Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Free Ride Weekend a Success!

Snoman (Snowmobilers of Manitoba) Inc. would like to thank the many riders who joined us on the trails for the first ever Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Free Ride Weekend – Sled without Borders.  Non-Snopass holders could access a temporary weekend pass by visiting the Snoman website and registering their snowmobile.
“While we started on Saturday with frigid temperatures, it did warm up and the riders I have spoken with relayed that the trails were great”, said Yvonne Rideout, Executive Director.  “We had a lot of people registered from Manitoba and also from Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Minnesota, and North Dakota.”
The total registrations for the weekend came in at 863 and that included 245 Winnipeg residents who enjoyed our trails.
Registrants had a chance to win 1 of 4 gift baskets generously donated by Snoman’s Gold Rider Partner, Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries.  The draws will took place on February 18 and the winners were notified.
“An event such as this is a great way to boast tourism and showcase the natural beauty of our province,” said Rideout.  “Rural communities, restaurants, gas bars, and the accommodation sector also benefit greatly from this event.”
Snoman Inc., a not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to providing strong leadership and support to its member clubs to develop safe and environmentally responsible snowmobile trails to further the enjoyment of organized recreational snowmobiling in Manitoba.
