Enjoy a full day of fun with your family and friends and help kids with physical disabilities succeed!

On Saturday, February 10, 2018, snowmobilers from across Northwestern Ontario and Northeastern Minnesota are invited to hit the trails for the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids and become part of the most successful winter fundraiser for Easter Seals Ontario. Now in its 15th year, the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids has raised more than $400,000 in support of children and youth with physical disabilities in the community.

Minimum $100 is required to participate and includes dinner and live entertainment.

To celebrate our 15th year at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino, with every $100 in pledges you raise, you will receive a ballot to win 1 of 15 Snowarama gifts, including a TRIP TO LAS VEGAS!

The event includes a bonfire on the trail, a fabulous dinner and live entertainment Saturday night.  There will be prizes for the top fundraisers, including a trip to Vegas, as well as additional prizes throughout the weekend.  A minimum of $100 in pledges is required to participate.  The more pledges you bring in, the more chances you have to win a trip to Vegas and more prizes.

Grand Portage Lodge has reserved rooms for the weekend for Snowarama participants only.  Please call Brittany at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino at 1.800.543.1384  to book a room reserved for Snowarama participants. Grand Portage features 100 miles of well-groomed snowmobile trails, with no permit required for riders.  Trail permits will be required for those riders that venture off the Grand Portage Reservation trails for $51 USD. Minnesota trail permits are available at Ryden’s 66, who can be contacted at 218.475.2433.

Snowarama has two routes to choose from at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino. A long ride that is approximately 120 miles and a short ‘local ride’ on the reservation that is approximately 35 miles.

Funds raised at this event help provide financial assistance for children with physical disabilities for essential mobility and communication equipment and fully accessible summer camping opportunities. Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids would not be a success without the support of the snowmobiling community. We sincerely hope we can count on your support and participation again this year.
