The Forest Preserve Users Snowmobile Club was formed in the early 1960's with the idea of developing a snowmobile trail system in the Fulton County section of the Adirondack Forest Preserve. The Club originally had a club house at Crystal Lake just north of Oppenhiem, NY. Due to the location of the club house the club also became unofficially known as the "Crystal Lake Snowmobile Club".

At one time the club house was the gathering place for snowmobilers from throughout the state, to meet, have fundraisers and even host dog sled races. Although the club was very successful in there venture, the lack of snow and the economic times of the early 1980's forced the club to sell off the club house and property. The remaining few members of the club continued to meet at members houses and taverns. In the early 1990's a group of snowmobilers saw the need for an organized snowmobile trail system throughout Montgomery County. This led to the rebirth of the Forest Preserve Users as we know it today.

Starting the restructuring with less than 10 members, the club has now grown to well over 200 members with over 100 miles of Class A groomed trails and near that many miles of secondary trails in five townships in western Montgomery County. Members of the Forest Preserve Users have also been fundamental in the development of a County Association which has helped to develop trails throughout Montgomery and surrounding counties as well as becoming heavily involved with the New York State Snowmobile Association.

The Forest Preserve Users are proud members of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce as well as a Member Club of the New York State Snowmobile Association.
