At long last, the greatest sledding competition is finally back for an 8th edition—SledTown ShowDown 2022 has begun! Last year, Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba, vanquished the competition to become SledTown ShowDown 2021 champion. We’ve had a new winner every year of the contest so there’s plenty of reason to think your favourite snowmobiling destination could be next, especially since SnoRiders’ readers directly contributed to this year’s field of SledTown competitors. It’s up to you to put your favourite snowmobiling destinations in a position to claim victory. The polls are open and it’s time to cast your votes in the 8th annual SledTown ShowDown. You can head over to the main contest page or vote by provincial bracket once a day until the current round closes:

British Columbia
Alberta
Saskatchewan
Manitoba

Round 1 runs February 8 to 20, 2022.

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 2022 SledTown ShowDown Champion of Western Canada. For a full account of previous SledTown ShowDowns, see our complete history of SnoRiders’ SledTown ShowDown.

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.

Social media plays a big role in this contest so be sure to hit “share” after you vote to let your friends know about the contest. You can also follow SnoRiders on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for quick updates during the contest. Feel free to tag us in photos and use the #SledTown2022 to promote your favourite town.
