Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club, Craig, CO member receives International Snowmobile
Groomer of the Year

Bill Spicer of Craig, CO was named the International Groomer of the Year at the Snowmobile
International Hall of Fame meeting in Eagle River, WI.
While a snowmobiler since 1972, Bill was too busy teaching Vo-Ag to get involved with his club
activities. But after retiring in 1996, he soon became immersed in his new passion of trail
grooming for the Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club, and made up for lost time.
As a certified welder and top notch mechanic, these skills served him well in maintaining and
operating the groomer and groomer program.

At 82 years young, and while most people that age are relaxing, Bill is still very active
snowmobiling, club activities, club Board of Director since 1995, volunteering for many club
activities and local civic events, training new groomer operators and grooming the Club Trails
on Routt National Forest.

Perhaps his most outstanding trait is that he is always making himself available for local club
events, helping out whenever needed. Bill adjusts his personal schedule to fit the needs of the
grooming program schedule. For his 20 plus years of grooming efforts, Bill was awarded the International (United States,
Canada and Sweden) Snowmobile Groomer of the Year for 2017. His award includes the use of a
2018 Arctic Cat snowmobile for a Year and a new Arctic Cat coat and bibs.

NOWECOS is proud to have nominated Bill for Colorado Groomer of the Year, which after
winning this award, qualified him for the International Award.

LOCATION:
The Northern Craig Snowmobile System is located in the Bears Ears District of Routt National Forest in Northwest Colorado. Trailheads, of maintained trails leading into the Black Mountain and California Park areas of the Elkhead Mountain Range, are conveniently located approximately 10, 11 and 25 miles north of Craig on Colorado Highway 13. All trailheads are approximately 1 to 2 miles east of the Highway. Maps are availiable at the Trail Head parking lots.

AREA DESCRIPTION: Trail elevations range from approximately 7000 to over 10,000 feet, with snow depths of 4 to 10 feet from late November through April. The area has a wide variety of terrain and scenery, including steep mountains, stands of Spruce, Fir and Aspen trees, and scenic overlook points of the Yampa Valley. At the lower elevations, the trails pass through many large open parks and meadows, and over gently rolling hills. Most wildlife is located below the 8,000 foot elevation during the winter months. Elk, deer and antelope can often be seen in the fields along CO HWY 13 and the country leading to the trailheads.


NOWECOS would like to thank our Business Sponsors and ask you to support their establishments.
