The second and third day of the 26th annual Snowmobile Expo and Powersports Show in West Yellowstone, MT, had even more events and activities than day one.

After the unseasonably warm weather on the first day, Saturday’s weather returned to what you’d expect even though the high was still about 42 degrees F. The chilly breeze and intermittent rain and snow throughout the day kept a brisk edge in the air.

Of course, that didn’t stop or slow down the full line-up of events. Outside at the race track, the kids kicked off the day with the 120 and junior snocross racing with the vintage oval racing taking place next.

There were free 120 snowmobile rides for kids ages 3-12 and demo rides on the 2017 MotoTrax snowbike as well as the 2017 Arctic Cat snowmobile models.

The Western States Vintage Snowmobile Association (WSVSA) Vintage Snowmobile Show also took place next to the race track and showcased the wide spectrum of snowmobile history featuring the year 1975. Prizes and special awards were given and an awards banquet was held later that night.

Continuing from Friday on both Saturday and Sunday, the exhibit hall inside the Holiday Inn Convention Center showcased hundreds of aftermarket products and Arctic Cat, Ski-Doo and Yamaha were all there with the new 2017 models.

Spectators of all ages and riding backgrounds were able to enjoy the free Swoop Production show on Saturday afternoon that featured freestyle street bike stunts. Though the pavement was wet, the FMX riders still put on an impressive display before a large crowd.

Saturday evening’s entertainment consisted of Cody Canada, The Departed and Sawyer Brown. Octane Addictions once again had the freestyle air show between the bands featuring Willie Elam, Colten Moore and Josh Penner, all X-Game freestyle riders.

Sunday was all about the snowbikes. Round 3 of the National Snowbike Race Series took place that morning on the track and on-site demo rides were available to those 18 and older. The high that was day was close to 36 degrees F.
