Insurance Issues with Projects on Public Lands

In Colorado, we have stumbled across several issues with insurance coverage for projects on public lands. Most of these issues have involved clubs undertaking construction of trails and other resources on public lands and encompasses both the motorized and non-motorized user communities operating under state grant requirements. I need to preface this article with a statement that this article is not going to explore every aspect of this issue and only provides a brief overview of the issue. A complete review of this would be VERY long and probably could not address every challenge that is being faced. Additionally, we need to keep a light at the end of the tunnel on this issue as we have been working with COHVCO and Colorado DNR to develop legislation to begin to address the issues that can be addressed with state level legislation. While this state legislation does not resolve all the concerns on federal lands, it is a start as federal law remains the standard on federal lands. Relevant Federal laws addressing volunteers has several criteria for applicability and only protects individuals that are not receiving compensation. If the persons are being compensated, you need workers compensation insurance. It does not provide any protection for Organizations that might be partnering with land managers to address a wide range of resources, making insurance for any Organizations on public lands highly important. The snowmobile community has pooled resources and been able to purchase insurance at reasonable rates for an extended period of time for grooming operations and other related activities but such pooling has not been practical for other summer based clubs. Even with this pooling expansion of state liability protections for not for profits

www.snowmobilecolo.com should provide reduced rates, once the state legislation has passed. Additionally federal law requires that all volunteers be properly trained or certified, and Prinoth has been very good at training certified operators of grooming equipment in Colorado. If you are running a chainsaw, you need to be trained to do so on federal lands. This should be significantly easier in the near future as the USFS has revised this process to make it more user friendly, but that is another article. The levels of protection available for volunteers, and responsibilities of the clubs varies depending on the agreement in place with the USFS for the project. Basically there are two types of agreements, a volunteer agreement and a cost share challenge agreement that can be in place for volunteer projects with the USFS. A volunteer agreement provides more protection for the individual, as a properly trained individual will be protected in a manner similar to workers compensation through the USFS. With a cost share

challenge agreement, the club adopts that liability as this agreement is closer to a contract with a road building firm to build a road rather than a volunteer maintaining trails. Clubs have a far higher level of insurance requirements under the cost share challenge agreements. Not a bad thing but something to be aware of. Under standard grant language for recreational summer trails projects, something similar to completed operations insurance is also required, basically requiring a bond be posted until the project is completed. Basically this is a carryover from general contracting provisions, where the requirement makes good sense. Basically the bond is in place to make sure the project gets done, even if something happens to the contracting organizations. This has been a major hurdle for clubs as these are not projects that are neat and clean in scope and frequently utilize a wide range of tools to complete. Frequently insurance questionnaires include questions addressing use of ATVs,

construction, chainsaws, bulldozers, volunteers and levels of training. From an insurance underwriters perspective, this simply layers upon layers of liability that may not have an end date when reviewing a club based trail construction process. This translates to a very high premium if the insurance is available at all. Most clubs are also shocked to learn that trail construction, and many of the other resources used in trail projects, are specifically excluded from coverage under a general liability policy. Right now CSA insurance does cover much of these activities relative to winter trail grooming but there are activities that might fall outside the scope of this coverage. Clubs need to be aware of that and that possible new insurance resources in this area are being looked at by both American Motorcyclist Association and the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association. Hopefully there is some good news on this issue in the near future, both from the legislation and insurance providers.

Motorized community meets with Representative Scott Tipton

The motorized community met with Congressman Scott Tipton today to provide support donations from several motorized organization’s political action committees including the American Motorcyclist Assoc. (AMPAC), Friends of Snowmobiling PAC and the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s PAC. Congressman Tipton’s office has been crucial in protecting multiple use recreation on public lands.

