The Hilton Sno-Flyers are in the process of releasing a new trail map for the 2018-2019 season. We're looking for sponsors to advertise on the map. The sponsorship helps cover the cost of the map and is a fundraiser for club operations. It also promotes local business. If you have a local business (or know of a business) that is interested in advertising, please send us a message. Thanks - HSF ... See MoreSee Less

The club is in need of a refrigerator for the South Groomer Barn. Our old one has served us for many years but finally died. We use the refrigerator for storing extra supplies from festivals and fund raisers along with refreshments for volunteers working at the barn. If anyone has a used refrigerator they would be interested in donating, please send us a message. Thanks - HSF ... See MoreSee Less
