Attention SkiBee’s Snowmobile Club Members and Guests
Sorry to report this, knowing how many of you are ready to ride after waiting for nine plus months of no snow, the Colebrook Trail System will NOT open tomorrow.
The SkiBee’s still have a list of projects that need to be finished before we can safely open our trail system for riding, along with the general work that is done each year before the season starts.
We are holding 2 work parties this weekend if anyone is available to help – meeting at 8am on Titus Hill/Jackson Road area.
As always, our major goal is to provide the safest and best snowmobiling adventures for you and your families, please be patience and continue to check our Facebook page for the opening of the trail system.
Happy Holidays form the SkiBee’s!

Wheel ATVs are not allowed on Colebrook Ski-Bees snowmobile trails at any time.
We had a landowner call and witnessed some riding (Fish and Game has been called).
We have also had reports from some other landowners that have witnessed ATV's on our trail system yesterday as well.
Just because there is very little or no snow does not mean it is open for ATVs Usage.
Track ATVs are allowed if the trail is opened, they meet the definition of a Snowmobile, and are registered as a Snowmobile.
From NH Fish and Game Website:
Tracked OHRV Registration Requirements
As of July 1, 2012, in order to operate on state-approved snowmobile trails, an OHRV (wheeled vehicle) that has had the wheels or tires removed and replaced with tracks, cleats or skis, MUST be properly registered in New Hampshire as a snowmobile.
The tracked OHRV must meet the definition of a snowmobile as defined by law.
The OHRV, with the tracks on, cannot exceed 54 inches in width and 1,200 pounds.
Thank You for your support.
Last night, January 30th, the Ski-Bees' held their annual Wild Game Dinner, at the Colebrook Country Club. Clay and Michelle Hinds provided the venue and a buffet dinner. Chef Clay had an assortment of game, which had been donated , and he prepared a variety of " Wild " dishes to please all. Club volunteers were servers at the buffet table, worked the dining room, and behind the scenes prepping, along with kitchen detail. A Thank You to Ken and Joan Kadaras, winners of the 50/50 raffle, who donated their winnings to the club. Thank you all for your support at this fundraiser for the Colebrook Ski-Bees' Snowmobile Club.
Austin's Ride has been cancelled for this year.
Did you know the largest expense for any snowmobile club is grooming?
Did you also know that the State does not pay 100% of the grooming cost?
New Hampshire Snowmobile Clubs are awarded a Grant to help with grooming cost that is funded by snowmobile registration fees.
This year our club was awarded a grant that pays $49.70 per hour. In total we receive less then 40 hours a week per groomer if we groom from December 15th to April 1st (if we go over on hours for the year the extra cost is 100% on the club). On average it cost the club $69.12 per hour to groom our trail system so for every hour we groom we are loosing almost $20. The $69.12 includes the following cost: employee wages, taxes, insurance, fuel, oils, garage expense, maintenance, and replacement costs.
So where does the other $20 per hour come from? It comes from Club Membership Fees, Donations, and fund raisers.
If you would like to help out our club so we can keep the groomers on the trails here is a few options
1) Join our Club - http://www.colebrookski-bees.com/membership/
2) If you can make a small donation
3) Register your snowmobile (the amount of money for grants is base on the amount of snowmobiles registered)
4) Volunteer and help out with Club Fund Raisers and Events
5) Attend our Monthly meetings and become an active member in the club.
