Reflecting on the recently concluded Powerboaters Snowmobile Rally from January 25th to 28th at the Saratoga Hot Springs Resort in Saratoga, Wyoming, it’s safe to say the event lived up to its highly anticipated status. Attendees reveled in the thrill of the Rally, and the festivities extended beyond with music and an exciting awards ceremony, making it a weekend to remember.
Organized by Michael “Doc” Janssen, renowned for his world championships, pleasure boat ventures, and medical leadership, the event brought together enthusiasts from across the country and Canada for some action in the snow. Janssen, the owner of the resort and a founding spine surgeon, ensured that the gathering was nothing short of exhilarating.
One such enthusiast, Vinnie Diorio of Wisconsin, a familiar face in the Powerboaters Snowmobile Rally, couldn’t help but express his excitement. As the owner and throttleman of the SV Offshore/Rollin Transport Super Cat-class team, Diorio, along with his wife Danielle, found the Wyoming snowmobiling experience to be a delightful contrast to their usual rides back home. Describing the event as a “family reunion,” Diorio highlighted the unique camaraderie that this annual gathering fosters, bringing together familiar faces from boat racing and poker runs.
