The foundation has been laid and now the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club is hoping the roof will go on their new greeting centre and maintenance shed by the start of winter.

The $350,000 facility will house the club’s offices and maintenance shop, as well as washrooms and a greeting centre for snowmobilers. There will be space to store the club’s four grooming machines — two in the shop and two in a covered area just outside. In past winters the groomers have sat outside in the elements.

The facility is located at the Boulder Mountain parking lot off Westside Road.

The building is being funded by grants, with $160,000 from the Resort Municipality Infrastructure Fund, $100,000 from the city’s Economic Opportunity Fund, and $90,000 from the Columbia Basin Trust.

The greeting centre has been in the works for several years, and is part of an overall facilities plan by the snowmobile club that also saw them build a new cabin on Boulder Mountain and renovate the warming hut on Frisby Ridge.

The building will serve as a welcome facility for snowmobilers and the place where tickets are sold, replacing the small booth that the club has used for years.

The building is will feature a stone base, with metal cladding and a timber frame entrance way. A well and septic system will service the greeting centre.

Mueller Construction won the bid to build the facility in August.
