Grand Portage Lodge & Casino is planning a fun and exciting getaway for Snowarama 2022 participants.

Lodge guests will be able to stay overnight in luxury rooms and enjoy relaxing amenities including an indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna. There is a new Stay 2 Nights, Get 3rd Night Free promotion. To book your stay, call 800-543-1384 with Offer Code GPSD.

Plans are being finalized for a dance party with FREE FALLIN, the popular Twin Cities Tom Petty Tribute band for Saturday, February 12. Snowarama participants and their friends (21+) will be able to attend the performance for free in the Event Center from 9 p.m. – midnight. Plus, plans are in the works for a Snowarama awards breakfast banquet to follow on Sunday, February 13.
Grand Portage Lodge & Casino continues to provide enhanced cleaning protocols for guest safety, along with self-check temperature and hand sanitizer at the entrance. They are also working toward bringing a COVID-19 PRC testing site right to the property to assist Canadian guests with reentry requirements. The timing for this has yet to be determined. Once confirmed, announcements will be made. Grand Portage Lodge & Casino looks forward to welcoming back all the snowmobilers for this wonderful annual event.
Snowarama must go on! In light of new restrictions related to COVID-19 regarding events and gatherings, we are working hard to ensure that Snowarama 2022 is a safe and fun experience for all. We are monitoring the situation closely, and in the event that in-person events are not permissible, Snowarama will follow the virtual format from last year, where riders were invited to continue their fundraising and enjoy a day on the trails at their leisure.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the virtual Snowarama last year a huge success. Last Snowarama, riders all across Ontario hit the trails in support of children with physical disabilities, setting an all-time record for online fundraising. We are looking forward to another incredible Snowarama! Please stay tuned for updates as we continue to assess the situation.
This year, all our Snowaramas are working together toward a combined goal of raising $170,000.
Funds raised at the Thunder Bay Snowarama will help provide children with physical disabilities with essential mobility and communication equipment, as well as summer camping opportunities at Easter Seals’ two fully accessible camps. It can cost families up to $40,000 a year to raise a child with a physical disability and most families can’t do it on their own. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Your support will have a significant impact on the lives of Easter Seals kids and their families.
Our thanks to you!
As a thank you for supporting Easter Seals kids during this very challenging time, anyone who raises a minimum of $100 will receive a toque and glove set courtesy of Fast Eddie Speedwear!
So why, wait? Register today and start fundraising!
If you’re a past Snowarama participant, you can sign up under your usual location. If you’re a new rider, you can sign up under the location of choice.
