For many sledheads the real reward of any great snowmobiling trip is the much-needed pitstop that fills stomachs and maybe sleds, while also offering a warm place to rest, or some entertainment before the next ride. Oftentimes a remote-location can be the best-kept-secret of the snowmobiling world.
A good pitstop is any establishment within reach of snowmobile trails for fueling sleds, that also offers a traditional menu of warm foods such as cheeseburgers, French fries and warm beverages. But a great pitstop goes above and beyond – offering hearty and imaginative dishes, snowmobiling-specific amenities to store riding gear and décor that’s reminiscent of snowmobiling’s past, present and future (such as vintage photos, trail maps and more). It also has an alliance with the snowmobiling community at around it, including clubs and trail-owners.