His office’s efforts have been highlighted by: • The passage of the Hermosa Watershed Legislation, which released a Wilderness Study area critical to continued motorized access to the San Juan NF; • Introduction of legislation to release the North Sand Hills area, providing sand dune riding experiences outside Walden CO from its WSA designation;

• Protection of local interests and concerns when faced with large Wilderness Proposals; • Supporting revision of the Endangered Species; • Formally expressing concern about closures to multiple use access proposed in the BLM Grand Junction Field Office plan; and • Support of the RPM Act, which protects modification of streetbased vehicles into race cars

The Snow Snakes land is located where the former Gould Schoolhouse was located off Highway 14 and JCR 21 in Gould. The 40’ x 60’ building is financed by club savings and private donations (no grants or loans) and is being built by Harry Corkle Construction in Walden. Expect more photos on progress as it moves along! The building will be completed for this season and the Annual Gould Poker Run with the Wounded Warriors will be starting and ending at the building on February 11. All the proceeds from the Poker Run are donated to local charities like the Jackson County Fire Department, North Park Hospital District, Jackson County Search & Rescue, and others. It is also a great event to honor the Wounded Warrior Veterans, have fun, and introduce some new people to the sport we love. Monthly club meetings are held

the first Wednesday of the month and alternate between the Riverrock and Moose Creek restaurants in Walden. We typically do dinner at 6:00 and 7:00 for the meeting. Aside from the building news, the ‘Snakes held their Trail Work on October 1-2 this year with about 20 members of the Snow Snakes and Blizzards present. A great time was had by all with the perfect weather and colorful fall landscape. An impressive amount of work was performed by the volunteers including clearing trees and stumps, and setting t-posts for trail signs on approximately 50 or 60 miles of our trails that were had not been cleaned by seasonal summer crews. Note the building trusses we set up our tables and barbeque at on our land next to the building site. North Park has been teased by several snow storms so far this fall, but now much of the high country is losing the early snow pack. We are hopeful for great snow this year in North Park and all the high country

in the state. The Colorado Blizzards are moving right along with their season. I can’t thank the Blizzards enough for all of their hard work and volunteer hours with the Denver expo. I am truly proud to be a member of this club. At a recent meeting, officers were transitioned, and there was lengthy discussion about some historical documentation. It was decided that the documents would be scanned into electronic format and that the hard copies would be discarded, most of which were decades old. The Blizzards are planning their upcoming Christmas party (usually held the second week in December). Several options, including Laser Tag/Bowling were discussed. Overall, people were excited to try something new. Also, planning has begun for the annual Presidents Day Ride at Steamboat Lake. Nearly all of the lodging at Hahn’s Peak have been booked, and everyone is looking forward to deep snow and good

times with friends. Finally, it was discussed to update the meeting format to include more education. It was discussed that the club felt it is important to recruit more members, and one way of doing that is to increase the value of the meetings and rides, especially to folks that might be newer to riding. Some topics included backcountry survival, riding tips, membership drives, movie screenings, and maybe just a few fun field trips. Overall, despite the slow start to snow accumulation, I’m pretty happy with each club and their progress. I continue to urge each club to look at membership and how we can increase our presence. The key, I feel, is VALUE. There are a lot of newer riders out there, looking for help, and that’s a great place to start! I hope to see each of you on the snow this year.

October is quickly going away, and there is no snow to speak of in N.W. Colorado. The snow expo was one of the best ever this year. If you missed it, shame on you. There were alot of new vendors this year. As we heard at the CSA meeting on Sunday, attendance was up from last year.

NOWECOS club had their summer picnic the second Sunday of September, good food, good times for one and all. The tracks on their snowcat have been pulled off and rebuilt. They are back on the cat and ready to go. Come on snow!! The Meeker club is planning their Winter Carnival. Routt Power Riders have

helped install a new outhouse at the parking lot on Rabbit Ears. Steamboat Lake club has a new President. All clubs are just waiting for fall to fade away and Winter to get going. I will wish all of you Happy Holidays and safe riding this year. Also remember to bring a new member to your club meeting.

Steamboat Lake Snow Club

Hidy-Ho from North Routt. The first meeting of the year was moved to the second Tuesday of October to accommodate an executive meeting with Kent Foster of the USFS. Even with the moved date and short notice, there were eleven members who showed up, and we can only hope that trend continues. The topic of discussion with Mr. Foster was the new parking facility above Columbine on FS Road 550. The clubs hopes were to be able and move the current parking situation up to this location yet, the facility did not reach completion and will not be useable in any form or fashion for the winter season. As of the October meeting, club officer and board member nominations will be open until

the November meeting when the elections will take place. We have plenty of silent members and continue to campaign for active members to contribute to a beneficial cause. The Pisten Bully has had a service done and some repairs made so that it hopefully is ready to R and R for the grooming season without many or better yet, any issues. Other trails news is that Darrin Zamzow is applying for the acquisition of a “Beacon Status Board” which will be placed at the parking lot trail head. The board will inform you of your avalanche beacon status as you ride by it, which is a great safety feature to provide the back country riders that use your trail system to get there. There is an Italian dinner fundraiser/membership drive posted for the 3rd of December at

Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club

Hello, from NOWECOS (Craig Snowmobile Club) We have been very busy since September. Our Annual Pot-luck picnic to kick off the new season was a success. Everyone made their best dishes and we all had a good time just visiting, No meeting, YEAH! Since our picnic we have been very busy with our monthly meetings, taking off our Groomer tracks and putting them back on after being rebuilt by Prinoth, Grand Junction. Nine of our club members chain sawed and cleared off 48 trees, which had either fallen or were in the way of riding on five of our snowmobile trails. We still have more trail clearing to do, but those trails will have to wait until the first part of snowmobile season. This past Sunday, four of our members replaced reflectors and put up fallen trail marker in California Park and Slater Park. Now neither snowmobilers or the groomers will become lost in a California or Slater Park whiteout. Thanks to the members who helped with the tracks, cleared trails and worked on the trail marking poles you can now enjoy riding our 110 miles of trails in the Craig area. Another event our State Grooming Chairman, Joe Tonso and Joe Clark (Prinoth) worked on is the Annual Grooming Clinic which was held on November 12 at the Prinoth Building in Grand Junction.

NOWECOS members clearing the trail.

By the time this goes to press Colorado will have been hit with a very large snow storm and we will all be enjoying large amounts of snow in the mountains. Hopefully by now you have fixed that bent up A-arm and purchased the new track for your turbo sled. Sometime there are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done. I hope you all had a fun filled summer and fall with family and friends. Welcome Charles Stoyer, new president of the Grand Lake Trail Blazers. The Mile Hi board is looking forward to another successful joint fund raising poker run and raffle in February. Funds will be raised to support Flight For Life

wish is a very wonderful cause, I hope everyone will get involved and support this event. Flight For Life is a great segue for a life changing diet I have recently started. It is called The Whole 30, meaning do this for 30 days. Just a few things that are not going into my body, NO alcohol, sugar, dairy, grains and no beans. Must say that this is the wildest thing I have done in more years than I can count! The changes so far are much lower blood pressure, my joints don’t hurt, I sleep much better and I wake up much faster. Soon the snow mobile bibs will fit so much better and will be able to snap the waste. I will be able to get into so many other pants in the closet not worn in years.

Think how many pounds this will take off my sled, so much for needing to purchase light weight parts. Hope this put a smile on your face. Now for my new search for a new truck to load the camper on and pull the sled trailer. I am researching the possibility of purchasing a HDT (Heavy Duty Truck) known to most of you as a commercial  tractor or over the road truck, an 18 wheeler just not all of them. This would be a used truck around 2003 to 2005 with around 500,000 miles, singed, deck and titled as an RV. Who knows you might just see me on the mountain in one of these rigs. In closing be safe on the mountain.

District 5 Mark Young

Well record heat for the past month is not good news for us but still hoping for some cold weather and snow. Club members helped with trail maintenance with the Sangre Snow Runners. Les Lewis has been attending the Pikes Peak Highriders (PPHR) meetings and asked for assistance this fall to help take down some fences and clear the trails from some downed trees. Scott and Mary Beth Palmer, Ray and Mary Doble, Kurt Frilow, Stephanie Whisman, Trent Mattick and myself spent one day down near Ophir Creek earlier in Oct. It was a good day and actually colder then the last time we were riding last spring. We took down some T posts and barbed wire fencing along the trail. Some trees were cleared. We had a nice ATV ride looking for one mystery tree that we never found. After the work we fired up the grill and had lunch and a few adult beverages. Several members attended the Annual Snow Show in Denver. Ray and Mary Doble volunteered both days at the CSA booth. Kurt, Steph-

