With the colder temperatures and snowflakes in the air, one can only think that winter is right around the corner in Old Forge. And with winter comes winter sports, especially snowmobiling.

The 36th Annual Snodeo Weekend is the Central Adirondack Association’s kick off to the snowmobile season on December 7, 8 and 9 at the George T. Hiltebrant Recreation Center.

All four major snowmobile manufacturers will be displaying their 2013 machines as well as offering a chance to win one in this year’s Snodeo raffle.

For a $20 raffle ticket, the grand prize winner will get their choice of one of four sleds: a 2013 Arctic Cat F 1100 LXR from Big Moose Arctic Cat, a 2013 Polaris Rush Pro-R Retro from Don’s Polaris, a 2013 Ski Doo GSX LE 600 E-TEC from Smith Marine or a 2013 Yamaha FX Nytro from Big Moose Yamaha.

In addition there are five cash prizes from $100 to $1,000.

Tickets are on sale now at the Old Forge Visitor Information Center, at all of the snowmobile dealerships listed above or, new this year, online at
