Snowmobiling amenities in the Thompson area were recognized as some of the best in the province in a recent survey of snowmobilers conducted by SnoRiders Magazine.
Thompson and The Pas were voted the fourth-favourite scenic snowmobiling area in Manitoba, finishing behind Whiteshell Provincial Park, Nopiming Provincial Park and Pembina Valley.
Thompson was also the fourth-favourite powder riding in the province, based on readers' responses, finishing behind Steinbach, Nopiming Provincial Park and Duck Mountain.
In the favourite snowmoible dealer category, Rick's Marine in Thompson was also fourth, behind Northern Rentals & Power Products in Swan River, Enns Brothers in Winnipeg and Winnipeg Sport & Leisure.
The results of the 14th annual SnoRiders Choice Awards are based on the results of surveys that were published in last season's SnoRiders magazines.
Another snowmobiling-related award for the THompson area came from Snoman, which awarded the Snoman Excellence Award for the Outstanding Snowmobile Dealership for Manitoba to Nickel City Motors. This award recognizes dealerships for exceptional customer service and their efforts to support recreational snowmobiling in Manitoba.
