Wasaga Snowmobile Club History:
The Wasaga Snowmobile Club dates back to the early sixties
when people of the region longed for an escape
from the hum drum of a long cold winter with little
to do. With Wasaga not having it's own ski hill
and not much spillover from the nearby ski hill
visitors coming to town, it was a challenge for
local business to find a way to keep things going
throughout the winter months.
Sledding in the region became a focal point of activity giving
locals the opportunity to get out and enjoy the
white abundance of snow that we receive annually.
Gathering at local establishments and drawing
more and more people to it each weekend, the sport
soon took off with people who normally only spent
summers at the beach coming back in the winter
months to experience what Wasaga has to offer.
With it's parabolic sand dunes and expansive summer road
trail system, people soon figured that snowmobilers
had a great place to ride right here in town.
Marinas and fuel stations quickly realized that
there was a need for dealerships and maintenance
facilities in this region, so by the early seventies
there were 9 dealerships within the Town of Wasaga
Beach. We were well on our way to playing a major
role in the organization of the sport across the
In 1971, one of the first ever annual general meetings of
what is now the governing body of snowmobiling
in the province (OFSC - Ontario Federation os
Snowmobile Clubs) was held in Wasaga. It was a
big hit with it's fashion and sled show and clubs
from all over the province were in attendance.
Throughout the next decade Wasaga was the hot
spot for snowmobile racing both in the winter
and in the summer, with it's first ever dune grass
As we progressed, the Wasaga Club has always been at the
forefront of supporting the prograssion of the
sport to where we are today. We are honoured to
have recently received the Ontario Club of the
year and the Club of Canada awards. We pay homage
to all those who have had the foresight and the
dedication to see our club through to this great
honour. Our volunteers are still dedicated and
work hard every season to provide the best riding
possible for all who ride in this region.
When in the area please enjoy the ride and remember the history
and volunteers that make it all possible.
