  • This Years Riding Events

    Posted on 11/23/20 at 08:49 PM

    The Pacific Northwest Vintage Snowmobile Club is planning to be active this winter season and we are looking forward to getting out on the snow. We do have an obligation to do our part to help keep our members safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and therefore must comply with state mandates where we are riding. We will also be limiting our attendance at larger events and instead focus on smaller rides among groups that have regular contact. If you have any questions regarding the ongoing COVID-19 situation, please visit the health department websites below.

    NOAA is predicting a great snow season for us in their 2020-21 Winter Outlook due to a persistent La Nina climate pattern, so let’s make the best of it and ride!

    Despite all of our antique and vintage snowmobile events getting cancelled, that could not stop us enjoying time together. A group of club members got together to enjoy a weekend of camping along the Entiat River in central Washington. It was a great time, with wonderful weather, great company, and fantastic scenery. Wish we all could have made it. Soon enough we will be together riding our old sleds in a winter wonderland.

  • WSSA Puyallup Expo and Swap Meet Canceled

    Posted on 07/22/20 at 04:19 AM

    It is official, the 2020 Washington State Snowmobile Association (WSSA) October Expo and Swap meet is canceled.  Wow, what a year:

    Greetings WSSA! 

    This probably won't come as a complete shock, but the WSSA Expo in Puyallup is cancelled for 2020 due to the uncertainty of COVID. 

    After the Puyallup Fair announced their cancellation, the writing was on the wall for our event. It has now been confirmed. We are in the process of securing our dates for the 2021 Expo. 

    On a related note, WSSA's Summer Meeting & Campout at Blu Shastin and October's (Oktoberfest) meeting in Leavenworth have also been cancelled and will be replaced with electronic meetings.

    SSA Publicity Secretary

  • Whistlin' Jack Lodge Sign Pick Up

    Posted on 06/17/20 at 09:21 PM

    There was still snow in the mountains when Stephen and Kevin spent a couple weekends picking up the directional signs from Taneum Sno-Park by Cle Elum to Whistlin’ Jack Lodge.  Our club sets out the signs to mark a trail to the lodge, and back.  Then we run the same route on our vintage sleds during a two-day, 140-mile round trip ride.  We know that some of the signs will be stolen, or vandalized each year.  Unfortunately this year the loss was worse, but they will be replaced.  By the fall the signs will be ready for us to mark the route again next season.

  • New Past Event - Snowmobiling in May!

    Posted on 05/16/20 at 10:12 PM

    Ed and Marlane win the Latest Vintage Ride recognition award this year!  They went to the Lone Butte Sno-Park in the Giffford-Pinchot National Forest at Mt. Adams last weekend.  It was 80 degrees but still enough snow to ride the trails, and some off trail.  He got 10-miles on the Ski Daddler. :)  I think he's got a plan for what to ride on next year Whistlin' Jack trip.
