We are still wait­ing for that snow! Hope­fully by the time this ar­ti­cle pub­lishes, we won’t have any wor­ries about too lit­tle snow. The South­ern Val­ley Trail Rid­ers As­so­ci­a­tion is ready to host the 2015 North Dakota Snow­mo­bile State Ride on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 7, 2015!

The last time the South­ern Val­ley Trail Rid­ers As­so­ci­a­tion was given the op­por­tu­nity to host the State Ride was in 2012, and even with a lack of snow, we all had a great time en­joy­ing the com­pany of new friends from across the state. We took to rid­ing in a cou­ple of buses and made all the stops along the trail. The lo­cal busi­nesses re­ally catered to us, and we were very thank­ful for their hos­pi­tal­ity. We hope you come down to the south­ern cor­ner of the state and join in the fun of the 2015 ND State Run! We can’t wait to see you! We are “Stuck on Snow, High on Win­ter­time”.