Pikes Peak Highriders anie, Trent, Ref and Carol Finsterwald, Tim Schulte and Janet Garcia also volunteered at the CSA booth selling raffle tickets. We had our first meeting of the year October 11. We thought we had new location but things did not go as planned. The restaurant put another party in the room and it was too loud. We are going to try Old Chicago, 4110 North Academy Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO for the next meeting Nov 8. We had a good turnout for the meeting and everyone is looking forward to get out on the snow. We made plans to attend Matt Entz Mountain Skills Avalanche Training in Dec down in South Fork. Matt has agreed to have classroom training on Friday and do some practical exercises Saturday. Looking forward to the training and gaining some on the snow experience. The club agreed that all riders should have their beacon, probe, and shovel for all rides. We set up two dates for selling raffle tickets in town. One at Sportsman Warehouse and at one of the Big R stores.

Meeting was finished with an upThat wraps up the PPHR news for date by the District 5 Rep Ray Doble. this issue of the Snow Scoop. Hope The CSA convention this year is in we can get out and ride soon. Be Silverton Feb 10-12. More to follow. Safe.

Buena Vista Snow Drifters Ron Rak

As of the end of October, it was warm and dry for the first two hunting seasons, allowing hunters good ATV access to all areas in Chaffee County, and safe – and warm! – hunting conditions. The outlook for the 3rd deer/elk season through November 13 also looks dry and warm (see Snowcast.com). The snowmobile season’s first grooming runs on Cottonwood Pass and St. Elmo areas aren’t usually made until after Thanksgiving. Five out of the last six seasons, the snows have come late, accumulating in December. For the 2015/16 season, the snows again came late, but continued until the end of April, allowing snowmobiling into May. The Club’s two snowcats and single-track groomer are ready to be deployed for the first significant snows. We welcome riders of all abilities and ages to enjoy the wide variety of trails we maintain. Contact us for the latest trail info, a map, or to meet us for a ride! The Snow Drifters are meeting this season the second Tuesday of every month in the Branding Iron Bar and Grill in Buena Vista. Come early and start with dinner at 6 p.m., before the meeting commences at 6:30 p.m. For further information about the Snowdrifters, contact Michelle Gunsher at mcg5659@yahoo.com.

District 8 West End Sledders

Lancy Falk

From the fun group on the West End Wow!! Where did summer go, I can’t believe it’s almost time to put the ATV’s away and break out the sleds. The West End Sledders tried to do camp trips, clean trash for the Forest Service along roads and in camp sites, and so few of us didn’t have grand kids, family gatherings, WORK, etc., that it was difficult to get it all put together this summer, but no worries some of our faithful group was still able to do some of it all anyway, and we will have our trails groomed and ready for the sleds on time. Our Grooming Chairman is right on top of things, has worked on grants, making sure groomer’s are ready, talking with Forest Service personal and seeing that operators are ready as well. With that being said, we are all looking forward to the coming winter and the fun events (poker run) and group rides that we all look forward to. Until Next time, Ride Safe, Be Safe, Go home Safe.

What more can a snowmobiler ask for?

District 9 San Juan Sledders

Melody Walters

So looking back over the summer, we had a great time enjoying the weather, but doing the snow dance was always a priority! So good to know that it’s right around the corner! San Juan Sledders Snowmobile club was appreciative for receiving the grant that is repairing our tiller and truck! We are anxiously awaiting their return so that we will be able to start grooming the (hopefully soon coming) snow. We are also excited about the new beacon checkpoints around the state, and are glad that raising the level of safety awareness is a goal that multiple organizations are working towards. As everyone else that loves to sled, we are looking forward to snow, and hope that our 70 degree weather goes south for the winter soon! The San Juan Sledders Snowmobile Club meetings are the second Thursday evening of the month during snow season. If you are new to the area, passing through or just staying for a short time, come join us! It’s always fun to meet others that share our passion for snowmobiling. Stop by our Facebook page (San Juan Sledders Snowmobile Club) to see time and location of the meetings. Stay safe out there and as always, Happy Sledding!! – Melody Walters Photos courtesy Melody Walters Up Middle Mountain Road near Vallecito Lake, Colorado.

Snowmobile Safety: Ride Safe and Have Fun!

