SNOW DOWN
The ultimate Snowbike event. Sponsored by Klim, Yeti Snow MX, Jones Powersports, Municipality of Wawa,Beta Motorcycles, C3 Power Sports, PST Engine Jackets The Wawa Snow Down is a two or optional three day event for Snowbikers of all levels. This is the Powder Hound Boondocking experience you have been waiting for! Challenge yourself and your fellow riders by finding all the GPS waypoint challenges that have been placed in multiple area's throughout the two days of riding. The more waypoint's you find, the more points you will get to trade in for chances to win prizes from our sponsors.Two days not enough for you? No Problem! Register for the 3 day event and Team Rally Connex will take you on a custom Boondocking adventure you wont soon forget.

Hosted in the beautiful town of Wawa Ontario Canada. The event leaves from and returns to the town of Wawa where accommodations & restaurants are available. Each day takes you with your Snowbike to multiple locations in the Wawa area. Deep snow with various conditions are sure to please even the best "Boondockers" around. The snow fall in this area rivals the type of depth that we see in the mountains of western Canada. Never ending terrain that you couldn't track out even if you where riding for over a week straight. Rally Connex has been riding and scouting this area for over 7 years and we still continue to find new and exciting places to Snowbike up in this area. So let us take you on your ultimate winter adventure.



REALLY! SNOW BIKING IN WAWA?
Ever wonder if there is a deep powder Snowbike haven in Ontario Canada? Well there is and we got it! The Boondocking for Snowbikes in Wawa is rich with deep snow, hill climbs, rock ledge jumps and snow drifts the size of small cliffs. With over a 5000 plus acres of land permitted for snow bikes. Who wants to see a trail with that much backcountey access? All 2 or 3 days we will lead you into epic boondocking locations that will have fresh lines all day long. Every day you will transit your bike to remote locations 10 to 60 minutes away from the cabins. Plenty of space on the support vehicle to pack extra fuel and food for your tip each day. Every morning hot soup and light snacks will be provided for your daily lunches. For more info on your Snow Down experience read below.

 

HOW THE EVENT WORKS
First off you get to choose from a 2 day or 3 day event. That basically means you ride Saturday & Sunday with the Monday being your 3rd day option. The Riding time per day lasts roughly 5 to 6 hours each day. When you arrive on Friday evening Rally Connex will collect your GPS to load your Challenge Waypoint's for the next 2 days. Then every morning at 8:00am we will meet at The Best Northern Resort for a riders meeting briefing and then head out to one of our many "Boondocking Locations" where you will start to find your waypoint challenge markers. Some waypoint's will be easy to ride to and some will be hard. Hard waypoint challenges will reward you with more points than the easy ones. Reach the waypoint, collect the token. Reach as many waypoint's as possible in the allocated safety time window.



RULES
You are not permitted to ride on your own. You can pair up with anyone else riding the event or get in a group with other riders to work together and find the waypoint challenges. There are some safety items we highly recommend you have in order to compete. See safety item listing below. You must return to the Starting / Ending area 30 minutes before dusk. This is for your own safety. You will probably not make it to every single waypoint. So, choose wisely and make them count!



GPS OPERATIONS
We will use Garmin GPS to navigate our way around. If you do not own a GPS you can rent one from Rally Connex during your registration process. To See a list of accepted GPS'S please go to our GPS Info Page.There will be over 20 Challenge waypoint locations to choose from. Activate the challenge way points in any order you wish. You have the freedom to go where you please to reach the waypoint's. Some will be accessible by existing trails and some will will 100% Boondocking. Once you reach your desired waypoint challenge you can then activate the next desired waypoint to continue tearing up some pow!

 


WEATHER
Times out riding will greatly depend on weather conditions. The Wawa area can get very cold at times and have vicious winter storms. This normally has never stopped us from heading out so please don't be that one person that wasn't prepared for the winter conditions.



AWARDS
When you arrive at the Sunday Night dinner banquet and awards ceremony located at the Roxy Bowling Alley (See after party info below) you will hand in your collected waypoint challenge tokens you acquired while out on your 2 days of riding. They will be transferred over into prize tickets and you can select what prizes you wish to win. Prizes and awards will be then handed out after dinner.
