5 reasons to attend Hay Days 2019

    There’s a buzz in the air as 2020 Ski-Doo snowmobiles have already started arriving at dealerships across the snowbelt. That can only mean one thing – Hay Days 2019 is almost here! While most of us don’t need any motivation to start planning for the “Official Start of Winter,” here’s a few extra incentives to make the trek to North Branch, Minn., September 7-8, 2019.

     

    Start Your Escape

    Be among the very first to see winter’s ultimate escape room at the world premiere of the Escape Mountain video series. In case you’ve been living under a rock, you can watch the trailer here. It’s riders vs. Mother Nature as Ski-Doo Ambassadors Rob Alford, Ashley Chaffin and Tony Jenkins join forces with Red Bull athletes Sean Pettit and Craig McMorris take That Ski-Doo Feeling to the extreme in a battle of survival to escape the mountain. You’ll see it first at Hay Days.

    Exclusively at Hay Days 2019, one-of-a-kind Blair Morgan t-shirts will be available for purchase in the Ski-Doo booth at 10:30 A.M. Saturday and 10:00 A.M. Sunday. Not only that, but “Superman 7c” himself will be on hand Saturday morning signing shirts for those lucky enough to get their hands on one. Quantities are limited, and availability is first come, first serve.

     

    Ski-Doo 2020 Race Sled Reveal

    Join Ski-Doo riders and race team personnel Saturday at 10 a.m. for the unveiling of the 2020 Ski-Doo MXZx 600RS Snocross race sled.
