The primary missions of the AVSA are to promote safe and responsible snowmobiling in the Grayling area, and to develop, improve, and maintain the local trail systems.
We do a large amount of work on the trails in the Grayling area, including:
- Brush Clearing
- Grading / Leveling
- Daily Grooming in the Winter
This work is primarily done by the members of the AVSA, and on a Volunteer basis. We are not paid individually to do this work. The club is reimbursed by the state of Michigan for some equipment and fuel costs.
