Welcome to the Prior Lake Snowmobile Association's website. Please enjoy the photos and club information provided. The site provides updates on local and state events, community events, trail conditions in Scott County, Minnesota, and youth safety training.
Due to the COVID-19 we will look for ways for the club members to meet safely, in person and virtually. Stay tuned for details as we do our best to accommodate our members.

Your membership in a local club helps cover costs for trail maintenance, grooming, equipment maintenance, and working with land owners to maintain our over 22,000 miles of trails in Minnesota. Note that 80% of all trails in Minnesota are maintained by club member volunteers!
As of April 1st, all trails are now closed for the season!
Sand Point Beach access is via the Boat Landing. Trailer parking is only in the Boat Landing lots. Do not park in the beach parking lot or use the beach access to the lake.
When the groomers are out, it's usually dark. Why, because our volunteers know that you want those trails fresh and ready to go in the morning. Did you know that each club in Scott County is responsible for providing Trail Bosses and Groomer drivers? Sno-Trails, which all Scott County clubs rolls up to, manages all the equipment, signage, insurance, fuel and grant-in-aid funds. There is a limited number of volunteers from each club that manages this for the rest of us. We can always use folks to help out with the trails. We are really in need of new Trail Bosses across the county. Many of the folks doing this now are ready to retire or have taken on larger and larger areas as the number volunteering has dropped.
Being a Trail Boss does not mean you go it alone, it just means you are responsible for make sure the signage gets placed properly and is maintained. You can always request help from volunteers and folks are more than willing to help. Please consider becoming a trail boss and/or volunteering to help with trails. REMEMBER…NO TRAIL BOSS = NO TRAIL!
Club member Terry Hutchinson has been inducted into the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame. Thanks again to those that contributed to his nomination letter.
