Got Trails?—The 2016 Early Season Power Tour Is On!

Last year the winners were the Sault Trailblazers in Algoma Country. Starting out of Sault Ste. Marie’s new Yamaha dealership, Premier Yamaha Powersports, they celebrated with a two day tour that covered some of the most inspiring sections of the Algoma region’s snowmobile trails.

A lively discussion covering the state of snowmobiling in the North and the resurgence of Algoma’s snowmobile trails were front and centre, as was the incredible story of how the dedication and hard work of volunteers got these trails open in advance of other regions across the province despite daily breakdowns of technical equipment.
