Copper Peak Snowmobile Hilclimb @ Copper Peak
Feb 19 all-day

The Copper Peak Snowmobile Hilclimb is BACK! It will be a 2 day event on President’s Weekend, Saturday, Feb 19th will be Qualifying, Sunday Feb 20th will be the Finals. This will replace the Snow Drag that was on the Poster/Calendar of this years MASTERS Racing Circuit Posters.

We will be looking for Sponsors to increase the Cash Purse for the Pro Stock King of the HIll and the Pro Mod King of the Hill.

Share, Copy, and/or get the word out so racers and fans can get Motel Rooms. When the MASTERS started and brought Copper Peak back to life years ago, people were staying a long way from Ironwood/Bessemer due to the popularity of this VERY CHALLENGING Hillclimb. So get your Motel Rooms reserved ASAP and plan on either competing or watching the BIGGEST and MOST CHALLENGING Snowmobile Hillclimb East of the Mississippi!
