From skiing to snowmobiling, chain saws to wood stoves, plow trucks to hunting.

cities; Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, and Lansing. The state of Michigan is loaded with
winter folks wanting to see what you have to offer for the upcoming winter season.

competing in various events. We have 4x4 rock crawling trucks, climbing over obstacles too big to

they do it. A few years ago we began lawn mower racing, boy do they draw a crowd. It’s like a
scaled down version of NASCAR dirt track racing. Lastly, the biggest event and the longest run-

country, with over 600 entries each year, where professional factory teams drive to prove who is
KING. Camping sites are available, so fans have the convenience of an entire weekend of winter
