Formed in 1965, the Yakima Ski-Benders snowmobile club enjoys snowmobiling and other recreation opportunities in the Ahtanum State Forest. Each year, the 125-member club supports these opportunities with their annual summer clean-up and camping weekend, when they pick up litter along roads and trails and maintain green dot roads and campgrounds. The club, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015, also often hosts winter events in Ahtanum State Forest to educate younger riders on snow safety and rider etiquette.
