Good Season For Atikokan Sno Ho Snowmobile Club     


by Scott A. Sumner

   " Next year will be our 50th Anniversary of the club." smiles Kim Cross  President of the Atikokan Sno Ho Snowmobile Club. In her day job Kim  is an accountant at the Atikokan Hospital.  


   “ The Sno Ho’s club is going well. We got some new volunteers,  including groomer operators and our permit sales are up. On the other hand our grooming  equipment is getting old, a BR 180, and we are having a harder time  keeping it running, " said Kim Cross. “ The online permit sale  helped us. If you bought by November 1st it was $180  so it helped. It  was convenient for people to buy online.   We  also have more trail patrol going on as well which has helped.”  The Atikokan club had 150  permits sales this year  while last  year 120 permit sales.   

  “ The Atikokan  economy is getting better as we have new  industry with RenTec which will produce wood pellets, the Ontario  Power Generation conversion and the old Sapawe Mill has been purchased  by Resolute doing a $50 million renovation." said Cross    

   There is a snowmobile summit to be held March 18 and 19 this year  in Sault Ste Marie put on by the Northern Ontario Tourism that KIm  Cross will attend. " We will have a session called Lets Talk so club  representatives will be going and talking about snowmobile tourism,”  said Cross.   " We went to the AGM of the OFSC in December and  there was lots of changes in funding the clubs which helped.”
