Now in its 23rd year, the event is an opportunity for snowmobile enthusiasts to come together and watch “out of the box” snowmobile testing and races of this year’s hottest sleds.
This year’s event, sponsored by American Snowmobiler Magazine, will feature sleds from Smith Marine in Old Forge, Fun Unlimited of Watertown, and D.D. Water Sports of Lowville. Action begins at 9 a.m.
Throughout the event, all of the new 120 and 150 horsepower class stock snowmobiles will be tested, as will the unlimited and ultra performer stock snowmobiles, which include the Arctic Cat Turbo and the Supercharged Yamaha Nytro.
Additionally, there will be a “Turbo Time” category to test the Arctic Cat Turbo sleds as well as a recently announced “King of the Hill” Shoot Out for 400 to 500 horsepower aftermarket sleds beginning at 9:30 a.m.
“There is a lot of excitement this year,” said Jim Czekal, co-organizer of the event, “and hopefully all the people who come to the Shoot Out will keep heading north to Old Forge for Snodeo.
The White Otter grounds will be opened to spectators at 8 a.m. Food will be available for purchase on-site throughout the event.
