Grand Portage 10th Annual Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids

Saturday, February 02, 2013

91.5 CKPR, Rock 94, 103.5 The Thunder, Global Thunder Bay, CKPR Thunder Bay and the Thunder Bay Source are proud to support The Grand Portage 10th Annual Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids!

Grab your helmets and winter gear because the coolest snowmobile event hits the trails on Saturday, February 2, kicking off the 2013 fundraising season for Easter Seals Ontario.

Once again, the Thunder Bay Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids will head south of the border to Grand Portage, 45 minutes from Thunder Bay, attracting snowmobilers from across northwestern Ontario and Minnesota to enjoy some of the finest groomed trails in northern Minnesota.

The event is generously sponsored by Grand Portage Lodge and Casino, the Grand Portage Trail Riders, and the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. 

Snowarama is one of our most popular fundraisers in the winter season, bringing together the community and a passion for winter sports, all for a great cause.

All Snowarama participants will enjoy a complimentary dinner and the Saturday night dance, featuring Westside. Snowarama is truly a family event - participants can enjoy the trails, heated pool and sauna, as well as other amenities at Grand Portage Lodge & Casino.

Minnesota trail permits are $16 (available at Ryden’s 66) and will be required for those riders that venture off the Grand Portage Reserve trails.

Over the past 10 years, Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Snowarama has raised over $230,000 for children and youth with physical disabilities across Ontario.  Proceeds help provide financial assistance for costly mobility and communication equipment, as well as fully accessible summer camp opportunities.
