The Trailbusters Snowmobile Club, Inc. is a non-profit snowmobile club founded in 1966. The club maintains over 38 miles of Class A trails over both public and private lands. The club provides snowmobile safety education classes and encourages preservation, conservation and a healthy respect of nature and the environment. 

The Lee Center Trailbusters would like to thank all of our landowners for their generous cooperation in allowing us to have trails travel across their property. Without their support, it would not be possible to have these trails.

END OF SEASON REQUEST FOR HELP

Dear Trailbusters SC Members,

We are asking for your help to take down trail stakes and signs. We cannot do this alone and hope you can afford a few hours to assist us in this necessary task. We will be doing this from April 1-10.

The trail system will be broken up into sections, basically from stop sign to stop sign. We are asking that you choose one or more sections to be responsible for. After you pull the stakes, just drop them off at our groomer barn on Sly Hill Rd and stack them in front of the center overhead door. We will take care of removing the signs from the stakes. Please contact the club by sending an email that you are willing to help and notate the best way to contact you. Our club email is: indytraks@twcny.rr.com (click).

Additionally, we will have normal work this summer requiring your help. This work includes redecking bridges and re-routing trails, (2 for next season,) and we also will be blazing a new trail for next season. Please let us know your availability and how you can help with these activities.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and look forward to your assistance. Many hands make light work.

Trailbusters Monthly Meetings

Monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm at the Lee Center Town Hall on the Stokes Lee Center Road. Club Participation is needed for everything from grooming and maintaining trails and equipment to planning and executing events, administration, and communications. Your club desperately needs your input and active participation.

The Trailbusters Snowmobile Club is a year round club. Besides grooming 38 miles of trails 6 nights a week (when we have snow); maintaining 2 groomers and a host of other equipment; making, placing and removing approximately 900 stakes and signing, clearing and (at times) rerouting.  Last summer the club re-decked three bridges and completely rebuilt one bridge.

This spring, summer and fall, there is a host of similar projects that will need to be addressed so that there will be safe trails to ride next year.  Please come to the monthly meetings and be a part of something really great. We all want safe and professionally maintained trails to ride, but we need more people involved. Won't you please take an active role and help your club! Please contact Bob Spindler at 339-0426 so he can add your name to our volunteer list. Thank you!
