Youth Club

Our Jefferson County Youth Representatives are hosting a meeting for all the area youth that are interested in being a part of a youth club. The meeting is set for January 16th @ 3pm at the Jefferson Legion. The hope is to get enough youth to learn about riding snowmobiles safely, help out the community with volunteering, and help with putting trails to one day have their own trails to be in charge of. If you have any questions prior to the meeting, please feel free to reach out to Ethan Degner at or Jon Lenz at They look forward to seeing everyone!

Youth Club

The Youth Representatives and their siblings for our county are trying to set up a Youth club all those age 12-17(that are licensed for snowmobiling) that may be interested in one. The goal is to build comradery among all ages to work together and promote snowmobiling at its finest. This club would help teach about the safety and laws for the sport, how to and what it takes to put in trails, as well as fundraise for the community. Please reach out to one of these members soon so we can start a club. We are unable to send out via the schools due to it not being related to them so please pass along the information to others that may be interested.

The Jefferson county youth rep is trying to see if there is any interest with the youth in the county for a youth club to be formed. The purpose is to keep the up coming youth in the Know of how the trail system works and how they can help now and in the future. They would be able to have any questions answered and help with putting in and taking out trails. How and why the trails exist and how to keep them in the future. They could also do community based fundraising for the less fortunate in our area. If there is any interest please contact Jon Lenz at

Have you seen this before?

These are ride safe lights! They have been around out east for a long time and are slowly making their way to the Midwest.

How they work: You install the lights on your sled (there is a company that sells as one unit to install) or you can install them yourself. Yellow(amber) is for all riders except the last one in your group. Green is used by the last rider. You install both colors on every sled if you don’t purchase the single unit. This is so when on coming traffic is coming they can see that there are more sleds coming until they get to the green. They will now know that was the last person in your group. No more hand signaling. This allows for riders to keep both hand on the handle bars at all times.
