WHY WE RAISED OUR PRICES
This year the Swift Diamond Riders Snowmobile Club decided to raise the NH SnoDeo’s gate price to $10 per person per day. Children 10 and under will continue to get in for free.
The SnoDeo is the key fundraiser for the Swift Diamond Riders Snowmobile Club which is a non-profit organization. The cost of admission, as well sponsorships and vendor fees helps the club with all of its operations through the year; most importantly, maintenance of over 100 miles of snowmobile trails.
The trails are maintained mostly by volunteers. However, the cost of buying and maintaining groomers, other club machines and infrastructure like the warming hut runs into the thousands of dollars. Most everyone who helps run the club and SnoDeo are also volunteers. Yet, every year our costs increase.
We understand that your costs go up every year as well. There was much debate about raising the gate fees, but we felt the only way for SnoDeo to continue to grow, was to increase the price. We feel we’re delivering a fun day and our gate fees are comparable to other events in NH.
We offer the opportunity to test ride every snowmobile you can physically ride in a day if you wanted to from Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski Doo and Yamaha.
Our vintage snowmobile tent is returning.
On Saturday, there’s the Rave X freestyle show.
And this year, we’ll be on our new site behind the warming hut which the club has invested heavily in to clear and prepare.
So, we hope you’ll understand the reasons behind the increase of our gate fees, feel you get a great day our in New Hampshire’s beautiful North Country and will still support the SnoDeo. We’re very excited to be celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, and having winter back.
See you March 3rd & 4th. It’s coming fast now.
