Sno-Dak News (SDN): Tell us about the Cavalier Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Center?
Bryan McCoy (BM): The Cavalier Chamber and Economic Development Center is unique in that it is a “one stop shop” for all things in Cavalier, North Dakota. Responsibilities include everything from tourism development, business recruitment and retention, to marketing and promotion.
SDN: How did you hear about Snowmobile North Dakota? BM: I was looking at ways to enhance winter tourism and snowmobiling in Cavalier and came across the organizations website.
SDN: Are there any recreational dealers in the area that cater to snowmobilers? BM: There are currently not snowmobile dealers in the area, however, we do offer other items. The He-Mart on Main Street stocks riding gear, and so do the two hardware stores. SDN: What makes Cavalier, ND standout from other snowmobile destinations? BM: Cavalier and the Northeastern North Dakota trails have very unique terrain that ranges from flat prairie to deep gorges. Trails in our area also connect to others in Canada and Minnesota for an international experience.
SDN: What kinds of services and conveniences does Cavalier, ND offer to snowmobilers? BM: We are a snowmobile friendly community with several miles of groomed trails, signage, and other features to make for a safe and fun riding experience.
SDN: How does the Cavalier Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Center make every Cavalier, ND vacation better? BM: We like to give personalized service. The Cavalier Chamber & Economic Development is a one person office, so I can help tailor any vacation plans. SDN: Why did the companies choose to support Snowmobile North Dakota and provide a vacation package for HayDays Craze? BM: Cavalier experiences a lot of summer visitors because of nearby Icelandic State Park, but tourism is less during the colder months. The city and region is striving to become the premier outdoor recreation area in eastern North Dakota.
