New Photo Contest And Online Community Created For Local Snowmobilers In Alberta

A new website has been created to get the message out about safe snowmobiling across Alberta, Canada.

Sled'N Snap (www.slednsnap.com) is an online photo contest and community forum that celebrates snowmobiling in Alberta. The Alberta Snowmobile Association and Flaman Group of Companies recently launched the new website as a way to reach out to the sledding community.

"This website and contest is a great way for us to connect with Alberta sledders," Chris Brookes, Executive Director of the Alberta Snowmobile Association, said. "We are always looking for fun ways to communicate with Alberta snowmobilers and to offer them some information at the same time. Sled'N Snap provides links to our website with tips, trail maps and safety materials, so it's as useful as it is fun."

Sled'N Snap's premise is simple-visitors to the site upload their photos in a variety of categories like Trail/Scenery/Wildlife, Youth and Family, Action! or Club Rides. At the end of March, the photos will be judged by an association panel who will select a group of finalists and then the public will vote for the grand prize winner.

Up for grabs is the use of the amazing, fully-loaded Stealth aluminum enclosed sled trailer for one year. There are also category prizes from the Alberta Snowmobile Association and every entry is eligible for the random draw for a new two-place aluminum tilt trailer from Flaman Trailers.

And it's a way for snowmobilers across the province to share memories and common experiences. They can leave comments on photos or share pictures on Facebook. One of the submitted photos is of a cabin that's used as a shelter and people have commented on how they remember going to that same place.

The submission period for the photo contest ends March 31, 2012. To be eligible for any prizes, entrants must have a registered sled. For more information, visit www.slednsnap.com
