It’s an ode to sledheads, paddle tracks and the sweet, sweet smell of pre-mix.
The Fernie Snowmobile Association is hosting Sledfest 2018, a three-day series of sled-related events.
From film screenings, snowdrags and even a vintage sled poker ride, the festivities celebrate one of Fernie’s fastest growing snowsports.
The fun kicks off on Friday, February 16, with a film screening at the Griz Bar.
FSA will be showing the latest Thunderstruck films and will serve up a Bourbon BBQ rib dinner.
On Saturday the club is hosting a vintage snowmobile poker ride, starting at the Corbin Staging area. Poker hands are $20 each and there will be cash prizes as well as trophies for the best vintage sled, best restored, best original and a judge’s choice award.
On Sunday, the weekend wraps up with the Fernie Snow Drags. High performance snowmobiles will face off on a prepared snow track.
There will be six different categories for racers, ranging from stock snowmobiles to mountain sleds and open modifications.
