What Can We Do This Winter in the Kawarthas – Part 2!

 Mark your calendars for February 20 – 21 and

February 27 – 28th

Enjoy the excitement of the Amsoil Kawartha Cup Snowcross Races Feb 20th and 21st

The Canadian Snowcross Racing Association (CSRA) is the governing body that organizes, promotes and regulates snowmobile competitions in Canada – primarily in Ontario and Quebec. And the races are coming to the Lindsay Exhibition Fairgrounds Feb 20-21!


Professional snowmobile racing is a rapidly expanding sport and Snowcross is the most popular form of snowmobile racing. Snowcross offers high flying aerial displays on a compact track. Competitors race around tracks featuring tight turns, banked corners, and a variety of jumps allowing racers to catch what is referred to as “big air” in full view of lucky spectators.


Between 10 and 12 events are held each season from October through to April. The series attracts thousands of spectators, some who travel from one competition to the next.

If you have not been involved in snowmobiling before, and especially racing, you might be surprised to learn that the youngest competitors are as young as 4-6 years old! They are restricted to a speed limit of 12 mph.


For a complete list of the ages and categories for competitors, see the Snowcross Website at www.snowcross.com. Call 905-722-7771 for more information.



Take your family and friends to Brimfest

from February 27th at 9 a.m. until February 28th at 4:00 p.m.


Brimacombe is a not for profit organization dedicated to their approximately 3,000 members – both skiers and snowboarders. They boast over 15,000 visits annually.

The Brimacombe websites assures their visitors that they “do not support Winter Blues, February Blahs and/or Cabin Fever!” And that is good to know! Where January was featured as “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month”, the end of February will be a weekend long celebration on the slopes – perfect for the whole family.


The event, called Brimfest, is sponsored by KX96 and 94.9 The Rock – so you can be sure the music will be great! In addition to the music, the organizers are promising lots of different events for the whole family, displays, competitions, giveaways – and more!
