If that was true there would be extra money on no snow years and the fund would grow.They are always looking for more funds because they are not earmarked for trails.

    Not sure what you base your comments on but I have been a Funding Coordinator for our snowmobile club for 15 years. Here is a link to MNUSA that gives a quick explanation of the system. https://www.mnsnowmobiler.org/discover/trails/funding-maintainingtrails
    The GIA system disperses all the money taken in and it is up to the club to budget the funds so on no snow years you have extra money to cover the high snow years expenses all while trying to save up for purchases like Argos and $250,000.00 groomers. Join a club and you will learn more and we need new members!

    I though the club was paid by miles of trail groomed.I see now why the club where I ride rarely grooms. Low snow year = no groomer wear,prepaid by the state,no incentive to groom.
