The 2018 International Snowmobile Rally is in the books and was a great success. The weather and snow were perfect and the combination of people really added to experience. Whether in the snow, hot springs or in costume this group knows how to have fun!

Boating Friends Come Together for One-of-a-Kind Snowy Range Experience
by Jason Johnson – SpeedontheWater.com
As I sat in the third row of our rented SUV on the drive from Saratoga, Wyo., to the Denver airport, I could only think about my friends in the powerboat community who came to Saratoga Hot Springs Resort for the fourth annual International Snowmobile Rally from as far as Florida, Michigan, New York and even Toronto who had to haul their snowmobiles back home (fortunately the attendee from Brazil rented his equipment).
My travel day back to California with my wife and good friends after a couple of days tackling the trails in and around Medicine Bow National Forest seemed like a breeze in comparison so hopefully everyone had safe travels as I look forward to seeing them again soon at an event with warmer temperatures, more sunshine and less layers of clothing.
Along with the event’s founder and host Dr. Michael “Doc” Janssen—the performance boat junkie who rides a snowmobile like he drives a raceboat, fast and on rails—the entire team at Saratoga Resort organized a smooth, fun-filled event with terrific hot lunches on the trails, fantastic dinners and excellent beer courtesy of the resort’s accompanying Snowy Mountain Brewery.
Thanks to all of that—and the amazing teepee-covered hot springs and heated pool—our group has already marked the dates for the 2018 event (Jan. 24-27) and even invited a few more friends to join us next year. I have a feeling the fifth annual event is going to be even better as the buzz continues to build.
