Proudly maintaining snowmobile trails in northern Oneida County, New York, including north Rome, Western,
Hawkins Corners, Lee Center, Stokes Corners, West Branch, Point Rock, Ava and into West Leyden.
The Trailbusters Snowmobile Club, Inc. is a non-profit snowmobile club founded in 1966. The club maintains over 38 miles of Class A trails over both public and private lands. The club provides snowmobile safety education classes and encourages preservation, conservation and a healthy respect of nature and the environment.
The Lee Center Trailbusters would like to thank all of our landowners for their generous cooperation in allowing us to have trails travel across their property. Without their support, it would not be possible to have these trails.
TRAIL WORK — $50 Amazon Gift Card Raffle
A club member has donated two (2) $50 Amazon gift cards to be given away. To be eligible, volunteer to lead and complete one of the high or medium priority projects in the attached list. As project lead, you will:

The Trailbusters Snowmobile Club is a year round club. Besides grooming 38 miles of trails 6 nights a week (when we have snow); maintaining 2 groomers and a host of other equipment; making, placing and removing approximately 900 stakes and signing, clearing and (at times) rerouting.
Each spring, summer and fall, there is a host of similar projects that will need to be addressed so that there will be safe trails to ride next year. Please come to the monthly meetings and be a part of something really great. We all want safe and professionally maintained trails to ride, but we need more people involved. Won't you please take an active role and help your club! Please contact Dave Seaton at 315-335-9881 so he can add your name to our volunteer list. Thank you!
