Wind Lake North Cape Drifters Snowmobile Club



The Wind Lake Drifters Snowmobile Club was established in 1973 and is still going strong. Several years ago the club was renamed The Wind Lake/North Cape Drifters because over time the hub of our trails had become more concentrated in the North Cape and Kansasville areas. The club is very family oriented with activities including club snowmobiling trips, a chili dump, a vintage ride, and a club motorcycle ride. The Drifters’ Christmas party has become so well known that Santa even makes an annual appearance! The Wind Lake/North Cape Drifters is a growing club with about 90 registered members each year.
