Born in May of 1987, Kyle Good was raised in the small community located in northern New-Brunswick known as Dalhousie Junction. His family consists of his parents Kevin and Laurence Good and his younger brother Mathew Good.  In June 2005 he graduated from Dalhousie Regional High School and continued his studies at the Maritime College of Forest Technology. After two years of studies, in 2007 he was proud to have received his diploma for the completion of the Forest Technology program.

In the past Kyle has had the pleasure of working for Rene Trailer Sales during the summer months of his junior and senior high school years.  After graduating college he was then offered a job with the Department of Natural Resources in Islandview, New Brunswick where he worked as an assistant with the native harvest program in the fall of 2007. From 2008 to spring of 2010 he then worked for Best Home Insulators spraying foam, upgrading and installing insulation at new and old constructions.  In the spring of 2010 he was offered a job once again with DNR as Squad Boss Leader for the Region 3 Fire crew for the upcoming fire season.

Kyle has been snowmobiling since he was a child.  He received his first sled a 1992 Arctic Cat Panther Deluxe 440 in 2002 as a Christmas gift from his parents and his passion for snowmobiling flourished.  Both his father – Kevin Good and uncle - Allan Good in the past were heavily involved with the snowmobile federation as president’s of the Restigouche Timber Trail and the Restigouche Snowmobile Club.  Kyle always enjoyed tagging along on permit checks and installing proper signage in the Restigouche Timber Trails area.

On February 14th, 2011 Kyle was hired as the provincial trail manager for the NBFSC.  His role in the organization includes all aspects of mapping, including the production of the paper maps, interactive trail maps, apps and other digital mapping.  Trail signage where he applies his skills to annual classroom training courses in the fall of every year and conducts trail checks throughout the winter season annually.  Grooming also falls under Kyle’s responsibilities. He has helped NBFSC induct the entire fleet of groomers with GPS units. Amongst many other things, he is responsible for the groomer workshop held biannually in February and a biannual classroom training course in the fall.  Kyle attends several government meetings on behalf of the 49 clubs, two of which are known best as Provincial Trail Planning Committee (PTPC) for processing trail amendment applications and the International Snowmobile Congress (ISC) annually as he sits on the International Board of IASA (International Association of Snowmobile Administrators).

Kyle continues to enjoy driving snowmobiles in the Restigouche area but is also very fortunate to experience the entire province.  Working with the NBFSC has allowed him to make relationships province wide.  His other hobbies include canoeing on the Restigouche River, boating, ATV’ing, hunting, snowboarding, camping, farming and many other outdoor activities.

Kyle is married to Emily (Doull) Good from Campbellton, NB. Kyle and Emily met many moons ago. Both were attending senior years in high school and rarely missed a weekend snowboarding on Sugarloaf Mountain. On February 22nd, 2018 Kyle and Emily were fortunate to give birth to their first baby girl, Addison Good.  Addison has already received her first snowmobile, a 2013 Polaris Pro 120 for the 2021 season where she will begin to enjoy the sport as much as we have.
