer.  There are more pictures, and the contact information on David's Vintage Sleds: http://davidsleds2.mysite.com/PAGE_23078D.html

    I received my WSSA dues reminder this week and felt that a website post was in order. It can be easy to overlook the importance of our state snowmobile association, since much of their work and accomplishments occur in the background. Between representing our sport politically, coordinating major events like the Powersports Expo, educating the public on snowmobile safety, and much much more, WSSA is the cornerstone of keeping snowmobiling viable in the state of Washington. Show your support by continuing your membership this season, or joining if you are not yet a member.

  • WSSA Items of Interest

    Posted on 08/16/17 at 08:56 PM

    Greetings WSSA!

    Let me take a minute and pass on a few things that have come through my e-mail inbox.

    First off, this weekend (Aug 18-20) marks the WSSA Summer Meeting and Campout.  While there are likely no campsites available, you are invited to join us for the weekend's activities.  We'll have a chili feed and meet and greet on Friday night.  The meeting starts at 9am on Saturday after breakfast (approx. 8am).  After the meeting concludes mid-afternoon, we'll have a couple of fundraisers (selling root beer floats and a rubber ducky race in the river) to support the Political Action Committee and the Legal Action Fund.  We'll cap the day with a potluck dinner (WSSA supplies the meat).  Feel free to join us for all or part of the day; it will be a fun time and you'll be updated on what to expect for the 2017/18 snowmobile season.  (Meals on Saturday will be $5 each for breakfast and lunch, and $10 for dinner.)  The location is the Blu-Shastin RV Park on the north side of Blewett Pass near the town of Peshastin.  (Look 'em up online and call them if you are interested in camping... they *might* have a empty site.) 

    Check out the latest news from the American Council of Snowmobile Associations.  Their August news can be found by clicking 

    Polaris recently sent out a survey to find out a little about the (snowmobile) buying habits of snowmobilers.  They aren't looking for any personal info.  If you'd like to participate, you can find it at 

    Washington State Parks is seeking a couple of individuals for the Snowmobile Advisory Committee (SMAC).  The committee convenes semi-annually and advises State Parks on program policy, funding priorities and issues related to trail grooming, snow-removal sanitation, education and enforcement.  The committee will have two vacancies this fall.  One must be filled by a resident of Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Lincoln or Spokane County, and the other by a resident of Adams, Whitman, Franklin, Walla Walla, Columbia, Garfield or Asotin County.  Nominations must be received by Aug. 30, 2017. New appointments begin Oct. 1, for a term of three years.  To send nominations or request an application, contact the Winter Recreation Program at 
    winter@parks.wa.gov, P.O. Box 42650, Olympia, WA 98504-2650, or the Washington Telecommunications Relay Service, (800) 833-6388. For more information on nominations, call (360) 902-8684.
