The Trailbusters Snowmobile Club, Inc. is a non-profit snowmobile club founded in 1966. The club maintains over 41 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.

All Trailbusters Snowmobile Trails are Officially Closed for the Season  

The Trailbusters wish to extend a thank you to all of the very gracious landowners who allowed the use of their land during this very successful snowmobiling season.

As we state every year, motorized vehicles of any type, including ATVís and dirt bikes, are not permitted to use the trail system during the offseason. The only exception will be for club volunteers who will be closing gates and fences and removing signs.

Club Update from our Secretary Millie Piersall - April 7, 2014


*****************************Important information*******************************


We have ended a wonderful snowmobiling season.  We hope you had the chance to enjoy the trails. Your continued support of the club which enables us to provide you the smooth groomed trails is appreciated.  We hope to see all present members back again next season.  Encourage your friends and neighbors to join the club so we can continue to provide the class trails expected of us. 


A heads up on renewing memberships for the coming season: First and more importantly, blank vouchers will no longer be issued.  We regret not being able to provide this convenient service to you wherein you were able to renew your club membership and get the blank voucher at our local snowmobile dealers.  Membership applications will still be processed by the club after receiving your membership request, then mailed to you.


NYSSA has moved to a new membership system effective 1 April 2014.  The look of the online membership system will be slightly different from the past.


One of the most apparent changes is that you will no longer need your NYSSA ID # and old password to enter into the membership system and renew your membership.


Your logon or your user ID will be your e-mail address and you can make up your password.  Unfortunately, since this is a brand new system you will need to re-enter all your information including your address and any other person who registers a sled under your voucher e.g., your spouse or partner, or child under 18.


Any name and address that appears on the sled registration issued by DMV must also appear on the NYSSA voucher, and it must be recorded within your member account.  Handwritten changes to the voucher will not be accepted at DMV, so be sure the information that you input, including your address, is accurate.


The new system will generate a totally unique voucher number for each membership year. 


Additional information on the new membership system will be provided on the NYSSA website and within the NYSSA Online Magazine over the coming months.

FYI, you can no longer join a snowmobile club at the DMV. If you do not join a club, your registration fee will be $100 per sled. If you do join a club, the registration fee is $45 per sled. The Trailbusters Snowmobile Club would be honored to have you join us as a member!
