Yes, you read that right — escape summer with Ski-Doo snowmobiles at the official start of winter, the annual Hay Days event Sept. 7-8, in North Branch, Minnesota. Call us crazy, but there are actually people who look forward to winter; known as winter worshippers, these folks and many who flat out know how to make the best of all seasons, look forward to escaping summer and embracing the snow and cold.

Join us at the BRP booth featuring Ski-Doo snowmobiles and Can-Am products that provide those escapes and great riding experiences shared with family and friends. The large display will feature new riding gear, sportswear, key accessories and product displays, plus unique experiences like the Escape Mountain Wheel of (Mis)Fortune Challenge where contestants can win prizes and a Can-Am remote-control off-road course to test your skill.

Product Specialists along with Ski-Doo’s Brand Ambassadors, X-Team racers and accessory and clothing specialists will be on hand to answer questions and help you get the most out of your rides. The 2020 MXZx 600RS snocross racing sled will be unveiled at 10 a.m. Saturday with a special limited-edition Blair Morgan T-shirt available right after – and Blair will be there to sign it for fans. Renowned Side by Side racer Kyle Chaney will have his Pro 4 off road racing truck on display in the Can-Am area also.

On Saturday at 4:30 PM there will be a special advance screening of the Escape Mountain series and a Question and Answer session with the athletes afterwards. The Yellow carpet rolls out at 4:00 for the best seating.

Special incentives on sleds will also return as part of all fall shows starting at Hay Days. Riders looking for 2020 clothing or accessories can try items on and learn more about them in the huge air-conditioned gear and accessories display. They can also enter for a chance to win a 2020 or 2021 sled of their choice. Follow Ski-Doo Facebook Events page for the list of all other fall show info.
