Situated in the backyard of Enderby, BC is the Hunter's Range, home of the Hunter's Range Snowmobile Association (HRSA). Hosting some of the best alpine snowmobiling in Canada, this vast mountainous landscape has something for everyone. Whether you are looking to explore endless meadows and alpine vistas or wanting to go steep and deep on challenging hills and bowls, over 90 km of marked groomed trails provide quick and easy access to the various riding areas and cozy warm up cabins.
Forming a society in 1977, the volunteer based non-profit organization has since then strived to promote:
- The Sport of Snowmobiling
- The Safe Operation of Snowmobiles
- Avalanche Awareness
- The Conservation and Careful use of the Backcountry
Additionally, under an agreement with the Ministry of Forests, the HRSA is also responsible for managing and maintaining the groomed trails, chalets and various riding areas.
Funding for the organization is mainly brought in from:
- Membership Fees
- Sales of Day User Passes
- Sponsorship Contributions from Local Businesses
- Fundraising events
