WHO WE ARE
Snowmobile Fans Doing Good!
Our mission at Fort Drift Skippers is to unite snowmobilers from around Fort Atkinson, creating a community of openness and enthusiasm. Since 1970, we’ve been a valuable resource for club members sharing important news and updates. We never rest on our laurels, and are always looking to improve and expand our sport of safely snowmobiling. We have many members who participate in trail maintenance and install hundreds of trail markers in the fall and remove them in the spring. We maintain lots of bridges over waterways and identify and re mediate potential problems along the 30 miles of local trails.
The Fort Drift Skippers have many fundraisers throughout the year and donate thousands of dollars to charitable organizations such as the Jefferson County Humane Society and the Boys and Girls Club among others.
