The SnowTime Tourism Awards Are Back

Where is the best trail riding destination in the snowbelt? Which trailside restaurant serves up the best grub? Which hotel or resort best serves the need of snowmobilers? Where is the best place to go powder riding?

These are important questions, indeed, and who better to answer them than the readers of Snow Goer magazine and the visitors to With that in mind, Snow Goer is proudly bringing back the SnowTime Tourism Awards, sponsored by Hi Performance Engineering.

The SnowTime Awards date back to the early 1990s, when they were a staple in Snow Goer magazine. Then, the magazine used to mail out 2,000 ballots to a random cross-section of readers, who would name their favorites in a number of categories.

“We’re bringing the SnowTime Awards back to celebrate all that is great about snowmobiling,” said Snow Goer Editor John Prusak. “Snowmobiling is such a social sport – riders love to share their stories and talk about their favorite hotspots. Now, by utilizing our websites, more people can participate in the SnowTime Awards and truly select the best of the best. And, thanks to Hi Performance Engineering’s partnership, we even have a carrot to encourage voting.”

Randomly participants will be selected to win $25 gift certificates from Hi-Performance Engineering during each balloting period. Through the rest of January and February, categories for voting will appear each week to 10 days, with a new set of categories.

Starting today, readers and viewers can vote on the “Best Trail Riding Destination” and “Best Trailside Pitstop,” with a pitstop defined as a casual bar or restaurant with a friendly atmosphere and decent burgers, chicken fingers, pizzas or other inexpensive foods.

On January 23, the next round begins, with balloting in “Best Snowmobile Hotel or Resort” and “Best Powder Riding Destination.” Future categories include “Best Area For Nightlife,” “Your Dream Snowmobiling Destination,” “Best Trailside Restaurant (serves high-quality food)” and several more.
