Levi LaVallee is excited to announce that he will be riding and taking in all things “Hometown,” this weekend in Cochrane. The hometown ride is part of an initiative on promoting the lifestyle of the sport and getting to know hometowns that are key to the sport of snowmobiling.

“Levi is one of the most influential ambassadors to the sport of snowmobiling, and to have him join us on the trip to Cochrane this weekend is incredible,” commented Matt Clark of On Snow Magazine. “The trail systems within and around Cochrane are some of the best in the province, and we are really excited to show them off to Levi.”
