It looks like conditions will be optimal for the World Snowmobile Invasion (WSI) next week in Whitecourt, Alberta. Right when organizers were getting worried about the lack of snow, the skies opened up and dumped about 13 centimetres of fresh stuff on the town. And more is expected to fall over the weekend. That makes WSI event planner Cindy Brooks very happy.
“We have perfect conditions and the trails are awesome,” said Brooks on Thursday afternoon (February 5th)
According to Environment Canada, the snow won’t let up until Monday. The rest of the week looks mostly clear with daytime temperatures ranging from -8 C to 3 C.
Ticket packages for the WSI are selling fast so if you haven’t gotten yours, now’s the time. Tickets to some events may be available on the day of, but to ensure your access to the Western Canadian Festival on Friday night and the Secure Energy World Snowmobile Showcase on Saturday night, you will need to pre-purchase a ticket package. See the website for details.
Don’t forget, the Whitecourt Trailblazers will be attempting to break a Guinness World Record for largest snowmobile parade. You can be a part of the action. It’s free to participate and registration begins at 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 12.
