KLIM Technical Riding Gear and GORE-TEX have teamed up to support local snowmobiling by releasing $5,000 in cash grants available to local snowmobile clubs, riding and advocacy groups.

“Last year, the grant program was a huge success with five clubs from across the country taking $1,000 each into their 2010-2011 budgets,” KLIM says in a release. “KLIM and GORE-TEX look to continue the wonderful momentum for 2011-2012.”

According to KLIM, grants for this year (five, $1,000 individual grants) will be awarded to clubs who show the most potential for promoting the core ideals of responsible snowmobiling and who best represent and support the pinnacles of a true enthusiast groups: snowmobiling family, community and the sport’s preservation.

Groups can apply simply by sending KLIM a simple email (1,000 words or less, please) explaining how they would use $1,000 to benefit their local riding community and snowmobiling in general. Email-resolution photos, links to websites and videos and other multi-media are welcomed as well.

Applications will be accepted until Dec. 1, 2011. Grant winners will be announced Dec. 5.
