They hold races where Snowmobiles sometimes called skidoo’s pull really crazy people on skis that love to go really fast. They start at the top of a 1,700-foot vertical double black diamond mountain. Send a skier plunging down it as fast as possible, hook them up at the bottom with a tricked-out snowmobile then race up the side of another 1,500-foot mountain at nearly 80 mph before the skier then plummets down the mountain to the eventual finish line. The race course itself totals 5 total miles in length however the races aren’t the only thing that draws more than 15,000 visitors every year. They also celebrate the return of the Sun after a 6 month absence.
