2022 Race Director Welcome Letter!
I’d like to welcome you to the 55th Anniversary of Hay Days presented by Progressive!
This is the one weekend each year the Sno Barons Snowmobile Club is allowed to invite all of you to hang out with us at our facility for the “Official Start of Winter”! Our incredible crowd of spectators and fans are the reason Hay Days has become the largest snowmobile event in the world and a premier powersports show! Our entire club is busy planning what is sure to be the best Hay Days yet.
If you’ve never been to Hay Days, the buzz that’s created is legendary and exclusive to this event. 2022 brings back our friends from Arctic Cat, Polaris, SkiDoo and Yamaha, who will have their beautiful factory trailers in an area we call “Four Corners”.
Make sure to visit our Grass drags, where drivers will reach speeds of 150mph on snowmobiles that produce 800+hp, to the high flying freestyle jumpers that are over 40’ in the air. There will be UTV races in our main expo area and purpose built mud racers showing their expertise in our very own mud pit.
Let’s not forget about the vast expanse of our swap area. No matter what you are looking for, it will be in one of our three swap fields. And when you get hungry and thirsty, we have a wide variety of offerings in our multiple food courts and cold beer in our beer gardens.
Organizing an event of this size and complexity is not easy, and we are grateful to many people – nearly all of them volunteers – for making it happen. Thank you to our volunteers, neighbors and the many clubs who have donated their time and talents to making Hay Days a reality. A special thank you to the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, Fire Department and emergency personnel for ensuring that we enjoy a safe, orderly and fun event.
Finally, and most importantly, I want to thank you, our attendees, for making this the biggest, most fun-filled event of its kind anywhere. Without you there would be no Hay Days.
