BRP’s heritage in supporting snowmobiling dates back to the first groomed trail systems with the original SnoPlan. The Snow PASS Program continues in that spirit by supporting the grassroots organizations that make it all happen.
We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to all the clubs, organizations and volunteers who selflessly share their time and resources to make snowmobiling better for all of us. Congratulations to all those selected to receive a Snow PASS grant for the upcoming season.
“You just can't imagine what a shot in the arm this is for us.”
- Michelle LaRose, Treasurer of the Curry Ridge Riders snowmobile club in Alaska.
“Alaska Safe Riders is very excited to get the Ski-Doo Snow P.A.S.S. grant. It will go a long way in making Alaska a safer place to ride”
- Mike Buck, Director of Alaska Safe Riders, said.
“This support will be used to keep our trail system safe, provide the best site of vision for all riders, and safety for our Groomer operators”
- Tina Cock-Crawford, President of Dalhousie Mountain Snowmobile Club in Nova Scotia.
See you on the snow!

Ski-Doo will provide a matched grant of up to $5,000 USD to fund a variety of projects. There must be matching funds of at least the same amount as requested from other sources.
While the submission deadline for this season has passed, it's never too early to start planning for next season. Get your submission for winter 2022-23 ready to go and make sure to come back next summer to submit it. Have a great winter.
A variety of factors are taken into account when selecting which projects receive funding, including type of project, scale, location, number of people impacted and more.
If a grant is approved, 80% of the funds will be sent in advance. The remaining 20% will be sent when the organization sends in a wrap up report that includes any photos, video, documents or publicity obtained while executing the project.
The organization needs to promote their project within the appropriate community to raise awareness (social media, local news outlets, email lists, etc.)
