Trailblazers Family Day Sled Ride A Success

The Whitecourt Trailblazers annual Family Day snowmobile rally was another success this year.

Over 500 riders came out to ride in the two-day rally Saturday and Sunday.

The event featured two different routes each day with 3 checkpoints, snacks along the trails, and lots of prizes for adult and child riders.

Trailblazers President Dan Guenette on seeing all the families come out.

Guenette says they see more female riders and families taking up snowmobiling now than in the past.

He also says the trails this year are in excellent condition and look the best the club has seen in them in the last 15 to 20 years.

Prizes were drawn at the end of each day. The grand prize draw for a Polaris snowmobile was held Sunday night, and Whitecourt resident Taylor Kirkland came away as the winner of the new sled.
