Mile Hi Snowmobile Club
Thank you for making the 5th Annual Heroes of Freedom Veterans Snowmobile Ride a success.
Thank you to our veterans for their service and riding with us. Thank you to our family and friends for their support. Thank you to our sponsors including G-Force Powersports, Lockheed Martin, Tobe Outerwear, Colorado Mountain Rentals, Klein E Group and On the Trail Rentals. Thank you to our volunteers. And thank you to the Mile Hi Snowmobile Club for hosting the ride.
The 2022 Heroes of Freedom Veterans Snowmobile Ride had a great day in the mountains west of Grand Lake with blue skies and white snow capped mountains. There were 52 veterans and 37 volunteers riding snowmobiles which made for a fun day. Riders rode nearly 50 miles looping from On the Trail Rentals to Idleglen to Gravel Mountain to Whiskey Park and back to On the Trail Rentals.
Steve Swatlowski and Chad Doughty of the Mile Hi Snowmobile Club started the The Heroes of Freedom Veterans Snowmobile Ride in 2018. That first year there were only 6 veterans who attended. Each year since the ride has grown and we hope it will continue growing because we want to give thanks to and share the outdoors with as many veterans as possible.
If you know of other veterans, sponsors or volunteers who would like to participate next year in the 2023 Heroes of Freedom Veterans Snowmobile Ride please share this email and the club website with them. Several pictures are attached below but they have been resized to fit this email. Higher resolution pictures plus video will be posted to the club website link below ASAP.
And finally the Mile Hi Snowmobile Club is hosting the Snowmobile For Life Poker Run Saturday January 19th, 2022 in Grand Lake. If you would like to snowmobile again the Snowmobile for Life Poker Run is a great event that benefits Flight for Life Colorado. Flight for Life Colorado was inspired by veterans returning from the Vietnam War in 1972 and it was the first Air Ambulance service in the country. 2022 is the 50th Anniversary for Flight for Life Colorado and is the 20th Anniversary of the Snowmobile for Life Poker Run.
Thank you and hope to see you again in 2023!
