Going Up!

The Vernon Snowmobile Association is very proud to present the first look at our new chalet! 56 years ago this summer the founders of our club were building the original chalet and now this amazing new building is standing.

It was a huge amount of work; Friday afternoon this was a pile of lumber and some sonnet tubes sticking out of the ground. There was a very dedicated and hard working group of volunteers at it all weekend. We were lucky to have a lot of help – Huber Construction Ltd was there all weekend with tools, machinery and a whole lot of expertise. Bernhard and Brian managed to get a bunch of snowmobilers organized and working and were so extremely patient with all of us. They taught us how to do it the right way and took the time to explain why we were doing it the way we did. In the end this beautiful new bulding is standing thanks to them and the amazing craftsmanship that Huber Construction is known for.

There’s still a lot of work to do, so if you can help please come out over the summer and give a hand.

But for now we’re having a little rest and getting back at it next weekend so this chalet will be ready for all the members and especially all the families to enjoy it next winter.

We will post here when the next work parties are happening, and over the summer we will feature the businesses and donors that helped us get here, we couldn’t have done it without you.

Well done everyone, and thank you so much!
