Snow Drags Set: Feb. 18 at Lake County Golf Course
It wasn’t too many years ago that there weren’t many winter events in Lake County. Sure, there’s always plenty to do in the snow when you live at 10,200 feet, but there weren’t many events on the calendar that would bring people into town. But in the past few years, grassroots efforts by hard-working Leadville folks have changed all that.
The Leadville High Altitude Snow Drags Races are another great example of grassroots efforts to bring more people up to Lake County during the winter. Sponsored by the High Riders Snowmobile Club (HRSC), 2017 will mark year four for an event the brings in snowmobilers from around the state, to compete for fun and prizes.
Competitors and fans have come to expect some demos available to check out, and a limit of 64 contestants, with double elimination divided into three classes: under 800cc, 800 class, and pro modified classes. Registration will begin at 9 a.m., racing at 10 a.m. at Mt. Massive Golf Course on Saturday, Feb. 18. Note: while there was another location sought for this year’s event, organizers have confirmed that it will be held at the golf course.
There’s still time to get involved in this year’s Leadville High Altitude Snowmobile Drags contact JR Halverson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 563-880-7526. Or connect with the High Riders Snowmobile Club Facebook Page.
