Women snowmobilers from Alberta, B.C. and the state of Washington braved treacherous winter driving conditions to attend the 2012 Ladies Ride in Revelstoke, B.C. The event took place on March 3 at Boulder Mountain in Revelstoke.

According to Kathy Burke, who is vice-president of the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club and organizer of the annual Ladies Ride, there were 38 women in attendance at this year’s event. Burke said many of them have attended the event in the past. She expected the numbers to be higher for this year; however, closures on the highways leading into Revelstoke due to inclement weather conditions may have been the reason why some were not able to attend.

A dinner and social gathering was held at a local establishment in Revelstoke after the ride. The dinner included draw prizes and an auction, which raised $2,500 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
