The Municipal Enforcement Division conducts snowmobile patrols during the winter months. Snowmobile safety is our primary concern.

The Great Slave Snowmobile Association (GSSA) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting safe, responsible snowmobiling in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

The members of the Trail Riders are active in the community clearing trails, adding signage along the trail system, fund raising for a Kubota RTV to pull a Snowmobile Trail Groomer, and being a voice for snowmobilers within the community.
