Mt. Hood Snowmobile Club was formed in August of 1967. Thirteen people met and expressed the idea of forming a club to bring together the people of this "new sport” of snowmobiling in Oregon. Articles of Incorporation were filled out, presented to the State and approved in December of 1967.
Mt. Hood Snowmobile Club has been instrumental in setting up several shelters in the snowmobile areas on Mt. Hood.
In the fall of 1972, four members of our Club journeyed to Bend, Oregon to meet with snowmobilers from other areas in Oregon to form a state snowmobile association. In time, this became the Oregon State Snowmobile Association. The State was divided into different areas with a representative in each area to bring their ideas and problems before the State Association.
Since 1978, MHSC has been grooming the trails around the designated snowmobile areas. As finances become available, more modern equipment is being used. The grooming committee now has use of a PistenBully 400 with a special grooming attachment that keeps approximately 400 miles of trails groomed in the Mt. Hood National Forest.
Mt. Hood Snowmobile Club considers snowmobiling to be a family sport. Our activities are geared to that idea.
The most enjoyable function on our calendar is the snowmobile rides we give to the children who have cancer. In doing this we started giving our donated money to the "Candlelighter Organization” a parent support group.
MHSC currently has approximately 100 members and are always looking for more. Thank you for your interest in MHSC. Ride safe and have fun.
