About the Black Tusk Snowmobile Club

The Black Tusk Snowmobile Club (BTSC) was founded in 1971 in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada on the heels of a failed ski development. Soon after, The BTSC negotiated it's tenure on Brohm Ridge, North of Squamish at approximately 5300ft above sea level on the rim of an ancient volcano.

We tell many people that Brohm Ridge and the Black Tusk Snowmobile Club boasts the longest sledding season of any club in British Columbia.

Here is a webcam pic of April 27/14.    This amounts to about 8' - 9' of snow at the Chalet.  As per usual, the club will host its annual 'Summer Solstice' event on Saturday June 21 and for all you 'newbies', yes there will be snow and have your sleds ready.  It is always a GREAT way to welcome your Summer season.
