Default Bent Ski Classic ~ Adventure Run Returns 2-11-2017!

The Straits Area Snowmobile Club and the St. Ignace Events Committee are bringing back the Bent Ski Classic – Snowmobile Adventure Run! Wondering what to do on a lazy Saturday Snowmobiling day? Head to St. Ignace on February 11th. For years you have heard about the fantastic trails in St. Ignace, now is the time to experience them with a classic family friendly adventure run, and here is the best part – the Events Committee is providing the who thing for FREE! That's right, no registration fee, for a full day of fun on the trails, and ending with cash and other prizes. Registration and conclusion will be downtown St. Ignace overlooking Mackinac Island.

This is not a traditional poker run, people are tired of that sort of thing. This will take you out on the trails, you will have to use your brain, maybe do some research, and even do some light off-trail stuff to figure everything out. You may need to even complete a specific set of tasks along the way. It will be fun for the whole family because... Everything the St. Ignace Events Committee does is a family friendly event, this one is no exception.

The event requires registration, that is how you will know where to go and what to do, the Events Committee is providing the event FREE of Charge! You can register at the Mackinac Grill downtown St. Ignace from 8-9pm on Friday the 10th, or 8-10am Sat the 11th.

Schall Automotive of Monroe, MI is excited to announce that they are sponsoring and covering all of the cost of a trailside stop at the intersection of trail #471 & #2 (our traditional "Deere Feed" location in the heart of our trails). There will be a warming fire, free hot dogs, coffee & hot chocolate. Trail Stop will be open from 11am - 2pm. I am going to try to schedule a groomer to stop by and give tours or rides, however that will hinge on grooming conditions and or volunteer drivers schedule.

Participants will need to return to the Mackinac Grill where completed tasks are turned in and entered into the contest for cash and other prizes.

So, if you would like to give something a little different a try, head on UP to St. Ignace the weekend of the 11th. Hope to see you there.

Here is a blast from the past:

Funny how I look up old pics or articles, and always find a few of the same hooligans showing up.

I'd have to say I think Neil is aging very well. Hard to believe it was like 7 years ago when they started cracking down on the noise levels.

I was asked on another website how long the adventure run is.

I just did a test on google earth, and it looks to be about 125 miles if you did everything and did it in a fairly efficient route. Lots of places to go, and you can do them in any order and choose how to get there so it will be a full day of riding, and almost 100% on Straits trails.
