Snowmobile the Mighty Mac

December 15, 2018 all-day
Mackinac Bridge
St. Ignace Events Committee

Deadline is Dec. 8 to register online.

They will take calls to register until 3 days before the Crossing. Commemorative shirts will be available on the registration form, pay the Museum and pick up at the Mackinac Grille, the day of the ride.Vintage snowmobiles will again have the opportunity to cross the Mackinac Bridge under their own power this winter.

This event is being held in conjunction with the Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum in Naubinway and the St. Ignace Events Committee.  In 2016 we had 39 snowmobiles so let’s double or triple that number for 2017!  Registration deadline is Monday, December 11.

We ask your shirt size in the registration but shirts are not free. If you choose a shirt size you can pick it up and pay for it at the event.

Participating snowmobiles must be outfitted with wheel kits to cross the bridge, and the wheels must be at least two inches wide and have no studs or cleats.  Snowmobiles must also be 25 years old or older to participate.

Snowmobiles will stage in the parking lot of Colonial Michilimackinac in Mackinaw City (see schedule below).

The registration fee of $35 per snowmobile includes the bridge fare, lunch and awards in St. Ignace after the crossing.  If you have a passenger, their cost is $30.
