Our 40th Year
The Southern Potter Snowmobile Club is celebrating it's 40th anniversary in December 2013. The club was organized in December 1973 by a group of people who enjoyed the winter months and snowmobiling. The club started that first year with 183 members and still today has held a steady membership around 200 members which we have a goal to see around 250 members by 2015.
Over the years the club has maintained, improved, and groomed over 80 miles of trails for your riding pleasure. In 2007 the club replaced the bridge behind the Wharton Store/Tavern with a new 120 ft steel I-beam bridge to replace the failing 30 year old steel bridge on the East Fork Railroad grade to keep the trail to Conrad open. In 2012 with the help of a grant from the Pa Snowmobile Association the club upgraded the bridges at Long and Jordan Hollows with new decking and widening of the bridges so we could use our larger IMP groomer and drag for better grooming operations in that area. Lots of trails have been brushed and drainage pipes installed to better improve your riding pleasure. Trail maintenance is an ongoing job and as help that is doing the work is getting older. Younger and more help is always needed. The club is always working with DCNR to improve trails and conditions such as the bridge we built on state land along route 607 at the bottom of Gas Well Rd. to improve state and local trails. Lots of work is being planned for the future years. Work details are planned the last two Saturdays of the months of June, July, August, and September.
