We’re looking for reader-recommended trailside locations that you recommend for our third annual 101 Great Pitstops list.
For many sledheads the real reward of any great snowmobiling trip is the much-needed pitstop that fills both fuel tanks and bellies, while also offering a warm place to rest, or some entertainment before the next ride. Oftentimes many remote-locations can be the best-kept-secret of the snowmobiling world, but are also sometimes overlooked but those not in-the-know.
A good pitstop is any establishment within reach of trails for fueling sleds, that also offers your traditional “bar foods” such as cheeseburgers, French fries and warm beverages. But a great pitstop goes above and beyond – offering meals with hearty foods, snowmobiling-specific amenities to store riding gear and décor that reminisces 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 large, including clubs and trail-owners.
Do you know the spot we’re describing? If so, who better to name as one the “best trailside pitstops in the U.S.” than your own favorites? To come up with the list of 101 Great Snowmobile Pitstops, we’re seeking expert advice from those who know best – you!
If you know of a great pitstop that deserves to be noticed, please email NLongworth@SnowGoer.com with your nomination, or add yours in the comments below, but do try and avoid ones already submitted last year – we’re looking for the best fresh ideas!
Be sure to include the pitstop’s official name/location, as well as, a brief description of what you think makes the place great. Last year we received nearly 200 submissions, so please do be as specific as possible! And if you can, please send along a photo as a JPEG attachment (we’ll choose, then print our favorite).
