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

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