    IASC

    The IASC (Illinois Association of Snowmobile Clubs) is a not for profit corporation whose membership is comprised of Illinois snowmobile clubs. Its officers and members are volunteers who come from all walks of life.

    Structure: The IASC is comprised of eleven geographical regions. Each region is comprised of clubs within its area.

    History: The IASC was formed in 1972 as the first minified voice of Illinois snowmobilers. The -ASC initiated the Illinois snowmobile safety education program. Early years were spent as a watchdog for legislation unfavorable to promoting legislation favorable to snowmobiling. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) is the government agency responsible for regulating snowmobiling in Illinois. Since 1977, the IASC has continually worked to improve the relationship with the IDNR. The result has been a mutual beneficial relationship.

    Illinois Snowmobiler Magazine: The Illinois Snowmobiler magazine is one of the finest snowmobile publications available today. With an emphasis on the Illinois reader, the magazine covers Illinois trails and snowmobile related events, local club and state news, plus snowmobiling opportunities in other states. Publications is September through March and is a benefit of IASC membership.

    ILLINOIS SNOWMOBILE CLUBS

    Backbone of the Sport: Snowmobile clubs are the strength of the sport, not only in Illinois, but also across the snowbelt. Without snowmobile clubs, there would be no snowmobile trails in Illinois today. Who gets the landowners permission for trails? Who marks and grooms the trails? Who volunteers to teach our children the safe way to ride snowmobiles? The snowmobile club members do.

    Personal Benefits: A prime reason to join a snowmobile club is not just the sense of responsibility of doing something positive for the sport. The best reason to join a snowmobile club is to have more fun. Snowmobiling is a very special sport. We like to share it with others. It is much more fun to be with a group than to snowmobile alone. Snowmobile clubs provide an opportunity to meet other people with the same interest. You'll discover new places to ride, plus take club trips. Even the work parties become fun because of the camaderie. Club events such as hayrides, picnics, campouts and dances are held to keep the fun going all year long.

    Choosing a Club: Most snowmobile clubs in Illinois are members of THE IASC, the parent organization representing the sport of snowmobiling in Illinois. There are nearly 80 clubs throughout the state, with one probably close to you. The IASC will be happy to refer you to a club in your area. We can even help you start a new club if you wish. If there are several clubs in your area, visit them, then make a choice and join. Annual family memberships dues are typically $20-$30.
