Klamath Falls, Oregon

The Klamath Basin Snowdrifters are the basin's only non-profit snowmobile/grooming club. During the snow season the clubs volunteer members keep 360 miles of designated trails smooth, clear, and safe for all riders. Safety and fun are top priorities of the club.  With a wide range of rider skill levels, anyone can always find a comfortable riding group. 

Our mission is to educate the snowmobiling community about changes in laws, trail conditions, and weather conditions. To keep up to date, download the latest copy of the “The Drifter”, a monthly newsletter.  All KBSD club members are also members of the  Oregon State Snowmobile Association (OSSA).  The OSSA is in contract with the State of Oregon to maintain and groom the snowmobile trails throughout the state, as well as fighting to keep our snowmobile trails and rights as snowmobilers from being taken away from us.

Groomer Report

Grooming Report for March 30

Dan Riblett

The cat made it to Fish Lake on Monday and to Pelican on Thursday. Trails at low elevations are losing snow fast. Expect a lot of bare spots if you ride toward Pelican.

The lack of snow ends our grooming season in the Lake of the Woods/Fish Lake area.

See you again next winter!

Grooming report for March 23

Dan Riblett

The Cat was out Wed and Fri and groomed about 100 miles. Snow at lower elevations is very thin in places. Expect bumpy trails until you get to higher elevations. The Cat did not make it to the Fish Lake side or south to Keno Access due to rain and low snow. The weather forecast is saying we should get a good amount of snow in the next two days. If so, we will try for a full week of grooming.

Trails groomed this week are in BOLD BLUE

Grooming Report for March 9, 2018

Dan Riblett

The cat made it out three days this week before rain halted operations. We ran about 180 miles in the three days, though! Trails will be soft, but in pretty good shape for the weather! Blue Text indicates trails groomed this week!

No snow, no grooming!

Dan Riblett

What a disappointment Mother Nature is! The snow is gone down low, the Great Meadow is bare, and the cat is parked. The weather report doesn't look favorable to any continued grooming this season. If we get enough snow to resume grooming operations, this page will be updated.

 

Limited Grooming Started

Dan Riblett

The Cat made it to 4 Mile, and did the East 4 Mile trail to Cold springs today. Snow was sketchy at lower elevations, but pretty good up high.

Grooming will be spotty until more snow is on the trails.

THINK SNOW!
