While snow accumulates up on the hills, riders are getting a treat in town as the 2015 B.C. Snow Show comes to Vernon.

The provincial event has outgrown its old venue and has moved to Kal Tire Place, where it will span not one, but now two days: Friday, Nov. 13 from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Vernon Snowmobile Association with the British Columbia Snowmobile Association and Let’s Ride BC are putting on this provincial event,” said Jackie Moore, event co-ordinator. “And it is now a two-day event.

“Our main objective for this event is to promote avalanche awareness and safety. We are having free seminars for the public about being aware of the dangers and making sure you are prepared for it.”

Admission is by donation with all proceeds from the door going to the Easter Seals Snow A Rama Kids Campaign.

“We have just under 60 vendors coming from all over B.C. and some from Alberta,” said Moore. “The vendors will have all the newest snowmobiles, snowbikes, riding gear and accessories.

“We also have about 25 pro riders coming to sign autographs and answer questions.”

Some of the top snow shredders visiting the event include: Reagan Sieg, Brett Turcotte, Cody McNolty, Derek Wood, Cody Borchers, Shane Hansen, Stephanie Steezy, Brock Hoyer, Nadine Overwater and Julie Ann Chapman.

There will also be door prizes and other giveaways.

Food and beverages will also be available at Kal Tire Place.
