If you thought SnoWest snowmobile shows were getting a little stale, then you need to attend this year’s Idaho Snowmobile Show in Boise, ID.
We have a host of new activities and seminars—along with all the snowmobile-related products you can think of—planned for this year’s snow show.
Once again the snow show is on a Friday and Saturday (Nov. 15-16) with show hours from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
The Idaho Snowmobile Show will be held at Expo Idaho on Glenwood Road in Boise, more specifically on the corner of Chinden Blvd. and Glenwood Road.
The Idaho Snowmobile Show is sponsored by SnoWest Magazine, the Idaho State Snowmobile Association and Allstate Insurance.
General admission at the door is $8, but if you buy your tickets in advance it’s only $6.50. Go to www.intermountainshow.com for more information on how to get your tickets in advance. Senior citizens and the military are $7, while children 12 and under are free.
We’re very excited about the new activities we have planned for this year’s show in Boise. All the details are on www.intermountainshow.com, but here are the highlights. Klim is sponsoring a photo booth where you can have your picture taken and put on a cover of SnoWest Magazine. MotorFist is having a contest where you can win an entire set of snowmobile gear including a jacket, bibs, boots, socks and gloves. All you have to do to win is be the fastest person to dress and undress in snowmobile gear.
There will be more than a half-doz en how-to video seminars (sponsored by Western Power Sports and Klim) that will cover such topics as Riding Tips For Women (Amber Holt), Trailers and Towing (Jon Reeder), Basic Tuning, Cleaning and On-The-Snow Adjustments (Dustin Pancheri), Old Reliable—Cleaning Up The Classics (Dustin Sweeten), Clutching (Dale Cutler), Tips To Reduce Weight (Rocky Young) and several more. A complete list can be found on the www.intermountainshow.com website.
Additionally, there will be a “Kid’s Corner” where kids can get their facesw painted along with several other activities.
We’ll once again have our SnoWest snowmobile project sled build (a 2014 Polaris Pro RMK) going on during the show as well as a vintage snowmobile display.
There’s more. Ultimax Belts will be giving away $400 cash to one lucky show attendee. As part of your admission you are eligible to win the cash giveaway. All you have to do is stop by the Ultimax Cash Giveaway booth to enter to win.
Arctic Cat, Polaris and Ski-Doo will all be at the show, showing off their 2014 sleds, as well as a few ATVs and side-by-sides.
Of course there will be plenty of aftermarket products, both new and old, giving you lots of options for your certain model year of sled. The swap meet, put on by the Cougar Mountain Snowmobile Club, will be indoors both days.
Those aftermarket companies that will be at the show won’t just have stuff for your sled but also for your body. There will be plenty of snowmobile clothing options this year at the Idaho Snowmobile Show. A complete list of vendors is available on the website.
If you’re looking for a new place to ride, you’ll find several resorts and chambers of commerce ready to show you all they have to offer. Several snowmobile trailer manufacturers will have trailers on display, allowing you to see the trailers in person and walk around and through them.
Be sure to stop by the SnoWest booth, inside the main doors, to play SnoWest Bingo. The grand prize is an Arctic Cat M 6000 Sno Pro as well as a ride with one of Arctic Cat’s mountain team members and a four-day stay at Three Bears Lodge in West Yellowstone, MT.
