Event benefits Minnesota snowmobile clubs.
One of the most anticipated events of the new snowmobiling season is the annual S.N.O.W. Fest held in Wahkon, Minnesota each December. This snowmobile-oriented festival showcases all the latest action snowmobile videos as well as classic snowmobile advertisements from the early days.
In addition to the annual screening of action videos, another S.N.O.W. Fest 5 highlight is its annual vintage sled show, which in the past has included the Polaris X-2 record speed sled and Belle Plaine, MN, resident Jason Johnson’s unique stretch chassis custom Zephyr 175. The one-of- a-kind stretch limo sled started out as a vintage Mercury snowmobile and features a custom-built hydrostatic drive powered by an 18-hp v-twin Briggs & Stratton four-stroke
The event draws pre-1980 snowmobiles from around the region that will be judged by International Snowmobile Hall of Famers Jerry Bassett and Dave Guenther, who will award unique S.N.O.W. Fest “snow flake” trophies for categories ranging from Best in Show to Survivor.
There will also be a groomer display and displays of modern sleds and gear that sharply contrast with the antique and vintage sleds.
S.N.O.W. Fest 5 Is a fundraiser for Mille Lacs Area Snowmobile Clubs. (This year’s proceeds will assist five area Snowmobile Clubs in hosting 2018 Minnesota Snowmobile Convention at Lake Mille Lacs.)
The annual Somewhere North of Wahkon snowmobile film festival will be held December 9, 2017 in Wahkon, Minnesota and be hosted by Muggs of Mille Lacs, a trailside icon located on the south shore of famed Mille Lacs lake.
