About Us

The Oregon State Snowmobile Association is an organization of individuals, 
snowmobileclubs, and businesses working together to preserve, protect, 
and enhance the sport of snowmobiling. OSSA was formed in 1972 by a small 
group of snowmobilers concerned about our sport. The Association saw a 
need for better, safer, and more scenic trails and recognized the public 
demand for a better trail system.


OSSA is an organization of 25 member clubs, all of which provide volunteer trail clearing, maintenance and grooming in their area. OSSA manages the grooming program under agreement with ODOT. OSSA provides the equipment and a budget to each club to fit their needs. Volunteers average more than 28,000 hours of volunteer labor annually maintaining our 6,000 mile trail system and groomer operators average more than 31,000 miles of groomed trails each and every season. Our program is recognizednationally for it’s outstanding volunteerism. If you enjoy our trails, thank a volunteer!

OSSA snowmobile clubs participate in many diverse activities. An organization we are proud to be involved with is the Candlelighters. OSSA contributes to a co-op law-enforcement program with eight county sheriff’s departments. Safety Certificationclasses are scheduled throughout the state to promote safe snowmobiling. Our snowmobile clubs build and maintain snow shelters for the enjoyment of all winter recreationists. We provide representation for legislative issues at the state and national level. OSSA promotes safe, responsible snowmobiling and proper recreational land use.
Thousands of acres of prime snowmobiling are lost to Wilderness designation.  The support and vigilance of all snowmobilers is needed to stop this growing expansion.  Join us and make a difference. Help us keep you on the snow.
