SnoRiders’ SledTown ShowDown is the most popular snowmobiling competition in Western Canada. Ever since SledTown ShowDown began back in 2015, sledders in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have been voting and rallying support for their favourite snowmobiling destinations. With seven seasons in the books, SledTown ShowDown has a varied and captivating history. Below, you’ll find every notable result from each year of SledTown ShowDown, from provincial winners to contest champions (including 2016 when Houston, B.C., and Yorkton, Saskatchewan, tied because of a voting issue in the finals).

New to the contest? This is how it works: we start with 16 destinations from each Western province in Canada. Each round, our readers vote for their favourites and the destinations get whittled down. By Round 4, we’ll have our provincial winners, which will go head-to-head until only one town remains to be crowned the 2021 SledTown ShowDown Champion of Western Canada.
Here’s what the winner gets:
A shiny SledTown trophy, bragging rights and feature articles on SnoRidersWest.com. Plus, it is a chance to raise positive awareness of snowmobiling and to recognize local clubs for all their hard work.