Ed Klim, ISMA

Now is the time for snowmobilers to keep snowmobile safety a top-of-mind awareness issue. Snowmobile safety is nothing new to organized snowmobiling. Snowmobile Administrators, the Manufacturers, snowmobile associations and clubs joined together years ago in developing the Safe Riders! You make snowmobiling safe™ safety campaign which emphasized safe snowmobiling practices, training and enforcement. The campaign includes safety related materials such as decals, posters, the Safe Riders! DVD, public service announcements, and more. Millions of Safe Riders! Snowmobiling Fact Books, Brochures and Posters have been distributed throughout the world to safety trainers and clubs and associations - free of charge- from the manufacturers’ ISMA office. The 22 minute long DVD is an excellent adjunct tool for snowmobile safety classes. All of the Safe Riders! materials are available free of charge by filling out an order form and returning it to the ISMA office. The Safe Riders! campaign highlights key issues of importance for snowmobile safety. The position statements are concise and easy to understand. They include: 1. Snowmobiling and Alcohol don’t mix - don’t drink and ride 2. When night riding slow down - expect the unexpected 3. Know before you go - always check local ice conditions 4. Cross all roads with care - don’t become road-kill 5. One is the loneliest number - never ride alone 6. Know the risks and be prepared - make every trip a round trip 7. Ride smart ride right - stay in control 8. Smart Riders are Safe Riders - always take snowmobile safety training Mountain riders need to be aware of their surroundings and snow conditions. The 5 key safety guidelines when riding in avalanche country are: 1. GET THE GEAR: Ensure everyone has an avalanche transceiver, shovel, and probe on their person and knows how to use them. 2. GET THE TRAINING: Take an avalanche course. 3. GET THE FORECAST: Make a riding plan based on the current avalanche and weather forecast.  4. GET THE PICTURE: If you see recent avalanche activity, unstable snow exists. Riding on or underneath slopes is dangerous.  5. GET OUT OF HARM’S WAY: One at a time on all avalanche slopes. Don’t go to help your stuck friend. Don’t group up in runout zones.   This year International Snowmobile Safety Week is January 21-29, 2017. Visit www.snowmobile.org for a guide for ideas on how to organize a Safety Week event in your area. Like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GoSnowmobiling and share your safe ride stories with all of us.

The Timbersled ST 90 Ripper kit enhances a dirt bike’s versatility and value by converting it into a true, four-season machine – and it means there’s now a Timbersled system for every rider in the family. “This is an exciting addition to our Timbersled family of products that lets 110cc bike riders become snow bikers,” said Chris Wolf, Polaris Vice President – Snowmobiles. “With the new Ripper system, everyone in the family can experience the unique thrill of riding a Timbersled.” Timbersled systems include everything needed to convert a dirt bike to a snow bike and back again, and installation or removal of the ST 90 Ripper can be completed in less than an hour. The Timbersled spindle and ski replace the bike’s front wheel, and a high-traction track system replaces the rear wheel. The bike’s motor delivers power to the track, and the rider uses the bike’s standard controls. “The ST 90 Ripper system features premium components and advanced engineering, but what it really delivers is fun for everyone in the family,” said Wolf. Designed to be enjoyed by all riders, this new system maintains the bike’s low ride height to provide better control without sacrificing Timbersled performance. The lowfriction undercarriage and rail design lets the system perform in all conditions, and with no hyfax, the Ripper can be enjoyed in low-snow conditions or on dirt. Timbersled has designed the ST 90 Ripper ski for optimized handling and control. The ski features a design like that of the high-flotation, smooth-handling Polaris Gripper Ski used on many Polaris snow-

mobiles. It has a deep upper and lower keel for confidence-inspiring handling on loose or hard-packed surfaces. To deliver true Timbersled performance, the new ST 90 Ripper uses the full-size shock from the Timbersled ST 120 RAW. It’s a custom-valved RydeFX® MPV Motion Control coil over shock that provides every rider with a great ride on all types of terrain. Ripper systems are available for the most popular 110cc dirt bikes, including the Kawasaki KLX110/110L, Yamaha TTR110E, and Honda CFR110F. These Timbersled systems are an exceptional value at $1,999 US/$2,499 CAN (bike-specific installation “fit kit” sold separately). The new ST 90 Ripper system complements the existing 2017 Timbersled product line that was introduced in March 2016. These new systems for 110cc models will be available in limited quantities during the 2016-2017 winter season from North American Timbersled dealers.
